 So I spotted these reference images on Joe's blog and Newsarama released the finish piece today.

If you've noticed that everyone seems to have the same fugly face it's because they've all become Joe Quesada.

First there is Cap and Thor. He didn't post his reference pic for the Sentry because I suspect it was taken whilst stalking Bendis for surprise butt sex.

Arms of play-doh.

Here is Iron Man and Norman.

So Pete isn't the one to bring Norman down.

Foul ball.

Yeah, I don't think that those are fat Play-doh arms.

Damn it, I don't want to give him credit for not pulling a Land.

Unlike Land, and Larroca, at least Joe Quesada can draw. I remember his pencils on Daredevil (either for covers or a short stint) and bully for him for actually looking in the mirror and making poses instead of tracing over stock poses.

There are many things to get on Joey Q for, but this ain't one of 'em.

I wondered why he kept Greg Land employed.

Cap and Thor look way too similar. I dunno.

Also, Norman looks... -odd-. He doesn't look scared, he looks like he's saying "Duuuuuuuuuh."

I don't see anything too terrible about this..

except that Sentry's cape is totally pulling a Batman or a Spawn here. What the hell?

Pretty decent art, here, though I'm less than fond of the fact that Cap and Thor seem to be drawn with very similar facial features arranged into relatively unique expressions. I really appreciate that photo references are being used here, while not being purely for tracing; it makes for realistic-looking hands. Norman's face is sort of funny-looking, though.

Having people pose for photo reference is a pretty common practice. Tony Harris and Alex Ross work exclusively like this.

I actually think it's kind of cute that Marvel's EiC runs around posing like a super-hero. Shame that his art is so.. well, you know.

I'm not making a personal attack, because I think Quesada's a perfectly normal looking guy, but the faces in the art are fugly. Thor's not awful, and I guess Sentry's meant to look weird, but Cap? D:

And that hideous gnarled hand of Thor's.

I do like the idea of Quesada as Norman. Just sayin'.

Norman's face reflected off of Iron Man is the funniest thing I've seen all day.

No wait. Quesada posing for Norman is the funniest thing I've seen all day.

He's one of the best artists in the biz - have some respect.

(also, while I have you, I don't seem to able to post posts after signing in to Dreamwidth using my OpenID - is this normal? Is this correct? I have to pay to join Dreamwidth if I want to do some more of my "Liefeld Mega Posts"?
