Ghost Rider should just be naked all the time. I mean, I know the hellfire doesn't burn anything but sinners, but he should just whip off his clothes every time he changes, just so when he turns back, Johnny is naked in the middle of some public place with no idea how the hell he got that way. In other words, I think Ghost Rider should just be a dick all the time.

You know what bugs me about art though, that you already kind of mentioned? When people draw Batman's costume as blue. this isn't the 30's anymore, we have better ways of showing shading, and his costume was always meant to be black and grey. Start drawing it like that.

Also, when anyone draws the Jokers teeth as ridiculously huge. I'm looking at you, Tim Sale.

Yeah, Land sucks. But that's kind of commonly accepted as fact at this point.

Land devalues just how important those using real artistic talent is yet somehow he stays employed.
Go figure.

I like Land's hair, but that's pretty much it. And is he responsible for the hideous X-Men redesigns of late?
And Joker, 1-I remember reading somewhere that they were considering having GR naked in the movie. My only problem with your suggestion is that we already have a Marvel hero who's repeatedly woke up not knowing where his clothes are.
2-although I've touched on this, I CANNOT overemphasize how much I hate when blue highlights are overused on black costumes. Batman's probably the worst victim here, but there have been many others. U think the only thing protecting Black Panther from the overall misconception that his outfit is supposed to be blue, is his name. But then, that didn't save Batman. Bats aren't blue, shadows aren't blue. It was just ridiculous. But in any case, they have better coloring technology than they had 50 years ago, so there's no reason for this trend to continue.
3-Sale exaggerates so many things, & then understates things that he shouldn't. Look at his Batman.

Even there he's terrible. One page a character will have straight hair, the next it'll be wavy. No consistency whatsoever.

Look, it's hard finding the same model in a variety of poses, all right? Cut the guy some slack; he can only draw what he finds in his porn mags.

It's called a photoshoot. Porn sites have lots of 'em...

Or so I'm told. Not that I ever needed to go to a porn site, like, ever.

Taking a queue from Rogue:

"I'm not a woman, I'm a man, BABY!!"

Not an exact quote, but it sends the message.

I'm sure there are but it was hardly worth my time looking for glaring evidence to prove I was right when I can see it right in front of me everytime I visit my LCS.
He devalues what other artists try to do on the up and up...and he's getting paid.
