Ivo’s Corset! This looks bad.
Since you seem a bit light on Archie submissions, I thought I’d introduce you to minor Fleetway/STC villainess, Cam: Badnik repair specialist and nightmare shepherdess. I think her design problems relate to two minor, trifling points:
1) Her body:
2) her body + her face. HER FACE. HER FAAACE.
You’re welcome. (STC issue 32 and 33, if you’re a glutton for punishment).
Spend enough time on the internet and you’ll find that even this is not enough to deter some.
Ben Bates doesn’t draw Minecraft style ENOUGH if you ask me! I don’t know what that person was talking about, there’s a curve on her tail. Hardly Minecraft! With his art you’d think the world had more shapes than squares and rectangles or something, gosh. This has been a problem since the day he was hired.
Here, I have fixed everything wrong with that picture.
Truly an improvement. A++ please tell your mother/father/caregiver to put this on the fridge.
Turns out The Spriter’s Resource had rips:
All the Image characters became silhouettes (or got gradient-shadows). I dunno if those pixels around that white box were a result of shoddy editing or not.
I didn’t notice it on my small TV, but the parts of Robolactus behind the logo and near the FF of the Galaxy didn’t get blurred.
Well there you have it then. Many thanks to the other two who submitted covers, gamebuddy123 and neonzephyr. RADIX just had the clearest ones. And thanks to whoever ripped these at Spriter’s Resource too.
" Though Mina tried hard… it was clear to everyone. She had one giant tooth. And that reveled her dark secret.. she was a gopher."
I think everyone can just agree that Mina’s face is horrifying in general there.
I’ve been looking through some Archie Sonic images for things to submit and, having been inspired by the redlines of Ken Penders’ promotional images that were posted to here, decided to try doing some outlines of particularly bad looking panels of my own. Here’s one of Sally (don’t remember what issue it’s from) that particularly bothered me:
It may not look like much at first glance, but let’s look closer…
Tracy Yardley (or whomever this panel was drawn by) probably doesn’t get paid enough to care about any of this critique, but I do find it sad that Sonic fans as a rule have become so used to warped anatomy and sloppy craftsmanship that we can be handed a picture of a female with her body looking like a tube of squeezed playdough and her head flying off and on most days we don’t bat an eyelid at it.
Also, I didn’t notice until after I did the outline, but I messed up her hand. I hadn’t noticed it was going under her hair at first, and now I see that both sides actually are lumpy and swollen, with one lump being significantly larger than the other. Her palm looks like misshapen buttcheeks.
Gasp. Scandal. Some reason I think this’ll be one of the more controversial posts since it deals with fan favorite Tracy Yardley.
But I’ve said before, every artist has strengths/weaknesses and makes mistakes…
And turning a character into a dog bone deserves to be up here in my opinion.
There’s some stuff from the most recent SU I want to put up on here too, but I need to wait on. Spoilers and such. OR perhaps I can just put it under a read more. HMMM.
Found the trailer for The Lost Ones!
Hey, there. I got curious about that Lost Ones movie trailer you were raving about in another post and decided to track it down. Wasn’t too hard, actually. It’s right on Ken’s website. Scroll all the way down to the bottom.
Suffice to say, it’s exactly as hilari-bad as you said it was. Thanks for cluing me in to the existence of this utter masterpiece of complete…you know, I don’t even know what sort of masterpiece it is. Insanity? Unintentional comedy? You tell me.
The “flight” scene truly takes the cake. It reminds me of something off of Sesame Street or some other children’s program where the “special effects” are intentionally silly.
AMOAS: OH THANK GOD THAT SITE IS BACK UP. Just scroll past the 90s style website design to the “Lost Ones” trailer. It’s a thing of beauty.
The video on this site is apparently unwatchable for some people due it’s format. I think you need quicktime to watch it?
It’s around 1:30 in the morning or so and decided I was going to take a crack at this madness. Dimitri’s anatomy make me cry tears of horror.
Dimitri: “What the hell is going on” Edition. I noticed the magical mystery finger while tracing out the outline for this guy as well.
Another thing that never fails to look really awkward.
(Minor exceptions being really old and/or stylized cartoons in which they don’t actually have eyebrows to use. Clearly, Julie-Su and the rest of the Sonic cast have a perfectly functioning brow line.)
I want to play, too!
And what does her Skeleton look like?
Overall I have no idea what is going on here or how this creature can live.
HER HEAD IS A FUCKING HAM.
By the way- if you want to submit red lines of any Sonic comic related art, go for it. I can only see this leading to laughter. And tears. Lots of tears.
I love how you can see every muscle, sinew, and bone in Sally, Lupe, and Hershey’s legs but Julie-Su’s are just noodle legs.
Also, that shading is pretty bad- where the hell is the light source?
