Daredevil -- Project: Rooftop

Good to be back and blogging again. I thought I'd share what I did for Project Rooftop's Fan Art Fridays.

They were asking for redesigns of the man without fear and I couldn't pass it up.  Let me preface this by saying that DD has one of the best costume designs in all of comics, but when I was posed with the question of how I would reimagine Daredevil, I had to go for it. My goal was to streamline the current costume and add some practicality.  So here's a breakdown...

  • DD's Billyclub is now located on his back for easier access
  •  Chest and shoulders are slightly armored for those pesky shuriken and other projectiles
  • DD's gloves now have a a couple of fingers and his thumb exposed for easier use of heightened touch
  • His mask now covers his entire face for a blind-justice motif
  • His big boots are gone and replaced by some sleek parkour shoes 
  • Larger and redesigned DD logo
I had a lot of fun with this and would love to hear what you think. And if you'd like to check out the other work that was submitted click here.

Happy drawing,
