The incredibly intricate art of Justin Fairfield.
THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE, 1974.
So everyone is shitting on milo manara alternate cover like it’s some anatomical abortion ignoring Greg Lands quagmire of body parts.
Whose to blame for this cover.
1) Editors for letting it go through.
2) Colorist for just making a bad drawing worse. I fixed the weird random boob shape as it was the biggest problem with the color. The rest is boring but passable.
3) Greg Land.
Issues at hand are. Bad hands. Fear of hiding limbs\shapes behind other shapes. Flat arm having no shape or depth. Upper torso very maculine and seemingly too big. Various non descript sausage limbs. Tendon pit (comic book artists love overdoing the neck tendons down to the clavicle, it’s annoying but I get why it’s attractive to draw). Limb size issues fucking everywhere. Shin too short. Feet too big. Yaddah.
Listen I get it everyone has a style and shit but….In what world is a 2 bit porn artist able to fucking dramatically correct a MARVEL COMIC BOOK ARTIST COVER.The attack on the Milo covernjust comes off as slut shaming. HOW DARE AN EROTIC ARTIST DRAW AMERICAN COMIC COVERS. HOW SHAMEFUL.
