The creation of the Boy Wonder. If you don't know the backstory, 'Robin' is born when Dick Grayson's parents were killed in a trapeze accident (the Graysons were a family of trapeze artists in the circus). Turns out that the accident was caused by the mob's sabotage. When Dick learns of what happened, he gets angry and such and Batman takes him under his wing and teaches him how to fight crime (since Bruce Wayne became Batman under similar circumstances). The rest, as they say, is history.
This picture is supposed to be the 'taking under the wing' made a bit more literal. I kinda like it. I plan to add in the background a newspaper clipping that says that the Grayson's were killed in an accident and what not. I think that it should come out pretty good.
This is the first in a series of drawings that I plan on doing relating to the ever-evolving relationship between Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson. This is mainly cuz I find it very fascinating that Bruce, who lost his own parents at an early age, has this strong need to be a father-figure to the Robin's in general and Dick Grayson in particular (in his own crime-fighting, ass-kicking kinda way).
