Modern Comic----Art? (MARVEL Edition)

Thought I'd start a new thread where NEW comic artwork, good and bad, can be explored, dissected and explained. As is evidenced from the thread title and it's location, obviously everything here will be MARVEL or MARVEL related.

My main reason for starting this is to study and analyze the current trends in modern comic-book artwork. There are an awful lot of really great artists on these boards who are not currently being published, but who should be, IMHO, ESPECIALLY judging by some of the artwork currently on display by both MARVEL and DC.

Let's start with artwork recently released for the relaunch of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN due this summer...

Artwork by RYAN OTTLEY

That looks really well drawn....and generic, bland and safe also.
Who is the artist (and really, if they are damn good or unique artists, most of us on this site would know them already).

OKAY, just read the signature.....WTF?
Ryan Ottley did awesome stuff for Invincible.
Why does this look so bland?

To me it looks exactly like the art of ryan Ottley. It looks like the exact same style that hes done In invincible for years now. It just looks like his stuff.

I think this would look better if it was animated for tv, it's kinda boring for a comic.

I think the colourist on Invincable was better. I went and had a look.
I think this is alot more shaded and actually weakens his nice linework IMO.

I agree. It may not be as dynamic as some of husbands invincible work, but he had years to develop those characters. Hes just getting his feet wet with the Spidey universe. Give him some time and it will be as awesome as anticipated.

He may be a bit stiff after reading the bible of conventions and rules these licences have for each character. But as Bishop said, give him some time for gaining confidence. This guy can be really surprising.

Just re-read my post. Obviously Ottley is not my husband. Curse you autocorrect...

Yep. The last post I recall from Ryan was him announcing that Invincible had been optioned by a movie studio. That was ages ago.
