Well, here it is. Two weeks in the making (in two-to-five minute bursts). My perspective is a little wonky but, in my defense, I really only had room for the paper on my new desk and not much room for even the smallest of rulers. Still, it is a poor craftsman that blames his tools so I’ll own it.
I tried to throw a few curves at myself this time. Often, I get frustrated and resort to straight-on shots of my subject. This time, I "dared" myself to do something a little bit different. Not much but just out of my comfort zone. Wormseye view. Underlighting. Heavy backgrounds. It’s not my best drawing but I’m happy that I did it. I’d actually tried several passes at a different character in a much different setting then gave up and, for some reason, felt the need to draw Daredevil. Gotta run with the inspirations when they come. Because they don’t come often.
I hope you like the drawing. That’s all I’ve got time for. I am getting KILLED at work this month.
