Daredevil # 18 Cover. 2012. Ink(ed by Joe Rivera)
with digital color on Marvel board, 11 × 17.25″.
Daredevil #18 arrives in stores today, the first of 4 issues that center around a new foe, Coyote, that I helped to create and design. You can see a quick preview at CBR.
This reference was taken with my iMac's Photo Booth app. There's a feature that allows users to swap out backgrounds by taking a pic without the subject, then using that information to only reveal what has changed (i.e. the arrival of a guy with a rolled-up piece of paper). It doesn't work perfectly, but it was good enough for these 2 photos — one for each hand. I have since "splurged" and made 2 rolled-up pieces of paper. Insane, I know.

The digital composite stage incorporates my Sculptris Daredevil head, as well as a simple template that I was using to quickly lay in billy clubs. The divisions are meant to roughly line up with a single hand-width. This helped to keep the proportions consistent.
