Like Looking in a Mirror by hellcorpceo Like Looking in a Mirror by hellcorpceo

Ahem. I love the sort of odd parental relationship between Batman and Nightwing. Even though Nightwing is a lot less dark in terms of personality, he and Batman are more alike than either of them will ever admit. Which is probably why they fight so much. <3

I like Alex Ross's perspective as to whether or not Batman's eyes would be visible through his cowl. As Ross pointed out, Batman would never do anything that would impede his field of view. Plus, showing the eyes allows for a much wider range of expression, and I love Nightwing's baby blues.

Nightwing and Batman belong to DC, blah blah not mine blah.

Lineart (which actually turned out pretty good, a rarity for me) is here: [link]

it reminds me of Brave at the scene called ''the pries'' in which queen  Elinore  gives a similar glare to Merida

Oh my Godness, this is my new desktop!
I love it so much, I had think it was an official art!

Those two are definitely alike.

I'm glad you went with a view of the eyes instead of the lenses in the mask/cowl. 
Eyes convey so much emotion, and you nailed it!

Wow!  This is GREAT!  Really great!  I thought it was a screen capture from an animated film, and, when I saw it, I thought, "wait, where is THAT from?  I want to see it!"  And I think that you're right that Bruce and Dick are both alike - in their stubbornness, among other things, and this is VERY WELL DONE!  I love dick's hair here, and both their faces are really nice!  LOVE IT!

This is insanely awesome! And I'm not just saying that because Nightwing is hot. Giggle 

Your style and talent is so professional. This seriously looks like a screen capture from the latest DC animated film!!

I like the idea of seeing their eyes, but I always thought that the white on their cowl was like... super detective gear that are like... high tech glasses? I don't know...

Nightwing is my favorite DC character ever and I adore Batman. They have the greatest father-son relationship, even if they do have intense disagreements sometimes. Daddybats is the best.

Love this - you drew the perfect line between hardcore comic and cartoon. Great expressions!

They look so cool! As a comic guy, I love it when people draw superheroes like the comics and don't make them TOO cartoon-ish.
black4minister Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2012
You realise that with this kind of skill you should be working for Disney - or the animation section of DC. This pic is so AMAZING! I don't know if I love you or hate you...

I still think he'd enhance his view. So he'd have the "white eyes" going on.

Great picture by the way

so, night wing is jason?
why did everyone hate jason?
hellcorpceo Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Nightwing is Dick Grayson. If I remember right, comics fans weren't fond of Jason because he seemed like an irritating interloper that the writers were trying to replace the recently-Nightwing'd Dick with.

Plus his character was introduced stealing the wheels off the Batmobile, and nobody likes a thief.
morqwal Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
oh okay. forgive.
i just was going off of some articles and the Dark Night Returns.
coulda sworn nightwing was jason. oh well, thank you! the more you know...

Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
