That basically sums up Liefield. For better or for worse, his original (if garish and stupid) style defined the industry

Liefeld and Jim Lee and Todd McFarlane are all the result of a generation of comic artists who learned to draw anatomy from other comic artists, rather than studying actual anatomy.

Thus they became almost completely divorced from the idea of what people actually looked like in real life.
>>
>>77679520
If you believe he isn't you're objectively wrong. Almost no one in the comics industry can draw anymore.

Jim Lee was the one that defined the 90s style. Liefeld was the poor man's Lee back in those days.

I agree with Rob that Alex Ross is an bad comic artist. He's a great painter and most of his covers are gorgeous, but his interiors are awful. I'd rather read Youngblood
>>
>>77679470
No he is not.

Liefeld (and Death's Head 2) embody all that was shit about 90s comics.

I don't know. His style is pretty shit if you're doing an ongoing, but look at stuff like Kingdom Come. One-shots like that with an "epic" feel to them tend to benefit from Ross in my opinion. I mean, who else can honestly make you believe that Superman is a god the way he can?
>>
>>77680961
I hate all of it, characters look like your friend's parents wearing costumes. He over uses the low angle to make it so your always looking up at the characters, like they're your parents or divine

I have no interest in Superman as a god, I prefer the farmboy
>>
>>77680961
I don't get god from his stuff, I get portraiture with lots of glare. I agree with the other anon, his stuff is incredibly stiff and lifeless and I don't like it at all for interior art.
>>
>>77679557
Liefeld sounds like a bro. Would chill with.
Heard he had one of the swords from Conan the Barbarian.
>>
>>77680961
I'm in a vocal minority but I agree there. Kingdom Come was a good interior.
>>
>>77681147
Yeah, pretty sure it was the first thing he did with the Image money. He was the youngest of the bunch and the only one without a family, so his money went to nothing but indulging how much of a nerd he was.

His original comic art collection used to be massive because he was buying it up just before people started putting real value on it
>>
>>77680961
>>77681164
Same, I thought it worked perfectly. It wouldn't have been the same in anyone else's style.
>>
>>77681222
Yeah he also used to have the George Perez pages for that unreleased JLA/Avengers crossover (the one from the 80's).

Actually Liefeld has improved a ton in recent years. He's not really great or anything, he's about average and he's a nice guy anyway. I think most of the hate for him comes from people that don't really read a lot of comics but read some Top 10 list and suddenly just hate him and everything he does.
>>
>>77681034
>I have no interest in Superman as a god, I prefer the farmboy

Ross does all that shit.

You gotta be careful with the hipster viewpoints though. You keep parroting what you read on /co/ like it's your actual opinion and your taste will go from "shit" to "incredibly shit" in no time.
>>
He could be much worse.
>>
>>77682970
Mate, calm down, we're only talking about A-List Big Two superhero comics. Totally inconsequential. The stakes are too low for that kind of rhetoric.

Your opinions don't make you any better or worse than anybody else, same as if you were having an argument over some McMeal from McDonald's.
>>
>>77679453
He created the second and third most succesful xmen characters to have solo runs

>equates a superhero comic from marvel or dc to mdconalds food

Sweet lord. You are a hipster.
>>
>>77683102
It's true though, Marvel and DC are the McDonald's and Burger King of comics.

And I'm so hipster that I don't automatically assume that I'm superior to anybody who holds opinions that are different from mine. Give it a try sometime.
>>
>>77680961
It's too stiff, it doesn't work for sequential art. He makes good covers and lots of his panels look great on their own. When the characters don't look like 46 year old cosplayers, that is

Yeah my opinion is that Alex Ross is garbage
>>
>>77683173
Why do I feel like you're under 21 years old and have never actually read Kingdom Come?
>>
>>77683211
It's all relative. Maybe someday someone will assume that you haven't read 8House and they'll pass judgment on you.
>>
>>77683211
I'm over 21 and yes I've read it. What more do you want? I don't think it's a good comic
>>
>all this ross hate

It's always felt like contrarianism to me. The guy does beautiful work.
>>
>>77683660
As said before, he just doesn't do good 'motion'. Sure, he can do great heroic poses, and your usual punches, or whatever. On the other hand, Ross sucks from panel to panel motion. Sequential stuff. It's stale. Also, all his characters have the same feeling to them. Much like Liefeld's.

'improved' huh.

-sword hilt is embedded in his wrist, said hilt is not lined up with the rest of the blade.

-terrible things are happening with the perspectives on that horse.

No, there is not a single artist working today that I can think of that is worse than Liefeld, except MABYE, this one artist I recall on Sensation Comics - Wonder Woman...

>did this guy do anything notably bad?
Literally 99% of every single thing he has ever drawn is bad, name someone worse besides - >>77687015

Heah people like Ramos are fucking bad but every once and a while he will do a good looking Hobgoblin or something and he has ok expressions, Liefeld has never done ANYTHING of value in memory.

You just don't get neo-retro modern primitivism. It evokes a primal art form lost to us in the decadence of the current cultural jungian thoughtwell. Basic yet, stirring forms that focus on motion and body that has been lost in this age of ultra realism or modern progressivism for the sake of modern progressivism. Liefeld's work is the greatest, most daring, yet still cleaving truest to human artistic spirit, in the field, both at his peak and now.

Position of the neck and collarbones doesn't line up. The issue is that the top of Cap's torso is drawn in almost-profile, while the rest is drawn in 3/4 view.

He's better than an artist; he's a genius. That's not some crude photostyle picture of Cap, it's a map of Cap.
