Daring's Old Pastime by NMartinez
Daring's Old Pastime
*UPDATE* BEHIND THE SCENES

This was a collar between me and my pal, Ric Magundayao :iconric-m:

Pencils: Me :iconnmartinez:

Coloring: Ric 

    This is a little headcanon of mine, depicting an origin/inspiration for Daring Do. Similar to “Read It and Weep," she broke her leg very badly during rock-climbing right when summer was beginning. A large cast was put on and she did not like being anchored by it the rest of the summer. One day, she took notice of her relative’s collection of Donald Duck/ Uncle Scrooge comics. Skeptical at first, she thumbed through and noticed the appeal of the stories. She quickly became glued to the adventure and humor of the stories, especially of those of one Scrooge McDuck cruising the world for priceless treasures. This got her throughout he whole season, right up to her leg being fully healed. She later learned that the stories and art of the comics were by the legendary Carl Barks, “The Good Duck Artist.” Her newfound love of his stories would be instrumental in inspiring her to be a treasure hunter herself.

    For the setting, I thought of Daring Do coming from a wealthy background or at least well-off enough to go traveling. She would already have a fascination for far-off places by then.

    In general, I thought this was a good way to bring up such underrated and classic gems of comic history and mix it with another thing I enjoy. The Barks stories were what also inspired George Lucas and Steven Spielberg for the Indiana Jones franchise, and Daring Do's very "Indy"-like anyway. :)

    Thank you, Ric once again for helping me get this ambitious collab off the ground.

I want to ask you something regarding your old 2009 sketch of Gladstone Gander. You got some specific way of starting the basic drawing? Because I myself always end up with Gladstone having weird eyes and long or short legs. I mean, if you see my Gladstone (last deviation), you'll get what I mean. Give me a hint because I can see your sketches rock :thumbsup::D

I don't mean to brag, but your artwork is really incredible. That's just a slice of why you're one of my favorite artists.
