I don’t quite understand this.
Oh great this cover is back with the boobs that look like they’re trying to fly up and off Emma and Jean’s chests, and Logan’s bicep that looks ready to explode. Such wonderful anatomy.
OH MAN LIEFELD why doesn’t he like waists? WHY DOES HE THINK POUCH BELTS CAN REPLACE WAISTS? I have so many questions for that dude about anatomy and how it works.
Phil Noto being alive just makes me thankful in general. He’s my absolute favorite comic book artist.
they are all bad
Hey look she actually kind of has hips! Unfortunately despite that exciting change of pace, her neck is doing something weird, her leg seems to have been amputated mid thigh, and her chest is defying all logic.
I can’t speak for Ava, well I can but my my version of Ava only says things like “Wow Joan is a gift from the heavens which deity must I thank for her existence?”
My personal favorites are Phil Noto, Olivier Coipel, and Terry Dodson. I always feel like I should include Chris Bachalo but I have grown less fond of him. I think his best stuff was during the End Of Greys arc in Uncanny X-Men a few years back.
Clay Mann is an honorable mention, Jim Cheung, Mike Choi, and Stuart Immonen as well. David LaFuente Garcia did the art for the Hellcat mini a couple years ago and I really liked that a lot. David Marquez did an All New X-Men arc a few months back and while I didn’t love his art before that, he drew that arc beautifully.
Apparently. Getting into a fight about what counts as tracing and what doesn’t is pretty much the least appealing thing to happen on this blog.
there are essays that are linked on the ethical and moral repercussions of hiring people such as land, who is one of the worst offenders for promoting misogyny via his inaccurate and hypersexualised poses and anatomies
and i just don’t care about what you have to say
in any way, shape or form
sidenote: i don’t run this blog anymore and it is mostly run by user submissions and reblogs, and considering how much anon hate i get in my inbox every second day or so, you can’t be surprised that i’ve stopped giving a damn about what people on anon have to say
you want the ””quality”” of this blog to go up? submit your own findings and essays
i literally don’t care
you stay on your high horse, my dear, one day you’ll realise it’s an ass and so are you
His art style has drastically changed over the years actually. If you read his old Birds Of Prey stuff his art was actually pretty good, though he had a habit of tracing other artists back then which is a huge no-no.
Like really how did he think he’d get away with this? (Check out the artist swipe tag for more examples)
I honestly prefer him tracing porn than him stealing from other artists.
At least the porn tracing is good for a laugh.
But the style back in Birds Of Prey over all was way more pleasing. Unfortunately in an industry that seems to believe their only customers are young boys the idea that sex sells is a popular one and Greg Land’s work over the years has changed to reflect that. He didn’t stop improving his art, it’s just that what he considers improving most of us consider a horrible backslide. But eh what can you do? He’s the one with the huge career and the two of us running this blog are just poor college kids who see his name on a comic cover and cringe.
I can’t speak for Ava, if I did she’d be saying something like “man isn’t Joan simply glorious all the time?”
Personally I don’t mind Frank Cho’s art. I don’t love it, it’s nowhere near my list of favorites. It falls into that range of art I don’t love but doesn’t hinder the story in the comic for me.
