I dig it too. I loved Liefeld as a kid buying comics when he hit the scene. I thought the goofy proportions made his books fun to look at.

Also..

This poster looks nothing like 1992 Liefeld.


Seriously, the man must be blind. Where are the disproportionate body parts, the ridiculous bulging muscles, the over-sexualization? This poster is...restrained?

Not uncommon, many do it. It's no big deal.

Personally, if he's known for exaggerated features as a trademark or style, I'd prefer to see that, a bit like Rich Kelly.


Style yes

Wow, Deadpool doing way better than expected at the box office! Already crossed $260 mil worldwide, impressive for a $58 mil budget and a R-rated movie. Killing it!

I'm not talking about proportions. I'm talking about actual skill in drawing. The dude draws worse than most high schoolers. Plus he had to trace the picture, and still drew it like crap. He hasn't progressed in 20+ years.

This is why your argument is dumb, Ursus.

"Hey Chef, this souffle tastes like fudge."
"You don't like it, I'd like to see you cook a better one!"
"I can't, that's why I paid you."

If someone's a pro at something they're supposed to be good at it. Liefeld is bad at drawing, and shouldn't be paid for it. And me or you or him or her don't have to be better to be able to recognize that.
