Now having defined the concept of the shoe, the next step is to link the concept to ideas in a script. The challenge is to design the shoe or boot of the Daredevil character, and perhaps also the costumes, and represent the ideas on a storyboard.

Add me onto the list of entertained bystanders. I know nothing of footwear design, but am enjoying all the renders and energy into the project. Will all of this exploration culminate in a final design or collection or something?

Welcome Eddie. Thank you for contributing to this project. Honestly, I do not know what I'm doing. At first, I thought this thing to be designer of shoes was a simple thing, and that anyone with basic skills could work as a freelancer. But I've noticed that it is very difficult and requires a lot of knowledge, experience and discipline. But that did not stop me, to express concepts inspiration that I think could be attractive in fashion and shoe industry. At first, I wanted to find an organic alternative for this adidas brand, which is highlighting in their products, and find a conclusion for the brand to evolve into the concepts of nature and the arts. But I was absorbed and lost myself in my own traps of ideas. And this project has no direction, it's just a very personal inspirations. And, as motivated by some friends that I have gotten on Coroflot. For example, I have a mexican follower, and is an honor for me. A professional as him like my work, is a person who has obtained an internship in Germany, for Adidas. These are small things that motivated me to inspire more designers.

I think we should have fun with the things we do, but seriously fun. I am happy doing things freely, I get my dose of endorphins. In the real world, very few people can afford to do the things they really think. But doing a good render of a product, is the closest I can get to be that. It is likely that this draft Daredevil is the last project, and perhaps a couple of inspirations for Jordan Brand. But I will enjoy making them and straining to the fullest. I thought about making a final design, a hybrid that contains all the attributes of the designs I've done. A Frankenstein. It would be a crazy thing. The collection of designs are already on Coroflot. Thank you.

Trying to avoid the fading of some ideas for characters. A visceral Daredevil. Emotional. Artist. Very violent. Passionate. I'm very focused on the powerful interpretation of Rutger Hauer in the role of replicant in the Blade Runner movie. A model of Matt Murdock with bipolar disorder. Reflect the impotence of a lawyer against a mass of impunity. Acts of rampant cynicism. Masks. Perhaps drugs. Rituals of violence and choreographed confrontations where catharsis is the goal.

Drawing the face of daredevil, red hair of Matt Murdock first, one by one. I was thinking it would be good idea, that the natural tone of Matt hair is blonde, and that red hair look is part of a personification of his alter ego.

Well, the face of Matt Murdock is finished. Start to draw the costume in this same illustration. It was difficult to make an illustration from a very small picture in black and white with very few details. I had to improvise some lights. I wish I did not spoil the physical traits of Adam Cooper. After making a difficult casting, I chose the dancer and actor Adam Cooper to focus on his physical characteristics, and personality, to build the character of Matt Murdock. For me, he is the best bet to play Daredevil. When I saw his performance in the film Billy Elliot, I became convinced that he is a super hero. I've been visualizing in my mind, some choreographed scenes, and is very good, that an actor can perform in difficult scenes without the need of a stunt man.
