Day 13: Artists who draw the hottest characters
Don’t go by the image. I just wanted to show random comic artists and I went with this shot from Chasing Amy. I did so because I have another non-answer response coming up (sorry). Basically, I find it varies by artist for different characters. For example, I love Black Canary by Cliff Chiang and to some extent Ed Benes, but it doesn’t feel as natural for ALL characters drawn by them (I do like Bruce and Savant as drawn by Benes, though). Adam Hughes does amazing cheesecake stuff for certain characters, but I find it overdone for others. Michael Turner had his strengths and his weaknesses, and while I like Deodato’s use of shadows for quite a few characters, I can’t say it works every time because it’s not even possible to make out what a few of them look like with the shadow. Sana Takeda’s been mentioned for the amazing Ms Marvel run, but there were a few Heroes for Hire covers where it just didn’t work.
Basically, it’s obvious when certain artists’ styles fit for certain characters, but they might not be able to use their gifts as well for a lot of others.
