Here's my take on his art from another thread:
Well IMO, aside from not drawing female characters as stick figures who can somehow impractically sport huge breasts and/or asses unlike many other artists, his art is good at conveying action and he tends to draw excellent backgrounds. His panels can come off detailed without being cluttered. Also, the art manages to come off very fluid.
I also must contend on the "clean" thing. I think that's mostly due to the style. A lot of artists excel in the "clean" style (i.e. Dodson, Amanda Connor), while a lot of artists excel in the "gritty" or "sketched" style (i.e. Mike Mignola, Frank Quitely)Anyway, it looks like those Spider-Man and X-Men pics aren't showing up. Here they are again.
I meant his female character actually have figures that are capable of supporting such, um... assets. Still, he's drawn small-chested females as well. I have to disagree on the figures. With both male and female characters, he actually tends to do a decent job giving them different frames. His Kitty doesn't look like his Emma, who doesn't look like his Mary Jane, who doesn't look like his Cheetah, who doesn't look like his She-Hulk. With females, this is a problem (Frank) Cho tends to suffer from. I'll give you the faces, though he seems to have improved on that.My biggest issue is his lack of distinction between characters, specifically females. Every face is exactly the same and that cover with the X-ladies just amplifies it. All with the slightly-chubby, 3/4 profile face turn. The art is a bit too clean, too. There's no scratchiness, no life to it all. It's like they're plastic in the panel (my biggest beef with Choi, too). A bit too perfect. Devoid of any soul.
And here are some comments from other posters:
naw - Dodson is a very good artist. and he can also draw panels that tell a story. unlike Land, who just draws one unrelated panel after another and puts them all on the same page. Land's panels actually confuse the storyIn regards to the Land/Dodson artwork, why the hell can't Land understand that women are supposed to have hips not 12-year-old boy thighs? It's farking disgusting. Whoever said that Land's females are stick figures with ginormous silicon tits is spot on. Anyone who disagrees has watched too much porn and not studied enough anatomy.
Bring on the Dodson, at least his women have curves :)
/actually, bring on the Jim Lee pleaseAnyone else want to share their thoughts or critiques on Dodson's work?(Land) I hate the fake smiles, the boy hips, the giant boobs. Do people really not like to look at real womens bodies? Why this fascination he has with anorexic models is beyond me.
