Daredevil #1 Sample

These pages were hard. And it wasn't the acrobatic nature of Daredevil or the crazy angles - it was the storytelling. It's a great script by Mark Waid - but trying to find a way to keep three pages of jumping around visually varied and interesting while still keeping a sense of location was a bit tricky.

I also took some risks with these pages (see page 2), but I felt they were justified in the storytelling. I wasn't doing tricks for tricks' sake. With Daredevil and the Spot you have sonar, circular motiffs, etc. I wanted to play with that.

Anyways, very tough (I drew and redrew several panels over and over), but very fun.

Again, here are my pencils. Did layouts digitally, then pencilled the remainder by hand.
