Carlo Pagulayan did these to illustrate what the poses would look like on a 3D model. You can find his original post here.
If you can’t access the link, Mr. Pagulayan comments:
Seeing the two covers I didn’t see anything wrong with the poses. Granted Land’s depiction of Silk’s anatomy is a bit fragile for my taste, but the pose still works.
SInce I don’t have a female model on call, I had to whip out Daz3d again to illustrate how the poses are perfectly plausible.
Being too technical makes some works stiff and generic, and to me the cover artist’s executions add a bit of grace compared to the other’s suggested corrections, which tends to be a bit more masculine.
A good artist can think in 3 dimensions and figure out how a figure would work. While also thinking of the field of view, or whatever lens effect (Fisheye, extrem perspective, etc). But then not all artist think the same or have the same imagination, and what you think is right, isn’t always the case for everyone, especially when you have different art styles.
That said, I’m sticking with the covers which to me are definitely better
Edit/Add: Also who’s to know what are the anatomical limitations of someone imbued with spider powers?
And on a personal note, you and your followers should probably look more at Milo Manara’s body of work before making all sorts of assumptions based on one not so great cover. Spider-Woman is NOT SQUATTING like you assumed. She is in the middle of climbing up a building with one leg still dangling off.
And your ‘correction’ of Greg Land’s cover looks like they’re in a jazz recital, not superheroes.
Where do I start?
First of all, I have to say thank you to Mr. Pagulayan for building a critique of my critique based on the critique itself. I can appreciate that. You are of course entitled to your opinion, and hope you will continue to let me be entitled to mine.
You say you have no problem with the covers and that’s fine, but I do have a problem with them and that’s fine too. You’ve built 3D models to illustrate your points, and that takes a bit of extra dedication that I respect. Nicely done. I’d like to bring your attention to the differences between your 3D models and the actual cover art.
When I redlined Greg Land’s cover, it was mostly because it was combined with Manara’s cover, which I found was a bigger issue. Land’s art is often traced, and what your 3D model shows me is that he possibly went from tracing photos to tracing 3D models. Hey, it’s fine to use reference to do your art! Manga Studio is built to have this exact functionality: importing 3D models and positioning them as you need in order to create your comic book art. That’s a really helpful tool, but sometimes, for some people, it becomes too much of a crutch in art. It stiffens everything up, plus there’s the fact that 3D models can be twisted in such a way that it goes beyond what is actually possible for a human body.
As for Manara’s cover, where did I say anything against the man, or his body of work, at any point in my critique? I talked about this piece, this pose being problematic because of its overt sexuality where no sexual context was involved. I’ve explained this within my post. It saddens me how people jumped to conclusions about how I was insulting Manara’s body of work or his anatomy when all I commented on was the posing.
Anyway, on to pictures.
Oh, and for the record, dear submitter, they look like they’re in a jazz recital in the original cover, as well. I didn’t change the pose much at all. As for your comment of my drawings being more masculine, maybe it’s because you’re so used to seeing women drawn all about boobs and butts that anything out of that mold means femininity is lost.
This said, I think it bears repeating:
FYI, Comic Artists and Fanboys and Defenders of the Bad Anatomy! Above is a beautiful example of sexuality on display versus a woman that is doing something awesome.
On the top: Sexy.
On the bottom: Woman At Work, Being Awesome.
Nothing wrong with the top. But don’t be drawing the top when your character is busy being the bottom one, okay? Thank you.
if ur looking for me i’ll be in the trash

Can you imagine Harry trying to parent his children and tell them they need to settle down but then James Sirius just pulls out his edition of Harry James Potter: A History and goes, “When you were my age you followed an alleged mass murderer into a tunnel, faced a werewolf and nearly got killed by dementors. I think I can go to The Bent-Winged Snitches concert.”
me: *dials 911*

me: i need someone to cuddle with, rub my back, and play with my hair
operator: someone is on their way, please stay calm
Ever wondered what acting would be like??
As an actor I can verify that this is 100% accurate not only physically but also mentally and emotionally but like in a really good way
