The picture from the wanted poster in colorful glory! Keep in mind these are truly exaggerated versions of my character and her fellow adventurers.

It’s best to say this is more like “Jubell’s Take on Rob Liefeld” than really all that close to his style (although I combed this stuff trying to really understand his style. In hindsight, his love and varied pouches left me in awe. Like…all KINDS of pouches. Unnecessary, but totally an aficionado).

Oh, Rob Liefeld loved his big arms. In fact, I think the only time he drew skinny guys was in the 80's and that's because they were teens. But when I was studying his style he seems to always make that one distinction - Grown men have outrageous muscles and Teen Guys have very little. I never see average bodies in his work.

So it was interesting trying to mimic that style.

in his days in Image he also known making "short cuts" covering the arm with gaunlet and such and small nose.

OMG, lol, I tried to make the noses small but sometimes he made them so small they'd be scary! haha

And he did love his gauntlets and gloves all kinds of things. I'm surprised that he still does some of those things.

The nose thing was much joke about his art most of the time and the shortcut he use for gaunlets not showing the arms.

He improved but still gets back to them time to time. I hope he lessen his "creating new ocs" thanfocus on one story first, that got him a bit issue with Image way back :(
