August 22, 2017 11:28 am this might be an obvious observation but did you notice the cover is the sign of the horns?
June 26, 2017 8:14 pm There's an excellent documentary called Tim's Vermeer about an eccentric billionaire in the US that sets out to prove that Jan Vermeer used reference tools on to paint light and form with such accuracy. This isn't a new practice
June 26, 2017 12:23 am It's mostly noticeable on Madam Xanadu's arms and hands which have a somewhat standard Poser pose with CG render and 2D inking for contours. https://bw-1651cf0d2f737d7adeab84d339dbabd3-bcs.s3.amazonaws.com/products/product_84588/product_image_full_143305.jpg. http://i.imgur.com/b3CpQtI.jpg You can also see the CG on Zatanna's chest and neck. As an artist myself, I don't think those tools are off limits, especially because the comic book page involves much more than just drawing an accurate figure. I'm Just pointing at what the other listener might have perceived.
June 25, 2017 11:46 pm RE: the art question. I think Janin must use Poser or some sort of CG reference software for his human figures, which gives them anatomically correct proportions but a specific stiffness which can be perceived even when drawn over. I like his art in Nightwing, so this isn't a judgement on the art. Here's a model sheet where the CG is very evident. https://borgdotcom.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/jldark-new-roster.jpg
September 2, 2013 3:20 pm It's been a hell of a ride with you guys. I've been following ifanboy since the beginning (The first south american FrapprMapr, I remember). I was very glad to see you guys rise and achieve so much recognition in the field with this labor of love. It's sad to be here today, when things are winding down. But so many things have changed in the world in the past 13 years it's understandable that you want to change as well. Thank you so much for giving me a comics community when I didn't have one. Good luck in what's to come. Simon
January 23, 2013 1:04 pm Since Ron is going to Image, it's only fair to bring Rob Liefeld as his replacement to Ifanboy. Just saying. This is bittersweet. Good Luck Ron.
