RoBatman / Cyborg Batman


Woooo, it's been a while since I've posted, eh? SORRY DUDES. Lots of busy + crazy + busy crazy. I have been drawing, but mostly concepting stuff for an upcoming COMIC. Yes, you read that correctly.

But enough about THAT. Let's talk about THIS. RoBatman was drawn MONTHS ago at a sketchgroup meeting. It begged to be colored, but unfortunately coloring this puppy took a while. But, at long last, it is finished.

Someone asked me "Why does he only have two settings: Sleep and Murder?" To which I responded "Does he really need anything more?" If you would happen to run into RoBatman in a dark, conveniently-wide alleyway, be brave. You'd be a cartoon, after all, and not a real person. Throw a pie at him!

There's a little bit of everything here. Drew Brees and the O RLY owl. The "Pie Slide" from What Would You Do (in the golden age of Nickelodeon), a whale wearing a sombrero and even a couple of Star Wars references (for good measure.) Robin is in there. I just realized that he couldn't be a cyborg because his name would confuse his status: RO-bin? Robobin? Rocybin? None of it works!

Totally worth staying in on a Friday to finish!
