He's a clown, but people keep buying his work for some odd reason. I think he's gotten worse at drawing over the years. Good luck to him in this future endeavor.

Rob Liefeld can't even draw feet. He's the one who should be sued.

Seeing that he tagged Iger, could it be Deadpool related...maybe he's trying to take a page out of the Sony playbook and renegotiate the Deadpool deal?

I have no respect for an artist in the industry who cannot draw anatomy competently & threatens to sue anyone!


Has Liefeld ever apologized for this?

Wait a second. Are you saying Rob's version of Captain America doesn't look as good as this one? Haha

Every time I see this I'm just astounded that a "professional" artist would sign his name to something that grotesque.

From what I understand he supposedly used one of Arnold's body building pics as a reference (side chest pose aka right bicep flexed, left hand grabbing right wrist with torso turned and pecs flexed for those non-bodybuilding aficionados) The fact that he failed so badly trying to translate a picture he was looking at just makes me shake my head all the more.

Maybe this has to do with that reprint of New Mutants 98 he was all pissed about...

Rob Leifled was a UNTALENTED HACK in 1990s and he is a untalented HACK in 2019! I am ashamed to say I did buy the first few issues of youngblood back when Image first came out but I was a young stupid Image fanboy. I quickly stopped buying those books after I couldn't take spending of my min wage earned cash on that CRAP!

ANyone who buys that untalented plagiarizing hack's work should get their head checked out!

For everyone saying he can't draw feet, he did six of them on this cover. Artwork on this one isn't bad at all.

now, now, people....we can't blame Rob for this.
As long as people keep throwing large amounts of cash at you for doing something I suggest you keep doing it - no matter how good or bad people say you are at it - until they stop throwing cash at you!!!
Then and only then should you maybe try doing something differently.

I wonder if people buy his stuff as a joke to rag on him. Major X should never have gone to a first printing, let alone a 3rd or whatever it went to. Clearly, people are buying all his work for some reason. I admit X-Force used to look kinda cool back in the day when I was a kid. When I turned 13, I started wearing glasses. Same thing with some of his New Mutants work. I think Todd ghosted some of those covers which is why they looked good. I digress. If I didn't go for the full runs of X-Force or New Mutants, I doubt I would have any of his stuff.

On the other hand, my friend really likes Liefeld and considers him a phenomenal artist who gets unfairly crapped on. I've recommended he start taking drugs to clear his mind.

Or get glasses.

NM98 is still an iconic cover.

I wonder if it’s the timing of that Major X cameo...

His art isn't my favorite, but it's not the worst I've seen. My problem is and always has been the same. The guy describes ripping off others for the couple of characters he "created" and then constantly freaks out about ownership of creations. The self-deluded egoism of that is just too much for me to ever take anything about him seriously. That on top of that Deadpool that people know and love was actually developed after he left (personality and art-wise the Kelly/McGuinness run). He was directly involved with..what? First couple of appearances? and it immediately got developed without him. If this is about Major X, that would be even more absurd.

I wanted to get into X-Force, but... I just can't. Not with that art.

He has SOME talent to learn from. He's isn't a well-rounded artist, though. If someone else drew a character outline, I feel like he could competently shade for them.

Liefeld is the creator of Deadpool in the same way a sperm donor is a father.

A few of us have waiting for everyone else since the 90s.

This is a cover I sometimes use as an example of him not being able to draw feet. Shatterstar's left foot look "ok", so that's probably the one he'd say he messed up.
And her thighs lol

The proportions on that cover are so out of whack and the errors are centered on the cover. Not just Dominos legs, but Deadpools left thigh is laughably misproportioned. HOWEVER, it's not like that's unique to Liefeld. I will say I don't dislike this cover (or NM 98). But I'd also argue he's gotten much, much worse...almost lazy. His covers don't look like this anymore for the good parts, but the bad has gotten so much worse. Have you ever tried to swing a punch with the same arm you're in the middle of kicking with...while not training your gun on the target in front of you? No? Just checking. What position is his right hand at for that gun angle?

I like Ethan Van Sciver's work in many cases, but sometimes, his scale, proportions and perspective are seriously jacked up. New 52 Batman #1 (look at the shoulders) and Dark Knights metal Justice League #32 (WTF with the Merciless's right arm?) come to mind as freaking terrible.
