Booster Gold - 1986



Wich2 said...'re the artist, Rob - but aren't his legs alone about 5 feet tall there?

yeah, if you take the size of Booster's head as a reference point, he'd be about 9 feet tall.

well, he IS from the future...

I've noticed many popular artists have trouble with scaling legs properly. I'm a big fan of George Perez, but occasionally, in his early work, his figures legs would seem tiny compared to the arms and torso. I like Jurgens stuff too, and he has be known to fudge things a bit. I remember the original ad for Armageddon 2001, and the central figure of Superman looked like he had little stubby legs. It was quite jarring.

Not putting myself in the same category as those guys, but I've went back and looked at stuff I've done and said "wow, how'd I get things so out of proportion?".
