With all the screencap hate (and we don't really need to discuss it here too), sometimes you just need a reminder that art can be really bad, too. So let's try to keep things in perspective and have some fun.

Please post your own examples, because hey... it could be worse.

Limit one image per post, thumb the worst ones and I'll send 50 GeekGold to the person with the most thumbed image when the set is released.

I'll just set the bar right here:

I'm going to ban the "tasteful nude" version of this as an entry. Sorry, try harder.

I'd rather have bad art than screencaps, all day, every day.

You made it personal. All it did was buy you a little more pain than most.

An all Liefeld set would be amazing. We'd never see feet, men's chests would be barrel sized and lined with a dizzying amount of pockets and pouches, muscles would show up in unusual places, closed fists would have weapons drawn around them, ladies' waists would all be roughly the size of a toothpick and they would break their own spines to show you their bums while still looking at you. Also, all of the guns would be bigger than the characters themselves. What a time to be alive.

I agree that a lot of Leifield's work is pretty bad, but he has good stuff out there too.

For me, the artist that is getting a lot of press at the moment that I'm not a fan of at all is Kris Anka which is doubly irritating for me because of the fact that he's working titles I follow. His proportions are fine for me, but the way he depicts women's faces, especially Captain Marvel, is just atrocious. I'll give a couple of examples, unfortunately, I can't find the one on the interwebs that really grates at me -- I'll probably have to just do a direct scan and share later.

Comparing screencaps to bad art, screencaps are more acceptable for an eye. Unfortunately Legendary is not a beauty contest. It is game where all cards were drawn and adding screencaps is like adding barbecue sauce to vanilla ice cream. Some may like it, some will say it is interesting idea but reading forums including my native there is negative response.
Personally I will buy it because I want those ice cream hidden under barbecue sauce but I don't appreciate it in future boxes.

And edit.
Bad art is better than screencaps. Cap75 have cards with bad art I didn't like. Now from screencaps perspective they are not so bad ...

Nope, no debates or arguments in this thread, please. Can't we just have fun with bad art?

Nope.

Anka is highly stylized; he's not trying to be a Deodato or a Bagley, and the people hiring him for projects aren't looking for him to be. His style might be distasteful for some, but to others, it's a breathe of fresh air.

I checked the Cap75 images folder to see if I could link Steve Rogers, but there's only three images there.

Those aren't the debates I'm referring to.

I'm on my phone with pretty terrible service, so could someone please link an image or two from Legendary Firefly for me?

That's my entry. The entirety of Legendary Firefly.

It's not Marvel, but it demonstrates the horrors that our old buddy Rob is capable of. Note that I do not post this for the titillation that Liefeld clearly was going for; you'd have to be pretty twisted to find this titillating anyway. Which explains Rob Liefeld.

I'm perfectly fine with that. Those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it. If you look up "bad art" in the dictionary on wikipedia, you'll see samples from Liefield.
