Worst Spider-Man artist?

#1 Posted by DH1986 (22 posts) - - Show Bio

So I am really getting tired of how lousy the artwork in Amazing Spider-Man has been. I mean Ramos can't draw worth a crap, but I know art tastes very- What are your thoughts?

#2 Posted by Death Certificate (5438 posts) - - Show Bio

I think Ramos is a decent artist

I actually like Ramos, his Wolverine looks really cool! but his Spider-man looks kinda ridicules... it's not that bad but it's look like something for litlle kids, and Spider-man should not be a kid! If He should be a kid only in Ultimate Spider-man.

And it is very far from the worst but I really don't like the way alex ross draw him... he draw his costume like a regular costume for Halloween and it looks kinda bad.

Oh definitely Humberto Ramos. I cringe every time I see his name on a cover of Amazing Spider-Man. His facial expressions are just scrappy and his outlines are ridiculous. If I were reviewing it, I'd only give Ramos a 4 or 5 out of 10.

i like ramos. he draws an awesome wolverine and a very hot MJ.

I'm not a big fan of Ramos' art. It can get sloppy and difficult to follow. I prefer the style done by Camuncoli in the recent issues

I have seen this picture more than once, yet I am still amazed at how terrible this picture is. Dear God this guy makes liefeld look like a well trained Doctor on human anatomy.

hey hey now. lets not lose our heads here. the art is bad but not liefeld bad. he is the king. this is bad but its funky a certain style. liefeld is 5 year old level drawing. seriously. if you showed a pic of something drawed by liefeld to a kid and tell him to replicate it, he can do it. perfectly.

@KainScion: Come man, this picture is just bad, the guy that draws for wolverine & the x-men does a funky/cartoon art style, but this guy...

@KainScion: Honestly? I'm kind of eager to see how Spider-man clings to walls without feet.

It's kinda sad to see how many people dislike Ramos. I mean yeah, his style is not for everyone, but i think his more recent artwork in the amazing spider-man is just pretty good, at least a lot better than his older one. I think his style fits to the character, due to his character( you know being funny and all, it's not that bad to see a style that fits to that character ), but i wouldn't expect Ramos to draw batman and give you the dark feeling that it should! Just my opinion though! :)

Ramos and Eric Canete.

I dunno - the recent issues have had pretty disappointing artists...

#27 Posted by PaperDemon (602 posts) - - Show Bio

Guys i know i might sound too accepting, but these artists try hard. You guys insulting there artwork is probably making them feel bad. I bet half you guys cant even draw as good as the "crappy" artists.

#28 Posted by Duke_Nasty (1017 posts) - - Show Bio

@PaperDemon: I don't think Ramos has bad art I just don't like it.

Also of course we can't draw as well as them THEY GET PAID to be professional artists, they should be good and trying hard isn't good enough. The Buffalo Bills try hard and are better at football than me but I still think they suck.

I remember when all of Marvel's best artists bailed on them to go form Image comics back in the day. And I remember how awful it was there for a while after the exodus. Web of Spider-man, Spectacular Spider-man, and the title once called "Todd McFarlane's Spider-man". All of those books suffered. Marvel knew people would buy Spider-man comics no matter what so they just shoved whatever hacks they had left in the slots left empty by the Image guys and thus began the dark times.

Everything I see in modern comics is better than it was back in those days. Even that weird Lade Stilt-man panel buries the work from back then.

@ZZoMBiE13: I'm still in love with McFarlane's Spider-man. His art is just beyond awesome. I'd have given anything for him to do the art on the 50th anniversary issue!

Spider-man never looked more spidery (or as threatening) than when Todd drew him! David Finch also draws a very good Spider-man.

@Strider92: I loved the way Todd drew spider-man. With his giant bug-eyes, 3d webbing , and the fact that he was always crouching, swinging, doing things like only Spider-Man could do. I loved it, although I didn't really like the way he drew the regular people, always looked weird to me.

Ramos is FAR from the worst Spider-man artist. Hell, he's easily one of the best due to his unique and fun style.

I wouldn't say that Ramos is bad, but I would say that I do not enjoy his style. He exaggerates things too much.

Some of you guys must be art snobs or something cause besides the one picture that looks like spiderman is missing limbs the rest just look like the type of art style. Just my opinion it's for sure not the greatest by a long shot but the way you guys were talking thought they were stick figures lol.

Actually I've noticed that my main problem with his art is faces - they usually do not work that way. When everybody masked - it's perfectly fine.
