A Night-winged Valentine by JesIdres A Night-winged Valentine by JesIdres
Nightwing and Oracle get a little close and acrobatic for this valentine's day.


Yes, I love Dick and Babs waaaaaaay too much. Dan Didio can be DAMNED, they are one of the most believable, wonderful relationships that ever graced DC's universe. One idiot EIC isn't going to change that. (And yes, I own the elusive BOP #8.)

Dang they're so adorable. I don't understand why they get such wrath. Mah OTP, how I love them.



Yes, I know spoilers of what's Didio's hinted for the future of these two characters (to usurp the famous foxhack's cry, "DIIIIIIIIIIIDIIIIIIOOOOOOOO"). I'm currently figuring out how to beat him with my cluebat.


3-4 hours, more or less, over two days, pencil sketch + Photoshop w/Intuos 3.

(I really, really hope I posed him right. Broken Spines are not romantic)

God I love this ship so much, I was so angry when Batman Beyond didn't have them married. They were my favorite couple in the series, I hated it when they broke up

Seriously, I did not understand why they had to go with the 'Babs will sleep with any of the batboys' route.  It was the one point that stuck out like a sore thumb for me.

I just don't get why they pulled the crap of them not ending up together in the Animated series. Seriously? Putting her with Batman? What the hell's that crap? And then by Beyond she's not even with anyone from the original stuff!

We might have our chance with Young Justice! Greg Weisman answers questions on his forums, and this has been the result.

Question: Will Robin be getting any love interests in the future?
Answer: Well I believe he has a crush on Zatana and he and Barbara are close.

Question: What is the nature of Dick and Barbara's relationship?
Answer: Best friends....with potential.

Question: Are Dick and Barbara dating?
Answer: They're not a couple, but she's interested.

Granted, so far Babs has only made a couple cameos, but I'm still happy about this! WE WILL NOT BE IGNORED!!

Dick always knew how to cheer Babs up on the darkest of days. He didn't see the wheelchair, he didn't see the crippled, useless legs on the girl who once could fly. All he ever saw was the woman that he loved. That is why Kori never stood a chance.

*Tilts head* I THINK that position is totally anatomically possible. And you seem to have gotten the positioning and everything totally correct. Color me impressed!

Anyway... this is sooo cute! I can so see Dick doing that, lol. (ONLY he would be doing acrobatics with such a serious expression on his face). Adorable!

Would it be wrong for me to say that I actually like that you drew Babs in her wheelchair? Don't get me wrong: I do NOT like that she's paralyzed, but I love that even though she is paralyzed, she didn't let it break her and still found a way to fight back against the evil that did this to her. In a way, the wheelchair shows just how strong she is. If that makes any sense.

Yeah, as much as the paralyzation sucks, I love the strength of Babs as Oracle. And I like to think Dick does too.

Thank you very much!

Let's usurp the post of EIC and give it to someone else. >.> Someone who knows a good couple when they see one. Nightwing and Oracle are my FAVORITE. Stupid Didio. STUPID. :X
Lovely picture. I think you posed them just right...and I agree with you. Broken spines are not romantic. :XD:

Wait, what "spoilers" were hinted at?

...of course, with the new JLA line up and just about every KC character but Nightstar showing up, I can guess.

He's the man-ho of DC! (Who wouldn't want to tap that latex butt?) Sadly, the EIC at DC hates them together, and has stated it will never happen as such.

This drawing looks really great. I see that you spent time towards your work.

However, I am quite concern about Oracle. I mean, Night wing shows some shading within his tip of the toes, which would indicate that there is little light shining from that direction, yet there is little shading around the back of Oracle's back, which would also include the back of the chair and wheels.

I am not sure if it was there intentionally, but it would looks slightly better if you work shading on the back.

But nevertheless, the drawing looks superb.
