“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

MURDOCK_commission

[9 x 12" - blue pencil, brush & technical pen, COPIC marker on 300lb bristol board]



I'm a few commissions behind and I'm finally getting to them now. Thanks for your patience, everyone who I owe an image to. This one's for you, Richard. I appreciate your waiting.

So, yeah - Daredevil. I watched this gem of a movie the other night; it was so bad it came back around to 'good' again. I swear. Best part? When, after each and every time he killed or maimed someone, Colin Farrell (as the villain 'BULLSEYE') would flamboyantly and moronically point to the scar on his forehead. As if to say, "Yeeeessss. I killed him. Because it is I, Bullseye (points at the scar on his forehead), the never-miss... (pause for dramatic effect)...assassin."

Just..man, it was bad.

Oh man, well this commission is great! Wanted to get a DD from you at Heroes Con but your list was full. One of these days... fingers crossed!

this and the last few posts have been ridiculously AWESOME.

Fantastic! Yeah...the movie was pretty bad. Marvel has had pretty good luck bringing their characters to the screen. Bummer that DD was such a dud. The directors cut dvd is considerably better, but that's not saying all that much.

LOL agreed!! And it's a shame, because there's pretty good material in the Daredevil history to make a good movie. Or at least an 80's good movie.
