    Get that shit out of my thread. Put it in Bitching.

    Well, now I know what I'm getting mounted on my wall this Christmas...

    Edit: In all honesty, Land could write a great tutorial for the aspiring penciller...
    On how to click the lasso, rect select and rotate buttons in Photoshop.

    Man that makes me extra mad

    Thing is one of the best characters and I love his design and how every artist draws him slightly differently

    for reference the best Thing is Stuart Immonen

    Awww yeah

    much respect for Stuart Immonen

    dude is a fantastic artist

  • MunchMunch Registered User regular
    Yeah, Thing's so much fun to draw, I can't imagine why you'd half-ass it.

  • CrimsondudeCrimsondude Registered User regular
    I hate you all for not taking this to the Bitching Thread.

  • MunchMunch Registered User regular
    Fine.

    I'm really digging this cover, from Image's Planetoid.

    Simple, design-y covers win me over every time.

    I have been away from comics, but I feel Land is looked down upon? I do however, think this Man-Thing looks pretty neat:

    It's kind of the same thing that made me like Land a little eight months back. The end product overall looks really nice in some respects with nice clean lines and gorgeous colouring. What you have to understand is that often that's nothing to do with Land: he does the pencil art, and other people ink it and colour it. Pretty reflections on Cyclops' visor or whatever aren't his responsibility.

    What you do begin to understand is that Land traces everything. There's tons of comparative proofs out there. Very little of his pencilling is more than drawing an outline over a piece of film stock or another artist's work. He reuses the same pieces again and again, to the point where I was reading the issue of Uncanny X-Men from May and noticing the same faces he had used in an Uncanny issue four months previous.

    Most problematically, he uses porn a ton for tracing, especially for women; and only makes the barest effort to cover it up. It's horrifically objectifying, and is possibly the worst thing going for women in comics.

    So, that Man-Thing, although it works well, was probably copied whole or part from something and then gussied up.

    Man-Thing shouldn't be gleaming.

    Max Huffman and Dylan Todd's D-Man 2099.

    yes yes yes

    this is what I want

    Which issues have D-man in them? I want to get familiar with the best Avenger.

    Which issues have D-man in them? I want to get familiar with the best Avenger.

    He's in quite a few Captain America issues from the 80's, around the 330-350 range (he first shows up in Cap 328 as D-Man). He went from sidekick to homeless hero who protected the weak:

    And then Bendis just made him plain crazy:

    I hate than Bendis panel of D-Man. It's making a total joke of the D-Man story from the Pulse, one of the best comics I've read dealing with mental illness. I know they were both written by Bendis, but the Avenger's appearances of D-Man just seem mean spirited after The Pulse.

    Anyways, here's a cooler D-Man scene:

    Also Hawkeye hit Iron Man with a watermelon seed!
    And Ant-Man is bringing a plate of food to the anthill, man the background is loaded in this.

    I always liked D-Man as a tramp superhero

    everyone kind of laughed at him but they guys like Cap and Jarvis, who know heroism when they see it, respect him greatly

  • Centipede DamascusCentipede Damascus Registered User regular
    D-Man really is the best.

  • CrimsondudeCrimsondude Registered User regular
    Holy cow. That Inhumans piece is amazing.

  • DouglasDangerDouglasDanger PennsylvaniaRegistered User regular
    yeah, that inhumans panel is great. who is the guy with eight arms? who are the inhumans fighting there? i am interested.

  • CrimsondudeCrimsondude Registered User regular
    Deviants, probably.

    Just love everything about this page.

    i haven't been reading UC USM, but I thought Miles was a little kid, like Damian Wayne's age. Did I misunderstand something?

  • AntimatterAntimatter Devo Was Right Gates of SteelRegistered User regular
    Miles is like 13, I think

    Damian's like 8

    Miles is a 13 year old

    hence why Peter is like, twice his size

  • DouglasDangerDouglasDanger PennsylvaniaRegistered User regular
    that is some great art, and i love the web line as a distraction to set up that kick

  • MunchMunch Registered User regular
    I think those first four panels, are a particularly good example of how to slow time down in a comic.

    It's a hard trick to pull off, but Pichelli did it well there.

  • DouglasDangerDouglasDanger PennsylvaniaRegistered User regular
    i sort of wish that panel with miles's face did the old half mask thing from the 60s

    yesssssssssss

  • EtchwartsEtchwarts Eyes Up Registered User regular
    That half mask thing is awesome, yeah.

    It's a brilliant way to show off, say, monologues.

  • HenslerHensler Registered User regular
    I wish after Spider-Men is over Miles could get some sort of transdimensional communicator and Pete could keep training him to be a better Spider-Man, teach him everything he wish someone had taught him back then. I just really like the idea of Pete with a sidekick and as a mentor figure - I thought having him be a high school teacher was also a great turn for the character.

    Speaking of that, here's Blue Beetle, by Ming Doyle.

    Jaime is a character that a lot of artists seem to struggle with drawing, but I love Doyle's take. There's an organic quality to the way she draws the armor, that really works.
