My first official Liefeld picture! (I may have posted him in the past without knowing it, but I haven’t been aware of it if I have.) I’ve actually been trying to AVOID Liefeld to start because I wanted to avoid people just saying “oh that’s Liefeld, he can’t draw anything”, and because he’s such an easy target, but I think Escher Girls is at a point where it’s pretty clear it’s not just Liefeld that has issues drawing and posing women.
Also is the weapon in her right hand SUPPOSED to be that short? Is it a dagger, or did Liefeld just screw up trying to make it look like it’s pointing away? With him, you can never be sure WHAT’S on purpose. xD
A friend posted this on Google+ today; I thought of your Tumblr right away!
Ohhhhh Rob Liefield.
xD This is kind of the reason why I haven’t initially posted any of Liefeld’s stuff. People have already pointed out all his bad art, and how he thinks women are 20 heads tall and his obsession with pouches. But sometimes I feel bad for him, he’s become the scapegoat for ALL bad female character art, people just assume it’s all by him and there’s a LOT of other offenders. And I didn’t want this blog to start off with people saying “yeah but that’s Liefeld, he can’t draw ANYBODY”.
Excellent! Thank you holdthesebees! :D
Does anybody have the 2nd page? It’s from Wizard by the way (where else?)
When coming up with a gesture, I don’t use any reference, but once it comes time to finish the drawing, well, I’ll look at everything from Victoria’s Secret catalogs to Maxim to my shapely wife for input.
I love how he goes “from Victoria’s Secret catalogs to Maxim” as if he’s showing that he references from a wide variety of female body types, clothing and poses. This explains a lot. Also, I don’t know if that’s really a compliment to his wife if he honestly believes she looks like his drawings. I hope that her spine is okay at least. It doesn’t surprise me that he doesn’t reference to start the picture either.
His fear that Wonder Girl’s waist is too big for a girl explains a lot about his art too (and that he fears “man hands”).
