    I know this comment is old, but my problem with Ramondelli is that if you take away the colours, the effects, the grit and the excessive shading you're left with truly flat panels of characters who are terribly crude and almost amateurish sketches.

    Like, look at any of LR's work and just imagine the lines by themselves and how utterly awful that would work, then think of Roche, Milne or especially Guidi and see how much their art can stand on pencils alone.

    I don’t like to compare Livio to anyone else. I’m also not saying he’s better than those you have mentioned but his style is very distinct, which I like. And taking away things like the added colours and affects isn’t really Livio’s art in its entirety, is it? Everything he does in those panels are what makes up for the disproportions or what have you.

    That’s almost like saying to take everything that Guido does in his art but remove the Transformers. It isn’t really complete. And therefore, cannot be judged in full.

    If your lines can't stand on their own and you need coloring and effects to make it work, then it's not good. You need a strong base (lines) to get started, otherwise you're bound to start low and end low.

    But I enjoy Livio. It’s an opinionated statement. You may not like him (and some of people’s distaste is warranted), but I do. What makes an artist good is one thing but an artist that appeals to a certain individual is another.

    These bios are pretty cool. This is making me hope the comic has a lot more going for it. I like Scavenger. And especially since he’s my favourite Constructicon, it’d be great if he had some proper time to shine. I mean I’ve been reading all about Hirohiko Araki‘s writing process, so I’ve been only looking for truly great stuff. But this sounds promising.

    Also this guy has the original Devastator toy patent on his wall. Anyone else heard about this? It’s crazy.

    Oh, look. That's what I was waiting for. Bringing back the fallacy of magickal gizmos needed for making combiners.

    The NuIDWverse simply looks more and more promising with every new announcement.
