Proof that even as stretchy as CLAMP's character designs have gotten lately (and boy howdy, have they ever. 'sup, Yuuko?), they'll never touch Liefeld's.

One page from Avengers volume 2, #1.





I think when someone's complimented by the phrase "miles of legs", it's not supposed to be this literal. Damn, woman.

Good Lord! Her feet should be where the tops of her boots are, at most, and that's given a very long pair of legs in proportion to the rest of her, knee-level or so would be better. I think her super-long legs ate at least half the mass of her lower torso, and that's if she's supposed to be slender with large breasts. In defense of CLAMP, the most stretchy things I've seen them do are both less stretchy than the image of Enchantress, and more proportionately stretchy. *looks back at the picture, and shudders*

See, personally, I'm more of a fan of CLAMP's earlier works, like Card Captor Sakura, Clamp School Detectives, and Man of Many Faces. But even though I'm not particularly fond of a stretched-out, noodley stylization form, I'm still perfectly happy to acknowledge that it's still a proper stylization form, as opposed to simply anatomy bad enough to make my eyes burn. I'm not going to say that everything that man draws is automatically bad, but I've been mentally scarred by enough examples to want to avoid his work where possible, the super-legs illustration of Enchantress merely supporting this. *sigh* Let me put it this way. I read Saint Seiya for the great plot, while fully aware that the art is less than superb. There's some odd stylization for certain, and the perspective has been known to be off, even if the overall effect is still pretty cool. However, the anatomy there is sooooo much less glaring even at its worst.
