DC Fan Art Club: Monthly Challenge, March 2020

Hello, DCFanArtClub ! As this is our first Monthly Challenge, I’m gonna bore y’all with 2 quick but important notes.

Read me first!

  1. Like the weekly challenge: ALL skill levels and media are accepted.

  2. Unlike the weekly challenge: Art submitted to the monthly challenge should be polished and involve more effort (that’s why you’ve got 30 days for it!). That said, this is for fun, and there’s no rule for what’s considered “polished.” Just use your best judgment. Ultimately, it’s meant to be a way of challenging yourself – so you do you.

Don’t forget, if you need help bringing your vision to life: REFERENCE SOS

Now, moving on to what you actually care about…


MONTHLY CHALLENGE #1:
“HOLY OCTOGENARIANS, BATMAN”

If you haven’t yet heard, this month DC celebrates the 80th anniversary of Robin! Clubs across the community are highlighting the Boy (and Girl) Wonders, and now’s your chance to honor your favorite of the bunch (unless someone beats you to it).

Below you’ll find a fairly extensive (but not exhaustive) list of those who have donned the costume and/or title through the years. Sadly, some Robins did not make the cut (b/c I’m far behind in comics and was afraid of running into spoilers), but if there’s a Robin you want to draw that’s NOT on this list, just stake your claim in the comments.

Due: March 31, 2020
Tools: Your choice (draw, paint, customize figures, sculpt - anything goes)

How it works:


In the comments, name which Robin you’d like to claim. I’ll keep updating this post throughout the month to reflect which Robins are no longer available. You can submit your art any time this March.

Notes:

  • Wherever possible, I provided links to comics in the DCU library for guidance. If there isn’t a link below, I promise you can find images on Google.

  • These links are only meant to serve as guides; they do NOT have to influence what you draw.

  • For example, Damian’s costume has been updated throughout the years. I shared a link to his first uniform, but you can have him wearing any version you want.

  • Although this is technically Master Grayson’s 80th, our challenge is 100% Robin-themed. That means lots of winged booties and hot pants, but no Nightwings, Red Hoods, etc!
