So I am starting on a project and basing both character off some cartoon rotos I found on the interwebs. I don't know if they're from the same cartoon or not, I don't really care, haha. I just want them to look cool together.

 

I am making each mesh from scratch, except for the hands which I took from my J.D. character. I might take more things from other models of mine, but I'm trying to remember how to do all this stuff - so making it again is the best way I'm thinking.

 

Here's what I got so far of the Batman. Just the base body. Still have to add all the detail and fix stuff as I go along. I should also mention that this is just a screen grab.

 

Thanks for looking.

that reminds me of a posable Batman figure we had in the 60s. It was rubber like a Gumby.

Thanks guys! Haha, Robert I had the Plastic Man and Spider-man in the '70s ;).

 

Here is the base model for Robin. He went alot faster since I remembered how to model a little better, lol. I think I need to remodel their shoulders though. Right now they share the same structure, but I don't think I like the way the shoulder connections are going. They look ok, but the splinage is kinda messy.

 

I went on google and found that Batman is 6'2" and Robin is 4'??? Ok -- but he looks really small here. Should I take him up to closer to 5' or what?

 

Thanks again for looking.

The original Robin in the 40s was only 8 years old, but I think most of the Robins have been older. You might split the difference and go 4'6" if you want to keep the contrast between them. According to Google, the average height of a ten year old boy is 54.5"

The only Robin I know is Burt Ward.

Yeaaaaah -- I decided to up him to 5'. He was just too little. I wasn't comfortable with him being that young.

 

I'd rather have Julie Newmar than Burt Ward, haha.

S'pose it depends which Robin you're doing. From what I remember of Batman the animated series, Dick Grayson was quite a bit taller than Tim Drake.

My refs are from the Young Justice cartoon, so I think thats Tim.
