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!
