Daredevil Costume Concept Art For Netflix
Check out a piece of Daredevil concept art revealed for the Marvel Netflix series.
Artist Ryan Meinerding is responsible for the following rendition of Charlie Cox's look in the show.
“Joe Quesada got in touch and asked if I could help out,” Meinerding told Marvel.com. “Our whole team actually did designs, [including] Rodney Fuentebella, Andy Park, Jackson Sze, Josh Nizzi, and Anthony Francisco. I think we all did a round of designs as fast as we could, and they settled on one of mine. Beyond that, we did our normal process of modeling the head and the cowl [in] 3D with Josh Herman, and then I was involved throughout the costume creation process.”
Meinerding went on to explain creating the look isn't that easy of a task.
“One of the most interesting things about Daredevil, that I hadn’t fully appreciated before I started working on the character, is that I think that head is one of the most difficult heads to design for a live action context,” Meinerding offered. “Because if you have a mask like Captain America’s, it’s difficult in it’s own ways, but you still have the actor’s eyes coming through. So you get performance, you get a sense of who they are, of their expression, of what they’re doing. [As a result] the bottom half of the face matches the top half, in terms of expression. With Daredevil, because half of his face has to be covered and has its own expression and the actor’s face is going to be doing something else, it’s actually a very difficult challenge to come up with something up top that’s not going to bump with something down below.”
"Daredevil" is currently on Netflix with all 13 episodes; Season 2 is being developed and will be released next year.
