Default Re: The Batsuit Thread

I don't mind Ross' designs, but I am in the minority in thinking that they don't work that well for comics. The 'foreground' characters look good, but the medium he uses is too light to render figures in the background satisfactorily, which makes detailed compositions outside of splash pages look messy. The best comicbook artists, in my opinion, are those that can use pencil (and have skilled inkers to maximise the effect) in the most sensitive way. Neil Adams is still unsurpassed, though Jim Lee has some of that magic. He just needs to tone down the crazy anatomy somewhat.
