philippos42: "Dark Vengeance!" (misfit)
Not long ago, I had a conversation about how comic book artists draw women.

More precisely, yesterday an acquaintance made a crack about superheroine bust sizes. And I said some variation on what I often say, that's just an artist's shorthand, whatever. Also some artists are kind of silly. I usually take it in stride.

Today, I was looking at these scans from Legendary Star-Lord. I am suddenly bugged by Kitty's bust size in this issue. Has Medina been drawing her that way along and I just now noticed because of the outfit? Is she sticking out her chest?

I got weirdly angry about it.

So, I looked at some other scans. Yes, Medina draws her that way. The concept art for the new GotG doesn't so much, I think. It's a stupid minor thing.

Her chest is not badly drawn. It's realistic enough. It's roughly in line with other artists. It just suddenly seemed "off" to me. I dug out some All-New Doop issues. Yeah, OK, not that different; I guess I was remembering wrong.

So, a smart remark about cartoon breasts in general somehow led me to get bothered on an artist who's actually drawing them well?

Argh.

Comics.
