Redesign contest - nightwing by shoze Redesign contest - nightwing by shoze
i've been looking for more art challenges and i found this: [link] - a redesign contest for a batman character - so i decided to give it a try.

nightwing was always my favorite bat but i always thought he's a bit short changed in the wardrobe department. heck, the guy had it though since day one.
good enough reason to do a little makeover, right?

nothing too original but at least i tried with the presentation :)

It looks to me like if Tim Drake took up the Nightwing mantle after Dick died or something. Very cool, I dig it.

Seems more like a blue version of Spoiler than Nightwing.

Hello shoze, I was wondering if I could have your permission to make a female version of this? (in real life not drawn) it won't be posted to any social media, I just would like your permission

Can I make a request?

you can ask. if it sounds like something i'd like to do i just might do it.  

but i'll be less likely to refuse a kiriban request. if you catch a nice number on my pageview i might award you with a gift pic.

I can totally see this being a design for a gender-swapped Nightwing, but it doesn't really work for Dick Grayson.  It's a very cool costume, but as an acrobat and a former Robin he just wouldn't wear an outfit with a cape and such loose fitting clothing.  Perhaps this could work as a "Nightwing: Year One" costume with this being an intermediate between the Robin costume and the more traditional Nightwing costume.  Basically, awesome design, just not for Dick.

thank you for the crit. you sure put a lot of time and thought in it. and you aren't the first to raise that issue and i am aware that Dick hates capes but as i mentioned earlier in the comments this was more for the purpose of exercising in costume design for myself and less for doing a "legit" nightwing 2.0 outfit.  

btw, as a rule i usually do give thought to character tendencies and taste when designing.

cheers.
