Savage it certainly is.

It is nice to see the Hulk in the character commission section with his cousin.

Holy crap, that's awesome!

Although "incredible" would probably be the more appropriate adjective.

I have an art question for John. I fear that I may not be able to articulate the point very well, so cut me a little grace please;-)

Firstly, this is not aimed at this image, I'm just going to use it to help facilitate the question!

The question is "what is your opinion on contouring and directionality?"

In an effort ot ensure that I'm not using incorrect terms I'll try and explain what I mean.

This is something I seem to "see" a lot with inked work, not exclusively Johns, just in general. Where lines are used to render and obviously every line does a job of some kind. Sometimes a line can help suggest or reinforce the direction of an element within a scene. [Like is it coming towards us or going away from us]

Like the ribs on our chest. Looking from above, the arcs of the ribcage would appear convex, bulging outwards. Changing the angle will change the direction of this arc.

When I look at limbs, torso's faces et al in comics sometimes a glaring mistake leaps out where, say a leg will have interior shading all pointing in the opposite direction from the perspective that the leg is in and sort of flattens the image.

This seems to be the way of things but on occassion I see some artists pull this little oddity off!

So as an artist who has his own feelings on it, I value John's opinions on the industry and the practices there-in. Hence my question.

I have rather crudely altered the Hulks forearm to hopefully demonstrate what I mean.







I hope this doesn't come across as my knocking Johns usage of this technique in this image, as you can see from the back of the Hulks hand in this shot, JB has a very clear understanding of contouring, also note the curve of the hairls on the Hulks arm. My question is purely one of interest in hope of learning.

Massive and menacing!

Time to break out JB's original Hulk run again, I see.

Awesome, as usual. The thing I love most about JB's art, is the small details. Looking beyond the power, anger, savagery, and dynamics of the Hulk, I enjoy the attention placed on his feet and toes! It is those details that alot of past and present comic artist fail to grasp.
