Cover I recently completed for Midtown Comics, as a variant for Chaos! #1 through Dynamite entertainment. purgatori was always one of my favorite characters, and its cool that i will be given so many chances to draw her soon.
why are people so common? or fairies? or angels? or anything with wings for that matter? because artists draw what they feel like doing or think looks cool. often times, there is almost no forethought to what comes out, and we lose ourselves a bit in it.
the bigger thing here is that question you asked. its moot, artists will draw whatever they think looks cool.
I guess that, after all the decades, and all of the supposed intellectual advancement of comics as art/literature, it is still none-the-less true that comics appeal primarily to 15 year old pubescent boys.
That would at least explain your use of a physical archetype that only 15 year old boys find appealing.
Will they ever create a comic heroine that has a body a grown man would find appealing???
I made a living as a creative artist, kitten. So do you. You draw what makes you money, and you do that very well. I did not mean to cast your work, in and of itself, in a negative light.
It is true, none-the-less, that comics, women's fashion magazines, many,many TV shows, and more, portray an archetype feminine ideal that 99% of the women in the world cannot achieve without damaging their health, and in many cases endangering their lives.
Its been true since the 60's, when Twiggy came onto the scene, and it has been true ever since.
well lots of artists stylize women, its not about body types really. its just art, anything past that is wasted breath in stressing points and opinions and arguments. just rather...stupid as far as im concerned. photos and photoshopping models is a different matter, and has nothing to do with art and taste.
There is a difference between an illustrated image and an altered photo. And no matter my feelings (those of a man who has observed the way Hollywood and New York, mostly, have screwed around with how women are portrayed in mass media), I remain a big fan of yours.
Your latest posted piece is pretty amazing. Are the people that employ you at least acknowledging how much you are bringing to the table?
