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 :)

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.

Well, I was going to request a drawing of my two favorite characters, Roy Harper and Conner Hawke

Very well drawn, but he kinda looks like a member of the Brotherhood.

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.

This is really nice! It gives NW (also my fave of the Bat family) a really dark look. It also gives him the brash teenager/impulsive guy kind of look and that's really nice considering he guys down guys with freaking shock batons. The art itself looks gritty (new style!) which adds to the overall dark themed look, the only thing I would have changed is the background since it doesn't bode well with the actual design. Now, of course I'm just assuming you when with a darker look but hey, just my opinion. I loooove this redesign, keep up the awesome work!

thanks. and you might be right about the background. didn't really give it much thought, i was just playing around with the design idea. i got kinda tired when i reached the final touches stage ^^;
