YOUNG JUSTICE: DICK GRAYSON by Jerome-K-Moore YOUNG JUSTICE: DICK GRAYSON by Jerome-K-Moore
WB Animation, Prop/Character Design, YOUNG JUSTICE, Dick Grayson Gotham Academy High School Mathlete photo. Pencil, Digital Color.

In the "Schooled" episode, Superboy battles the evil android Amazo, created by the mad scientist, Professor Ivo. As the battle progresses, the combatants wind up crashing through the abandoned hallways of Gotham Academy High School during the night. There, in one of the school's display cases, is a photo of young Dick Grayson as a Mathlete honoree. If you blink, you might miss it entirely. Haha! It's a detail that helps to flesh out the "reality" of the YOUNG JUSTICE world, and I was called upon to illustrate this photo, following the art style established by Lead Character Designer, Phil Bourassa. I designed the Gotham Academy crest, inspired by those used in the Harry Potter films. I'm posting it here to give everyone a better look, and, as always, these color choices are my own.

Cheers!

I noticed it the second time that I watched it. I managed to puase it in time to see the photograph properly. I expected a gymnastic or sport award, but not Mathlete!
M friend and I laughed when we saw what the trophy was for.

Nice! Too bad you couldn't give him the Dick Sprang hair curls, but this is an awesome second! Plus, as a civilian I might honestly not realize that this was Robin in disguise, so those subtleties are great.

I didn't design this character. I was simply assigned to render him in this specific way. I believe that Phil Bourassa did play around with those trademark forelocks in the early stages, however.

Okay. Wow, thanks for letting me know and replying! Regardless of the fact that you didn't design the character, it's an absolutely awesome rendering.

Is he in Middle school or High school? I think he's 13 so that should make him a middle school student, shouldn't it? Shouldn't it?

Jerome-K-Moore Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2012  Professional Filmographer
It all depends. I started high school at the age of 13. This was because I was born in December. In the case of bright young Mr. Grayson, he could easily have advanced a little more quickly than his peers.

The first time I saw the episode, I did blink and missed a portion of it. Then I thought, "HOLY GUACAMOLE WAS THAT ROBIN WITH NO SHADES?! HURRY UP AND LOAD THIS EPISODE ON DEMAND, XFINITY!!!" Later I saw it On Demand when I could pause the show and stared at the tiny thing for ten minutes. I think it would have been lass of a hassle if I just looked here first. Oh, well, fantastic work all the same.

Robin: "... that's my school!" - (probably) KF: "What?" - Robin: "Nevermind, let's go!"
I think this was a good moment in the show - mainly because there was background to the story of Robin (I'm always a fan of these small details that reveal more of our favourite heroes, whoever may be in focus) - so I'm really happy to be able to take a look at what you did here! :) Thanks for that, I like this a lot!
