I think at this point the thread has just become a challenge to positronic to see how many of the long standing  boarders he can alienate in a single discussion. To be fair, he appears to be doing very well.

Carlos and Ron have given pleasure to so many over the years, this thread seems very.....thoughtless. Just my opinion.

Spot on.

Hey Tom!

Always depressing when someone refers to dante as childhood reading.....that's when you know you've been a 20ppad reader for a looong time.

Each passing day makes me want to give up on politics more and more, it just gets downright depressing.


BUT.....I still have Carlos and Ron 😊

And Mick, king of them all. Thankfully this thread hasn't had a go at him (yet), else I think I would just call it a day!

Is it wrong that maligning my childhood artistic heroes does have more impact on me than the the political thread?

Oddly, in all the long years that I've been here.....this one has wound me up.

It's not just me then? This is an infuriating thread isn't it?

Ron's complete dedication to his artwork shines through in absolutely every panel of Dredd I have ever seen him draw.

Amen!

Now I can stop looking at this angst inducing thread.

It just seemed like a strange response to an interviewer with curiosity regarding the work under consideration, to be preserved for the edification of the magazine's history.

But it's an honest and entirely understandable response. I can only imagine Ron wasn't earning a ton of money from his comic work. To make a living he would have needed to maintain a level of output. You would need another wage or some form of financial security to be able to afford to spend as long as you liked on a page.

The thing is, his pages are flawless......I bet most artists wish they could produce work of that quality AND maintain a deadline.

Are we to expect a comic artist to live in poverty so that he can spend as long on a page as perfection takes for the glory of the comic and it's readers? Or can the man be allowed to earn an adequate living and also hopefully spend some time with his family too?

I think I need to stay away from this thread for the sake of my blood pressure. Artistic preference and subjectivity I understand, but the comments that aren't based on simple taste alone are really irritating me.

Deep breaths......

For me, Carlos just has an incredible understanding of human form and the way it works. I'm not talking so much about simple proportion, more the way figures stand, how their weight distributes and the way they move in his work all seems very natural and dynamic. Even a fairly static, front on piece of two figures walking above has a sense of natural movement and the figures have poise and presence that can be hard to achieve and comes about through underpinning knowledge and talent.



I couldn't agree more Dog Deever.  It takes incredible talent to produce convincing weight and natural form. He's an absolute master at it. The fact that he makes it look so frustratingly effortless only increases his brilliance in my eyes.
