I have a huge amount of respect for all of the artists I cover in today’s video regardless fo whether I’m talking about some good or bad art from their career.
I’ve loved watching the trend of professionals reacting to good and bad things in their own field of work. The Corridor Crew’s videos of ‘VFX Artists React to Good and Bad Special Effects’ is currently my favourite series on youtube (partially because I used to work in special effects). But in general it’s always interesting watching well studied professionals talking about their craft. Another particularly fun one has been watching LegalEagle go through court and trial episodes of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. For anyone who hasn’t seen the two shows being referenced, here are links to both!

Real Lawyer Reacts to Reynolds v. Reynolds (Cereal Defense) It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Since I’ve been a professional illustrator and animator for 7 years now, I figured it’d be fun for me to break down what may have gone very right or very wrong in some of comics best and worst pages and panels. In this episode I break down some classic artwork including the infamous Rob Liefeld Captain America cover with his crazy wonky chest, Jim Lee’s aversion to drawing feet, Milo Manara’s controversial, busted looking Spider-woman as well as work from Kenneth Rocafort, Greg Capullo, FCO Plascencia, Francis Manapul and Humberto Ramos.
I hope you enjoy and learn a little something about the process of making comic book art from composition, the inking and coloring process or general anatomy. Thanks for watching!
