Damian by GavinMichelli Damian by GavinMichelli
I would really like Damian's current costume, if not for all of the green. Really, it's hard to take someone seriously when they're dressed in christmas colors. I mean really, green boots with red laces? Is he supposed to be an elf?

The cape is kinda reminiscent of Ra's al Ghul's, even though if you take the original Dick Grayson Robin cape and pop the collar, that's pretty much what it would look like. So it's kind of a nod to both, I guess. The sword is another nod to D's grampa, but of course, he wouldn't use that as a killing weapon...right? ;P

I would imagine him using the sword like Leonardo in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles who seems to be able to fight with two katanas without making his enemies bleed. I think all of the Robins should have their own costume.

Robin for Captain Leatherwings?

Very stylish, though I'm not sure that red and yellow are any less festive without the green, it's certainly a visually striking outfit.

Well thank you!  As a general rule, I just don't like red and green touching in a costume.  The saturation of the colors is just too similar to work together comfortably.  At any rate, two colors is usually enough to make a memorable costume.  Adding a third tends to make it messy.

This costume design would make more sense since his batsuit bears resemblance.

Y'know, I actually didn't realize that until I drew this and people started commenting on the similarity! I guess it's the extra Ra's Al Ghul influence.

Speaking of Ra's Al Ghul, I was also thinking that the Batman of Earth Two would
have accepted Ra's Al Ghul's offer in becoming the leader of his organization.
