Daredevil #9 Cover. 2011. Ink(ed by Joe Rivera)
on Marvel board with digital color, 11 × 17.25″.

Daredevil #9 hits shelves Wednesday, February 15th. This is the first of 2 issues pitting our horned hero against the Mole Man in a subterranean adventure of Stygian depths. I'll be taking a blogging break next week as I (along with my paw) finish up issue 10. Here's a preview from IGN.

Digital Layout

Sculptris Maquettes

This is one of the first all-digital layouts created with my Cintiq. I now go into much greater detail—tight enough to ink in some instances. The digital workflow allows for easier integration of reference, so I will often incorporate  everything from Sculptris maquettes (seen above) to Photobooth images taken on the fly.

  1. Amazing stuff! I can't wait for this one. :) It's always nice to see the steps along the way to get to the beautiful scenes in the finished product.

    1. Thanks, Christine! I'll be sharing more after the issue hits stands. I should be doing 3 issues in a row after this, but I'm not sure of the numbering yet.

  2. This is a beautiful page; you can see the magic you bring to the comic book form again.
