18" x 24" illo of Daredevil and several villains, the details are:

- Please draw a night scene with an Eisner-like effect of text as buildings/background elements. Include the following text in the background:

"The Man Without Fear"

Feel free to use buildings, water towers, signs, etc. to create the effect

Include the following villains:

- Bullseye
- The Jester
- The Cobra
- Mr Hyde

Please draw a large central image of Daredevil with the villains creeping up on him from all sides.

Please leave a half inch border for framing

Slight glitch, where the scans wouldn't line up properly, down by DD's left foot. NOT on the original, obviously!

Wow! I love this one. There haven't been many Daredevil commissions that I recall, so it's good to see him and some of his foes. And the angle of the scene is dizzying. JB, I think you might be the best artist in comics when it comes to drawing scenes like that, high up and vertigo-inducing. There have been several commissions and panels in comicsThat come to mind where you've done that and the composition is amazing in those situations! 

I love the Eisner words too.

Another amazing piece! I really like your Daredevil, JB. It would be fun to see your take on his book.

AGH! So jealous. As Aaron said, there haven't been many DD commissions. I'd love to own this one.

It took me a minute to find the word "Fear" in the background. Very cleverly done and a great commission!

Very nice, JB. Love the way you have "Man Without Fear" set in the commission.

I love drawing DD but I hate drawing his DD symbol.

Awesome piece, loved the choice of highlights for contrast! Great touch!!!

Who wouldn't buy a comic book with that on the cover?

Oh, yeah, DD has been set upon by multiple badguys in the past. And some with considerably more oomph than these guys!

Excellent! Really like the action in this, and how you've incorporated "Man without fear" into the image.

Great commission, JB... would you have enjoyed a run on DD's book?

I wonder what that would've turned out like...

-C!

Awesome piece, JB.  The text is a great idea.  It blends in really well.

Did you decide to leave off the word "The"?  I don't see it.
