Yup the title is true. We’re going to put the new Uncanny X-Men #1 through the art 2 scale and see how it does. This is how it works.
Every piece of art gets a score for Originality and a score for how much it looks like the actual character.
Scores are 1-10 with 1 being the best. The lower the average the better.
A colorless sketch can’t get a better score then 6
A colored sketch can’t get a better score then 4
Abstract can’t get a better score then 7
Watercolor, trends, etc, can’t get better then 6
Multiple artists get a separate score from an individual artist.
We average the two scores to get the piece score. Average out an artist’s scores and that is the artist’s score.
Get it? Easy.
This is the cover of the new Uncanny X-Men:
Well it’s not a sketch. Only sketch-like. The lack of detail in Cyclops body kind of gives it away. That’s not fully colored. So the Originality score will be better then 4. It’s not completely colorless so I guess I can give out a 5.
It’s not abstract. It’s original but not colored properly.
Okay it’s gone through the computer.
Originality is about 9. That’s not very strong but it’s a picture of Cyclops pointing with his fist as the other’s run towards something.
Scott and Colossus look a little off. Scott’s kind of on a streak of 11 years for not looking like Cyclops but oh well. They do look like themselves mostly. The details are not in the picture though. 6, we’ll give it a 6.
This art piece get’s a score of 7.5. Carlos Pacheco has had one piece of art reviewed so his overall score as an artist is 7.5.
Check the first blog post for one other score from a different artist!
Some characters are looking straight ahead and some are looking up. Storm is looking at her lightning bolt.
Cyclops is on a different plane and the lack of detail makes it look like characters are out of perspective.
Thanks for reading!
