DCU Vol.8: Teen Titans by alexmax DCU Vol.8: Teen Titans by alexmax
After 2 waves of villains, it's about time to have some more heroes! I've covered the JLA (twice) and the JSA, so the next obvious step was to go for the Teen Titans, who I believe must be the third most popular team for DC Comics.

I will confess I am not a fan of anime, so I never really watched the Teen Titans cartoon... the fact that I didn't read Teen Titans comics didn't make me feel like I was missing anything anyways. Then why did I choose to draw the Teen Titans? Well, I've covered most of my favorite DC characters in previous volumes, so I figured why not do characters I'm slightly indifferent to...

Static: Tried to stay as close as what he looked like in his own animated series.

Beast Boy: A bit from the cartoon show and a bit from the Comics.

Starfire: The "older" Starfire from the comics, but with an outfit similar to that of the cartoon show.

Cyborg: 95% inspired by the cartoon. The comics' look is too disco-funky for my taste. Heheh.

Raven: Unlike Cyborg, Raven is closer to her comicbook appearance, the cartoon's version is too goth. I made her younger like in the cartoon tho!

Blue Beetle: While this version of BB appeared by the time I felt that DC had completely lost it, I can't deny the hi-tech armor is cool looking.

Arrowette: Hmm, I'm not sure if she has ever been a member of the Titans, but I needed to have 7 characters.

If you are wondering where is Robin, he was covered elsewhere.

AWESOME! Love them all. Great job on their designs. Favourite's probably BB, with the Cartoon and comic amalgamation. The poses and expressions of them all, were also very nice. And nice job, on the backgrounds too. A very nice touch.

More than smiling, I see her relaxed. Yeah, I didn't know much about Raven when I did that.

Thank you. Isn't Static Shock pretty much like that in the cartoon? At least that was my intention.

Yep, and plus he is based off the comic series by the same guy who made that show. The late Dwayne McDuffie himself (God bless his soul and my condolences to his family)...Personally, if the teen titans ever DID make more seasons in the original show, I'd say bring Static and his allies from Dakota City, Wondergirl (Donna Troy, not Cassie Sandsmark who I think is better off with Young Justice, mind you.) and Supergirl to join the titans to make it more intriguing and more better.

Isn't Arrowette really Artemis??? Just wondering... Still looks amazing...

Artemis in YJ looks like Arrowette with a green color scheme. I'm guessing so they could link her better with Green Arrow (?). Even if, from what I've seen from that show, she isn't exactly trained or a protege of GA. Speedy who was GA's sidekick had a red uniform so... I don't know. It's also confusing why they chose the name Artemis, maybe they were thinking to make her Wonder Woman's pupil, since there was no one representing WW in the first season of YJ?

Back when I made this, New52 hadn't been announced yet. Can't tell if Cyborg's design is good or not in new52, I'm too biased against the whole thing.

Rose is absolutely amazing. She's one of the better characters of DCU. Even Robin said she was one the world's deadliest assassin turned hero.

It was when Rae heard Arrowette talking to Blue Beetle and calling her, Kori, Garth and Victor "the Veterans" that she realised that a long time had passed since they could call themselves The Teen Titans" with straight faces.

Come to think of it, she should have realised that when Dick and Barbara's twins were born...!

Great character designs for the team. Reflects well both their comic and cartoon versions. ;) You should think of splitting these up on bookmarks and sell them at a con sometime.
