that picture makes her look like a praying mantis. creepy stuff
i'd be lying to say i didn't enjoy the style when i was younger, and still feel it has it's own place in top cow. it's just that kind of crazy ass art. it gets old though, quick.
Yeah I have never been a big fan of overly stylized art like that. I also despise Tim Sale for the same reasons, although I know I am in a much smaller group in my distaste for him.
I guess what makes Liefeld so easy to poke fun of, is that he is so consistently bad with the same things. Can't draw feet. Insanely awkward, impossible body poses and contortions. Not to mention the ridiculous body proportions.
I am always weary about criticizing artists, because I draw worse now than I did when i was 6. I'm completely terrible and Liefeld can crap better drawings than me. However I guess as a comic fan I feel that when there are thousands of artists out there who are better, and unemployeed, they owe us better.
How did Marvel ever allow those to get published....
Better yet, how does he still currently get work?
The comic companies swear whatever book they put him on gets a sells bump. A few times the numbers agree, sometimes they don't but everyone one of the big companies is willing to take a chance simply on the controversy and people who will buy it to see the train wreck.
Just looking at that Captain America picture, I'm shocked anyone over the age of 10 would see that and say "not bad, lets use it". There's just so much wrong with it. His chest has more bulge than his actual crotch. It's like left part of his chest is ripping away from his body to create a second person or something.
I remember lurking the NGR section of 1Up.com and browsing their thread dedicated to pointing out the crap drawings of this guy. That thing quickly ballooned to 10+ pages in a day or so.
