Not feeling it to be honest. The upper torso is twice the size of his legs! Looks like, you know, a bad drawing! :o

Fair enough. I've been drawing comics for over 30 years, and as with most I have stylistic tics that are not to everybody's taste. I'm not shooting for real as I personally like a level of stylization in both the art I appreciate and the art I draw. You have a good eye though. The proportions you pick out as not being accurate are the ones I intentionally exaggerated. Cheers!

I felt obliged to reply once more, since you were kind enough to check my humble scribbles after my rather blunt comment. Since you get so many positive, non-critical comments, I figured my critique would go unnoticed. I do still stand by my post, but perhaps I should have said something positive also. After all, your Death's Head II character is one of my all time favorites and your art generally is very good. So what I should have perhaps added on my original post was that even though I think the proportions are "bad" even by exaggerated superhero standards, the background is glorious! I assume you did every dot with a a white out pencil or something? Some artists might leave all that detailing to the colorist.

It's a constant struggle, and frankly I rarely like my figures - I'm my own worst critic so it's no surprise when people have criticisms. But we try, and we grow. Some people seem to like it - which is perhaps MORE surprising to me!

Regarding the BG. All hand drawn, either tiny circles or white dots painted on with a brush.

Cheers! And enjoyed your gallery. :-)

I hope Morrison’s going to cut loose on this series!

Channeling Virgil Finlay there in the background, are you? Well done.

The use of dots and patterns is almost like Australian Aboriginal art. Amazing.

You are not the first to say this! Well spotted. :-)

I can't wait to see what you and Grant Morrison will be doing! Will you be focusing Hal Jordan only, or Will Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz be along for the ride?
