As a child, I adored Superman. In school and at home, I would draw him all the time. I taught myself how to draw the “S” shield and, eventually, Superman himself. But I had this problem when I drew him: I could never finish the picture. Proud of my creation, I would keep adding more to my Superman. More and more lines; more and more “stuff”. More seams to the costume, longer cape, bigger muscles. Eventually, I would realize I ruined my once good Superman picture with clutter, so I would crumple the paper up and throw it out.
Injustice’s designs should have been thrown out.
This designs are awful. Godawful. God. Fucking. Awful. There’s no reason for all of that “stuff” on these designs. The line-work on Superman makes no sense! Batman looks like a mass of metal taped together! The Flash is a face-plate away from being Iron Man! I don’t care if these are “evil” versions of the heroes, these are just bad designs. Superman Blue, Knightquest Batman-awful.
Simplicity is the key to good, memorable design. So much so, after I post this, I have a feeling I’ll forget I’ve ever seen this picture.
It’s good to be a Marvel guy.
