Note: This collection by Ilias Kyriazis is inspired by DC’s recent revamp of the Teen Titans for “The New 52,” but the artist takes those heroes and puts them through a rigorous set of costume revisions to come to this amazing final product. After the finished pinup, look below for Kyriazis’ amazing concept sketches. – Chris A.
Here’s what Ilias had to say about the design:
These were done with the DCnU reboot in mind so I knew that:
1- They should have a team look. (“Titans first, sidekicks second”).
2- Red Robin should have wings.
On the other hand I didn’t treat this as a complete “they-meet-for-the-first-time” relaunch and I kept some things from they past costumes like Superboy’s bracelets and Impulse elements in Kid Flash. Red was a common in everyone’s part costumes so it was an easy choice for a team color. I incorporated “T” logos and downplayed individual logos (Superboy getting an “S” in his shield could be a plot point). I kinda based the final illustation on Brett Booth’s cover and I threw in my take on “coal girl” (I don’t know if it has been announced who she is yet).
