Hehe…Michael Turner Nightmares

Steve Flanagan had a funny post up at his blog here where he talks about how scary the concept of “a Michael Turner drawing coming to life” would be.

He’s definitely right, but the article would have been absolutely perfect if he could get someone to photoshop the actress to resemble the drawing.

Then you’d have sad fanboys trying to argue that some freaky skeleton-person is hot. And that would be funny.

You know who I feel sorry for? That guy who used to go to high school with Michael Turner, and is now jealous of his artistic success and talent. How badly did that guy fuck up his life?

Her legs need to be longer, Joel. She should look like she’s wearing leg-shaped stilts.

Well done, Joel.

But Joel, she’s still got feet!

She needs a 3 foot long stomach to resemble a Michael Turner rendition.

All the same though, despite the fact that Michael Turner is a crappy artist that’s a really unfair thing to complain about.

A lot of artists aren’t photo-realistic. Frank Quitely, Tim Sale, Bruce Timm, Kaare Andrews, Mike McMahon, Mike Avon Oeming, Eduardo Risso, Alberto Uderzo, Sergio Aragones, Herge and countless other artists are all excellent artists, but if you put people into the real world looking exactly like one of their pictures they’d all look like freaks!

I’ve just looked at the first of the Kryptonsite photos of “Kara” taken on set, which CBR Comic Reel linked to. It’s cropped just above her feet! They really are trying to be faithful …

Dan, it’s been said many times before, but I’ll say it again: the bodies all the artists you mention draw fail to conform to reality because of design. The bodies Turner draws fail to conform to reality because of incompetence.

Well with Turner I think it’s a bit of both. I do think he deliberately doesn’t draw realistic people – but I also think he’s a crappy artist who couldn’t if he tried – as opposed to Jim Lee who probably could draw well if he chose to (and I believe has on a couple of occasions).

My point was though that the particular complaint of how his people would look in the real world isn’t really a fair one in itself because it lumps a load of excellent artists in with Turner (which is something we should never do)

No it doesn’t. People are only talking about Turner.

I can’t work out if you’re missing my point wilfully or not
