  • Artist's embarrassing moments

    Dear Comic Book Enthusiasts,

    While flipping through my comics, I regularly come across images that for one reason or another could be described as "plain wrong". No, I am not specifically referring to comic book characters portrayed by for instance a Rob Liefeld: That involves personal taste and is a subject that in my opinion cannot be touched upon. I am however referring to improper anatomy: A character may suddenly have the wrong amount of fingers or the left and right hand have magically switched position.

    And then I thought that perhaps there are others that would like to share those images with their fellow Penciljackers. Aside from bringing a smile to our faces, they could also serve as warnings to never make those mistakes ourselves.

    I'd like to post one myself to start off with but I am unsure as to wether it is allowed (Copyright and Other Legal Stuff).
    Anyone out there have some info on this?

        My favorite part of that picture is how the face doesn't match up to the level of detail applied to copying the photo. And he's got like a huge drop shadow over the right side of his face. It also looks kind of proportionally too big and aligned crooked. So, uh, good job tracing, I guess.

          I saw a gif that made a pretty convincing case for it not even being a trace; the hands/medals make it look like a basic photomanipulation.
          Apparently ninja revisionist history spread the lie that pirate conquistadors are no match for ninjas.

            wait, what the hell is that from and who did it? was it bradstreet? i like how you can see the edge of the original head peeking out on his right our left side. i guess that supports the case for photomanipulation because if you went to all the trouble to trace (why bother to work so hard?) wouldnt you at least not trace the original head?

              How about in the Baba Yaga short where Mignola gave Hellboy a LEFT hand of doom on the last page?

                            How the **** does that HAPPEN? When I was little, coloring errors like the TMNT colored with the wrong bandanas, or someone accidnetally filling in teeth skin colored used to bother me so much. How does someone not notice those things? I guess they're not such a big deal, but then shit like this happens. Unless that was done by one person (judging by the two enormous signatures [belonging to people very proud of this piece, obviously] I'm going to guess that it was at least two), an inker and colorist didn't say anything, and then everyone who was involved in publishing that had to either not notice, or not say anything. All of which are indications of a problem in the system.

                            Unless that character happens to have six fingers on her right hand, I don't know, but it can still be applied to other problems.

                              I think most people have seen this one. It's not a mistake, just Quesada bein' sneaky.
