Daisy and Violet - X-Girls by JKLind Daisy and Violet - X-Girls by JKLind

A recent commission from :iconhatescomputers:, and a fun one at that.

 

The original request was simple - Violet as Jubilee, and Daisy as the movie version of Mystique.  That does make sense, since Daisy would likely only know the character from the films, but I thought it'd be fun to turn the tables.  Mostly because Daisy would never "dress" as a nude character when hanging out with her underage cousin (if ever), but also in small part because I didn't want to draw all those scales.  :P

There's something hilarious about the fact that, it used to be that when parents wouldn't let their kids have comic books, the usual reason was "Comic books are bad". Now it's very plausible that the parent has a grudge against the writers for butchering his/her favorite characters XD

Whoops . . . That wouldn't solve the scale-drawing situation.

This man, though strict, is wise; to see the tragedy that we wrought by Mr. Morrision would scar any youngleng's perception of good comic books.

It's just that plot is a bit of a lucid term this era for comic books, and "cheese cake" is served regularly over a well made character.

Insanity is no excuse for not making well made material; just look at Mel Gibson.

Not to mention the cost of the body paint needed to cover all of that.

Yeah, this works well and the conversation is both funny and realistic. On a side note I had found a picture of a young woman who was about 4 ft tall and had breasts twice the size of Daisy's and no photoshopping. It just shows what a wide spectrum of body shapes there are.

I've had my fair share of conversations, where friends would be shocked at something I "should" know, but didn't...

And one of these days - maybe if I start doing conventions - I may meet Daisy's real-life body-double.  And then my head will explode.  :)

I don't keep up with the comics myself, though I know plenty of other useless stuff. There are Daisy look a likes out there it's just much less common then the average sized woman. To me there is no one correct size , they all have millions of years of evolution behind them . Big girls, little ones, middle sized it's all good.

True story: a couple years back I expressed my opinion of morrison to a coworker - that he's overrated, and that too often his "big ideas" don't go anywhere.  The guy high-fived and thanked me, so I guess I'm not alone in thinking that.  :)

I also wanted to put in a dig at Chuck Austen, but who remembers him?

I have more of a bone to pick with Rob Liefeld
I am a big fan of Image comics but Liefeld is not someone I like at all

I am also tired of DC and Marvel, every time I get into a certain comic storyline, they re-boot their entire universe and start over so it is like nothing happened or it did but everything new contradicts everything else.
Prior to the "New 52", I was really into Green Lantern and they were going in strange but interesting directions with White Lanterns and the living dead and Dove and then suddenly "New 52", yeah...all that stuff you liked? forget about it!

Also, the constant attempt to keep getting younger and younger readers into Marvel and DC while continuing to alienate the current demographic. It bothers me.

I'll tive Rob some credit - he's achieved and maintained a level of success that many artists can only dream of.  Plus i hear he's a real cool guy.  That said, his art often hurts my eyes.

My question is how has he done so?
I am a large fan of Arthur Adams, Frank Cho and Chris Bachalo.

I suppose.
I feel like you're right, but he seemed to ride the wave that was the appearance of Image comics.

Again, right place and time.  He was young enough that forming Image with the rest of the industry's top talent may not have been much of a career risk, and it paid off.

A different example might be J.S.Campbell - as far as I've seen, the guy got his start on Gen13, then did Danger Girl, and has been riding its wave of success ever since.  Right place and time, but also a ton of talent.  :)
