My entry into Project Rooftop's Batman 2.0 challenge.
I was trying to keep all the necessary (and Frankly incredibly subtle) elements of Dick's Nightwing design and merge them with some classic Batman elements. My major sticking points were that one, as an acrobat Dick wouldn't wear the cape, and two, that to maintain the Batman silhouette without the cape required the ears. I chose to hybridize Dick's and Bruce's symbols on the front and back of the costume, making the front Bruce's with the feather like cuts from Dick's (a la his Teen Titans design) and on the back Dick's with the bat wings of Bruce's.
I wanted to keep a sleek feel to Dick so I tried to steer away from the utility belt (and the glove pockets) and simply gave him an all purpose pouch on his lower back. The redesigned gloves and shoes I wanted to work in with a sort of acrobat's leotard look and merge them with a sort of modern street ninja vibe. The batarangs were modified mainly to have a sleeker, deadlier looking profile and the eyes took primary inspiration from the newer Batgirl design.
