World On Fire

Daredevil has been my favorite superhero since the sixth grade. Ironically, I rarely draw him. That maybe because of his costume appearing so plain and never being able to make him look “right”. I’ve found that it’s best to draw Daredevil by barely drawing him at all. Focus on my shadows representing what you don’t see. And that’s what I did with this piece. I’m not a background guy, so I figured this was a good excuse to work on that.

Once I called it quits I decided to do a simple animation of Daredevil’s “Radar-sense” superpower as it’s been portrayed in the classic comics. I’m not thrilled with my drawing but I learned a little more about backgrounds , halftone patterns, and making your shadows do the detail work for you. When drawing difficult subjects, it’s best to tackle them just like Daredevil himself: Without fear!

Time spent: Around 6 hours. But I can spend all day with the Ninja Turtles.

Took an idea I had of a Mega Man Blueprint piece I sold a couple years back and applied it to my favorite sewer dwelling teenage pizza eaters. You can now get a print of this at my store! If I ever have the energy (or time most likely) I’d love to do this for each brother! And judging from my last 3 pieces “puke green” as a background is a trend.
