Reference Material

Evel Knievel was THE dare devil in the 70's...he was HUGE...the thing we gotta remember about the design of this guy is that even though hes an old man now...he still has to have some of that rock star flair that he had in his prime...even though Evil Stevil is old, he still thinks he's the world famous dare devil he once was, which will cross over into the way he looks...case and pint..check out these pictures...

Evel Knievel THEN...



Evel Knievel NOW...
(notice the blue cowboy boots...haha)


This guy is OLD, but he still maintaines that "badass" vibe...


below are two pictures from the recent movie Hot Rod...for some costume ideas...pretty standard costume for a dare devil...we should have some fun with it..but the red white and blue, stars and stripes are a definate for a clear visual read...


Below are a couple pictures of Lance Murdoch, the dare devil character featured in The Simpsons





Just some stuff to get everyone thinking...I'm sure everyone's done research of their own. Definately excited to see everyones concept designs.

Keep up the great work guys~
I think the recent movie from the past year Ghost Rider has some good references too.. in the beginning shows the main character doing one of those really long death defying jumps~
