    I haven't heard that he's a fake. His art is amazing I think.

    Almost all comicbook artwork is Photoshopped these days. It's how they color them.

    Greg Land's work looks as realistic as it does also because he uses alot of photo references.

    How does using photoshop to make his art look more realistic make him a fake? If anything I'd say it makes him more talented; being able to use different tools to make his art the best it can be.

    yeah, almost every mainstream book on the stands uses computers in one way or another to get their look.

    James Jean does, and he's incredible

    I don't see anything wrong with photoshoping or adding comp graphics to comics,it only adds to the medium.They've been doing it for some time now and I don't really consider it "cheating" since the creators simply want a book to look as great as can be,and I see nothing wrong with that.

    About Land,he's amazing.Nuff said.

    Well far be it from me to bad mouth anyone but greg land IS A PHOTOSHOP TRACER!

    Exhibit a:


    exhibit b:

    edited as pics stopped showing

    (and look at the pics of mags and the king of spain from HOM for more)

    It doesn't really bother me though if the end result looks good but it could cause marvel legal trouble.

    I can get on board with that. I've said many times that I don't like photo-referencing being leaned on so heavily, but I don't mind it so much with his work (except for Johnny's hair. I mean, c'mon, even Namor noticed!)

    He does great art (I can't see those images, gildea), but my only bone of contention with him is that he uses the same model for every woman. Jean Grey looks like Emma Frost, who looks like Sue Storm. It was the same when he worked for CrossGen. All those women looked like Jean, Emma, and Sue, too.

    I don't know how you could look at those and NOT think that they're traced/referenced/photoshopped.

    Outside of copyright considerations, it doesn't really matter to me. My only problem with doing that sort of thing is that I think it severely limits storytelling options. For talking head scenes, it doesn't make much of a difference. But for any kind of action, even simple moving, you need to use a different visual vocabulary than just copying what we do in real life.

    I know, they all look like Faith Hill IMO. Not a bad thing, but Some diversity would be nice.
