fanart, Robin III (Tim Drake)

Fandom: DC Comics
Characters/Pairings: Robin III (Tim Drake)
Media used: mixed media (ink, acrylic paint, chalk pastels, razor blade)
Rating/warnings: G, none
Notes/comments: This turned out rather more mixed media than planned, due to me trying to salvage the image from the completely blotched state that was the result of a supposedly water-resistant ink being quite soluble in specific circumstances after all. So it looks rather different from what I imaged, and not nearly as nice as a promising pre-blotch inbetween state did (which I unfortunately didn't scan), that had more texture and scratched gradients, but the black ink dissolved when I tried adding the color highlights and thus the ink ran into them. Also as usual the scanner didn't actually scan the colors as they are on the paper, though I tried to correct it as best as I could to compensate for that piece of color blind crap. Um, well, I usually try not talk this much about everything that went wrong (it doesn't give a good audience bias) but this was a very frustrating evening, and I can't help the venting.

I think it came out awesome for all of the trouble you had with it, and I love that yellow-and-red on the black. It's gorgeous.

And omg, his hand, I hate doing hands how did you do that?

Nice! I'm really impressed with how much detail you got into an image made up of all dark colors.

I dunno what the original was supposed to look like, but this looks really cool, the textures and colors. The shape of his arm looks particularly good.
