Daredevil #3, Page 5. 2011.
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on Marvel board, 11 × 17.25″.
The Daredevil Crazy-Super-Awesome-Deluxe-Omnibus hits comic shops today, collecting DD 1-10.1, which (sadly) contains my entire run of 6 issues. This page is from issue 3 and features reference both lofty and (Google) earthly. First, the obvious allusion:
|Michelangelo would be flattered, I'm sure.|
And second, a view from the street, courtesy of Google. We're on W 24th Street, looking east at Madison Square Park (although the sky bridge I drew is on the opposite side of the park). I'm guessing the Klaw Sound Shadow found refuge in the Chase Bank on the corner. The SUV is from a Sketchup 3D model that I superimposed in the digital composite stage.

Check out the bottom panel in the blue-line print below. Aside from digital borders, I ink geometric shapes in Photoshop. Rivera Secretssssssss: my Dad hates inking circles.

Sometimes I would make minor digital edits, post-inks — often because I forgot something, but also because I think in ink. There are some decisions that I can't make until I see the stark contrast of black on white.
