some people dont like Greg Lands art. some people do. ive found myself in conversations where im asked why im one of the people who doesnt, and have seen others do the same. theres been a long
ongoing controversy over Lands work online for some time. ive decided to collect alot of examples,
and itterate them here.
in my opinion, Greg Land cant draw the human body for squat. take this malformed Emma here.
i can cite tons like this. but so what right? who's perfect? well, Land is an acclaimed artist, and
responsible for the art on several flagship titles, and such sloppiness is sort of therefore questionable...
not really going to be the main point here however. the main point is going to be " swiping ",
another word for copying, plagurism, tracing, ect. all examples below are of Greg Lands art.
for starters, " artist swipe". this is when one takes from anothers work.
the infamous Charest swipe. the picture of Spider-Man is by Travis Charest, and came before
the Ultimate Power cover by Greg Land...
the " photo swipe ". taking a photo and tracing it. can also be done in art programs like photoshop, ect.
the " self swipe " taking ones own work, and reusing it, also known as recycling.

~ cover of Uncanny X-Men #500
for more contention....

so in your opinion, am i or anyone else wrong to not like Lands "art", which i consider an embarassment.
