Bat Kids 2011 by jbramx2 Bat Kids 2011 by jbramx2
This shall be moved to my scrapbook...

mwa ha ha ha, finally! I have started and finished a picture in the same day! YAY! But damn, did my hand hurt afterwards...

granted this is just a sketch, but it's more than I planned. I'm quite happy I managed to fit in ALL the bat kids. Helena included!

What gave me the most trouble were the top three. I rotated them twice before they all fit in right! I'm still not happy with the gap between Dick and Steph, but I did want to have her leaning down between Damian and Barbara....so this'll have to do. and besides, somehow I managed to have all the batgirls on one side and all the robins on the other, with Steph (whose been both Robin and Batgirl) in the center. YAY!


Oh DC, PLEASE let me draw a manga version of your characters. It would be so shojo-tastic, you would make a major profit from all the girl readers, Y DO YOU NOT WANT THE OTHER HALF'S MONEY??? Give us this little corner, please? please? please? (geez...Marvel gave their female readers an X-men manga, I'm soo sure we could do better)...

*ahem*

SO, this is the who's who...with their possible manga characterization if I had any say in it!

Starting from top center going clockwise...

Dick Grayson, age: 25, Batman's first sidekick! Circus-raised Dick became Robin I when his acrobat parents were murdered and he sought justice for them. He grew to become DC's popular golden boy. Everyone loves this guy, ladies and men included. He led the Teen Titan, Outsiders and eventually is destined to take Batman's mantle some day...not that he wants it. He's quite happy as Nightwing...still we don't always get what we want...Will he be able to handle the heavy responsibility when it does come? Everyone seems to believe it...but can the ever so chipper Nightwing pull off being the dark intimidating Batman? Only time will tell...

Helena Bertinelli...age:24, aka The Huntress (and Batgirl II) As the rich, beautiful, sophisticated and bored daughter of a murdered Italian family, not many take her seriously at first. But beware to cross her, it won't be her expensive Gucci purse that'll strike you down. This fine young lady holds many dark surprises beneath her couture sleeves.

Cassandra Cain...age 19, aka Batgirl III, is a mysterious small, quiet girl found by Barbara Gordon. She has revealed herself to be an extreme force to be reckoned with. Running away from a dark violent past, sheltered & uneducated Cass struggles to fit in with the Bat family and find her place in this brave new world she has entered. Will she succeed? Or will her past drag her back and consume her?

Stephanie Brown...age 18, aka Batgirl IV. Pretty poor gal was from the wrong side of the tracks who dreamed of a brighter destiny. Working to stop her crook father, she donned the Spoiler costume to bring him down. When Robin gave up his mantle, she picked it up to continue to provide light & hope for Gotham City. Sadly Tragedy struck and she disappeared from the face of the planet for two years. She was recovering from major injuries and took up more training in Africa to become stronger. She has returned to Gotham City in time for the Next Great Battle. The results of which will impact Gotham City's future and hers. As the new Batgirl, she fights crime alongside the Bat family once again, striving to give light and hope to the new Gotham City and to prove herself worthy of a bigger destiny.

Barbara Gordon, age: 26, started out as a highly intelligent spirited brave young girl who took up Batman's symbol and made it her own as the first Batgirl, a beacon of hope and cheer in Gotham City and an inspiration to all girls. A physical disability in later years did not stifle that same spirit and she expanded her horizons and rose to become the widely sought after Oracle, a master of knowledge and communication and leader of the world wide network of heroes known as the Birds of Prey. Girl's come a long way from the rooftops of her city...watch her as she guides the next generation of heroes.

Damian Wayne, age: 8 aka Robin V, is the smart, arrogant, anti-social, assassin-trained son of Batman and Talia al Ghul. Revealed to his father as a grown child, Damian has had little time to bond with his father who is uneasy at the almost grown up but spoiled attitude of his son. Finding himself pursued by his grandfather's league of assassins, Damian seeks his father's help, but must be satisfied with his father's family instead. Rebellious, angry and rejected, the boy becomes a handful for the family, but when the chips are down...perhaps he can let himself trust this pack of strangers after all. In the end, they may be all he's got.

Tim Drake, age 17, is Robin III...gifted with an uncanny intelligence since birth, Tim was able to figure out Batman and Robin's secret identities. He never forgot the night he met Dick Grayson, the night the Graysons were killed. Soon after Batman gained a partner with the same moves as Dick. Years later, this led Tim to reveal what he knew to Dick when Robin II died and Batman began to lose control. But Dick was a grown man with a new name, Nightwing, and would not return to Batman's side as Robin. Geeky weak Tim then took it upon himself to become Robin and bring Batman back to sanity. For years he trained and grew. He gained and lost family and friends, darkening his spirit and making him sharper. But the will to fight never left him and he eventually became Red Robin, working solo to push his limits and to become a better warrior.

Jason Todd, age 19 aka Red Hood (aka Robin II). Orphaned, neglected, and abused, living off the streets, scruffy street rat Jason didn't hope for much in life but the next meal, until he had the bright idea to steal the tires off the Batmobile... In a whirlwind his life changed and he became the adopted son of millionaire Bruce Wayne and Robin II. He managed it well enough, but always felt overshadowed by his "older brother", Dick Grayson. With the discovery of his birth mother, he risks giving it all up for the chance to meet her. Sadly, reality does not prove kind to Jason and he is betrayed in the worst way possible. Believed to be dead for years, Jason comes back with a vengeance as the Red Hood, an antihero who strives to control crime with brutal methods that were taught to him by the league of assassins. Hurt, jealous and angered by what he finds in Gotham City since his "death", Jason struggles to overcome his painful past and find a peaceful place to finally rest his head and call his own. Perhaps, it may be as simple as a quiet surrender to the nest he never should have left...


Enjoy folks! ^^

DISCLAIMER: all these folks do not belong to me, they be DC's. A shame really...*sighs*

I'm almost positive, that less than a real-time year before the original "One Year Later" jump-ahead, Tim celebrated his 16th B-day in his own title. Thus, in my head, everything post OYL is Tim Drake, age 17. I'm really glad to have this confirmed.

Then the New 52 came along and fucked this all up. Lol.

Good bios for each of them. Almost got them to exactly with only a few minor changes. Though I think you made Cass and Steph a year too old and Damian two years too young.

this
is
not
a
joke!
carry
on
reading!
or
you
will
die,
even
if
you
only
looked
at
the
word
warning!


ONCE
THERE
WAS
A
LITTLE
GIRL
CALLED
CLARISSA,
SHE
WAS
10
YEARS
OLD
AND
SHE
LIVED
IN
A
MENTAL
HOSPITAL,
BEACUSE
SHE
KILLED
HER
MUM
AND
DAD.








SHE
GOT
SO
BAD
SHE
STARTED
TO
KILL
ALL
THE
STAFF
IN
THE
HOSPITAL
SO
THE
GOVERMENT
DECIDED
THAT
THE
BEST
IDEA
WAS
TO
GET
RID
OF
HER
SO
THEY
SET
UP
A
SPECIAL
ROOM
TO
KILL
HER,
AS
HUMANE
AS
POSSIBLE
BUT
IT
WENT
RONG
THE
MACHINE
THEY
WERE
USEING
WENT
WRONG.








AND
SHE
WAS
SAT
THERE
IN
AGONY
FOR
HOURS
UNTILL
SHE
FINALLY
DIED.








NOW
EVERY
WEEK
ON
THE
DAY
OF
HER
DEATH
SHE
RETURNS
TO THE
PERSON
THAT
READS
THIS
LETTER,
ON
A
MONDAY
NIGHT
AT
12:00
SHE
KREEPS
INTO
YOUR
ROOM
AND
KILLS
YOU,
BUT
SLOWLY
AND
PAINFULLY
SLOWLY
CUTTING
DIFFRENT
PARTS
OF
UR
BODY
THEN
WATCHES
YOU
BLEED
TO
DEATH
IF
YOU
DONT
SEND
THIS
TO
20
PEOPLE
BY
MIDNIGHT
SHELL
BE
COMEING
TO KILL
YOU!
SEND
IT
SO
SHE
HAS
ANOTHER
LOAD
OF
PEOPLE
TO
GET
AND
FORGETS
ABOUT
YOU
DONT
BELVE ME
HEY?

EXAMPLE
1:
JENNY
DIDNT BELIVE THIS AND DELETED IT WITHOUT EVEN READING THE WHOLE THING! A FEW DAYS LATER ON THE MONDAY NIGHT SHE WAS WOKEN UP BYE LOUDE FOOTSTEPS AND HEAVY BREETHING THERE WAS CLARISSA STANDING THERE WITH A HUGE KNIFE AND WELL JENNY IS HISTORY NOW.

woot, thank you! Mind you I used their real backstories and made it a bit more workable for a manga series. But thank you! They're all very unique and far as I know have never once been together on the same page. Closest they've come to all being together was in one story arc. But they were all in separate issues and working different areas (and one of them was a villain, but I digress...). Thanks again! (sorry took me a while to respond!)

Great, great composition. And I love your manga interpretations of them. Is it too much to ask for full body artwork for them? Maybe a horizontal splash page?

At the very least, do Cass. She's my absolute fave. And she's Asian to boot, so the manga style would fit her perfectly. ^_^

LOL, thank you! Well this worked to be a preview of sorts, I wanted to fit them all in one page with little hassle. But I sorta did that now! er, I've made them into an Harry Potter potrait of sorts, if you're curious (just forgot to include Helena this time...) But yeah, thanks! Cass is a cutie that I have much fun drawing. :D

LMAO...lord, but it's hard to think of a story with no wangst. Trust me, I've been trying sooo hard cuz I just took over a tumblr account that features a Batgirls manga in the shojo vibe. and no matter how hard I try every version has some tale of woe to it, cuz good grief, almost all of them have WOE in their life story. LOL...(well except for Steph, cuz nothing gets this girl down oh no!)

But I'm not giving up! I'm just gonna have to do slice of life type stories until something better comes up! (hey, btw! wanna contribute a page?)

Helena: Hmph. At least when I used lethal force, I did it with style. You robbed a hell's angel for that outfit?
Dick: Now, now, Helena. Easy Rider did shape a generation... A few generations ago.
Jason: Urge to kill... Raiiiiising...
Tim: *enjoys silently Damian's discomfort*
Stephanie: Come on, guys. Say cheeese!
Cass: *just smiles for the camera*
Damian: *frowns for the camera and contemplates chopping off Steph's hand*
Barbara: *sighs at the scuffle on the first row* Boy wonders will be boy wonders... I guess.

Bruce: *sighs as he lowers the camera* One picture. I just wanted one photograph...

Make Helena a shinto priestess, Cass a ninja, Barbara an imperial princess, Stephanie a geisha in training, Dick a samurai, Jason a yakuza, Tim a monk, and Damian's the son of kitsune & a shogun. (yes, that would make Bruce the shogun...).
