Daredevil

26 April, 2016 | Posted in Sketches

Daredevil was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist Bill Everett, a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character debuted in Marvel Comics’ Daredevil #1 (April 1964).

Abandoned by his mother, Matt Murdock was raised by his father, boxer “Battling Jack” Murdock, in Hell’s Kitchen. Realizing that rules were needed to prevent people from behaving badly, young Matt decided to study law. However, when he saved a man from an oncoming truck, it spilled a radioactive cargo that rendered Matt blind while enhancing his remaining senses. Under the harsh tutelage of blind martial arts master Stick, Matt mastered his heightened senses and became a formidable fighter.

Although the character is blind, his remaining four senses function with superhuman accuracy and sensitivity, giving him abilities far beyond the limits of a sighted person. Few characters know that the hero cannot see. Also he has developed a radar sense, which is similar to echolocation.

I used pencil to lay down the rough outlines and gel pen to ink.
