COMIC ART CORRECTIONS: Hips Don't Lie: The Problem... →
comicartcorrections: The comic industry has serious issues with women’s hips. Of all the parts of the anatomy that comic artists get wrong, this one is the big one. It’s huge. […] Holy crap on a stick THIS. So much this! Hips are HARD. I didn’t realize how much trouble I had with them before taking my life drawing classes. It took lots of unlearning, lots of drawings, looking at...
donttypeangry asked: Hey, just wanted to say that your blog is awesome! I also started a blog up, and I think, together, we might get through half of the shitty comic art out there by the time we're ninety.

Anonymous asked: I'm curious, since I don't draw and have never worked in the comics or animation industry - is it standard to get feedback on artwork, whether for covers or actual comics pages? I just feel like some of these errors should be corrected when the pages are submitted to the editor, much like if I had a major omission in an article, or plot hole in a fiction story (or even just an unclear...
Anonymous asked: So question re the Rogue illo: why is sex appeal important? Would it be more or less important in an illo of one of her male counterparts?
I tried to fix it and ended up redrawing the pose. Honestly, I’m horrified this is pro work. (oh, and I’m ToxicNotebook)
Please, Sir, May I Have Some More?
Submitted for your approval… http://diablo2003.deviantart.com/art/X-Men-Legacy-cover-269516218 By the amazing Mark Brooks. I would like to submit this as evidence that what we’re asking is NOT impossible, and that it can already be found if you look hard enough. What we’re asking for is more of THIS. Mark’s Rogue exudes power and sex appeal in equal measure. She still...
Anonymous asked: As a non-comics reader, the impression I get of the genre is that while over the years it has gained readers that aren't teenaged boys or sexually and socially immature boy-man stereotypes, that demographic still makes up much of its readership base and its artistic conventions still reflect this. Do you think fixing the genre's artistic DNA is possible without dragging that portion of...
