Family Portrait by LetsRockInc Family Portrait by LetsRockInc
I'm not exactly fond of how this came out color wise or background wise, but I was going for a family portrait feel. I think the colors are a little too blue on this screen, but on the ipad they look okay. I dunno. Haha, they're a little orangier on the device I painted this on. In any case, here is the Bat boys. <3 I love them all, and a part of me longs for family connection with these boys, but noooo, DC makes Jason a total ass, and Damey-face is moody and really only tolerates (lurves) Grayson. Dick and Jay never get along, and Timmy at one point respected both Jason and Dick (totally stalked Dick too). I don't know, I imagine, if they were to get a family portrait, and Jay was actually included in the picture, it might look something like this. I <3 the Bat boys.

Just playing with a simplistic comicy style, but I think I may go back to some of my gestural paintings soon, haha. I'm missing the gestures and sketchiness.

It's always funy when Jason is taller than dick. Ha, oh and I just looked at this picture clearly and 'D' looks like a woman(Grayson)

Looking back on this picture, yeah, I definitely agree! Dick looks a bit womanly.

I like to think Jason is taller than Dick though, haha. I think it's odd when everyone's height follows their age when they're adults. For example, I'm the younger sibling in my family, and I'm taller than my sister.

I like how Tim looks. It isn't common seeing him look genuinely happy.

It certainly feels that way! To me, he's often depicted as very serious or maybe even depressed from time to time-- with reason of course, but I rather enjoy moments where he is happy. :) Thank you for your kind comments!

I love this picture!! I think you definitely captured all of their personalities perfectly! I've always found that in these portraits Jaybird always looks like a dick (...lol?) and he's always grumpy and facing the other way, but I love how this is so in character in that Jay is also the sort of guy who'd be extremely protective of his family, should they have had a tighter bond. Lovin' the "tough love" hold he's got on Tim and I love how clearly you can see Dick as the more affectionate, mature, nurturing brother with his much more gentle pat on Damian's head!

LOVE this picture!

Haha! I'm glad the personalities read in this piece so clearly! I've seen the typical representation of Jay as being kind of standoffish, and I get where that interpretation comes from, but to me, he doesn't completely hate his family either-- maybe distanced because of his situation, but, I almost feel that in a blink of an eye he would be there to protect the baby birds, of course, he wouldn't let that be known. Plus Tim also had at one time looked up to Jason too-- although I think Dick was/is his all time hero, but Jason influenced Tim too. Haha, these boys have such complicated relationships! ^^Anyway, thanks so much! :)

I completely agree with your entire batboys analysis!! Jason's always been the type of guy who'd uh..."chase the car first" kind of dog? (I think Tim recently called him that once in one of the new 52 issues), and I think that applies to his family too - that if any one of them was seriously in danger, BAM, Jason would be the first one to be there, whether or not it was a trick, trap, or whatever, that would've been his number one concern. I get the feeling that Dick might've been Tim's all time hero as a younger child, but as he he grew older he might've been able to see and relate with Jason as well. In an ideal world I would love for Dick and Jason to get along, but I have a suspicion that would probably never happen :(.

You're welcome!! It was my pleasure!

Yeah, was it in Teen Titans that he referred to Jason like that? I think so. I remember that. :) But yeah, I feel like Jay cares more than he lets on, in some way. Dick and Jason have potential of getting along, but I think Jay has a misguided jealousy and anger towards Dick as being the "golden boy" or something like that, which is unfortunate. I like to pretend that they can get along, and do, except when Bruce is concerned and when methodology is concerned.

That's seriously cute. I love that they're all holding on to each other. Manly mag bro hugs ftw! ^^

And the colors look great on my screen, if it matters. :x

It looks like you inked this digitally, and if so I have a bit of advice how you can make it look a tad smoother. Where some of the lines end (implied lines, lines that cut off without connecting to another line, etc), you can take the digital eraser and shave them down to a finer point, so that they fade out nicely. If they look too soft to you with that bit of fineness, you can go to your line layer in Photoshop and use "Filter > Sharpen."

Similarly, you can take the eraser and smooth out/shave down some of your other lines so that they look nice and steady instead of a bit wobbly, and so that the thickness varies. But this IS just kind of a casual piece, so don't think I'm nitpicking. XD I think it's gorgeous! (Especially how they each have their own nose shape, it's nice to see your consideration of varied facial features show through in a simpler more comic-style piece.)

Inking typically tends to be my least favorite aspect of the arting process. I would much rather draw or paint, haha. Inking is one of those things I need to practice a little more and any and all advice, I will happily take! Maybe when I get a tablet again I can get some inking in, and have you critique some of it? :D i didnt use photoshop for the inking of this piece. The app I used for it doesnt have a lot of those features that are nice for cleaning some lines, unfortunately, except for the eraser, haha. And not to mention the resolution gets shot pretty easily on the ipad. But like I said, I would definitely appreciate any advice you can give on digital inking. :)

Anyway, I'm glad it's my screen that's being kinda dumb with the colors. I <3 colors. <3

I'm glad you like it though! :) it was fun doing the different facial features.

That said, technically your inks are amazing since you didn't have any of those tools. Dude, I can't wait to see what you'd do with a tablet. If you ink with it, that is.
