Daredevil, the man without fear! Marvel universe classics style! This is my 2nd daredevil, the first daredevil I made was sold. When I got my hands on a dcuc wave 8 flash I knew the time had come to make another dd, this time, for my shelf. I loved the daredevil: guardian devil story by kevin smith & joe quesada and I really wanted make this dd as close to the way quesada drew him. The hardest part about this custom, besides finding time to work on it, was covering up the yellow on his boots. Mattel uses some thick paint. What I did for the parts that weren't red was give 'em a couple coats of citadel foundation red. The foundation line of paints are made specifically to be great base coats with good coverage. Then I went at him with model masters guards red. His little bit of flesh was painted with mm light flesh with a drop of citadel beastial brown mixed in. The mm light flesh is way too pale on it's own but a drop of brown added to 3 or 4 drops of mmlf makes a natural caucasian flesh tone. Recipe >
