Today Jojo draws Batman Beyond (kinda)!
So this week I’ve been having Jojo draw Batman allies from memory. She did a really good Batgirl and I thought she was on the right track with Nightwing, but when I asked her to draw Terry McGinnis, the Batman of the future, I realized what went wrong.
Jojo clearly had seen Nightwing and Terry and she had a general idea that they were both teen “batmen”. With these two drawings side by side, it’s clear she jumbled up the details of the two.
Yesterday she drew Dick Grayson wearing Terry’s costume (with Batwoman’s gloves). Today she’s drawn Terry, wearing pretty much Nightwing’s costume but with Terry’s more wing-like cape, and basically regular Batman’s head.
She did say, “I knew there was a blue one and a red one.”
The really tragic thing for me is that this is probably the best Batman drawing she’s ever done, and it’s a mistake.
The tragic thing for Jojo is I just showed her a picture of Stephanie Brown’s Batgirl costume and she saw how much purple she could have drawn.
I think she’s going to cry.
