Mike Leeke X-O Manowar Commission

Found this at today and thought I'd share. I always enjoyed Mike Leeke's work on X-O Manowar. He wasn't outstanding but he was a good and clear story teller. I am not a fan of this piece though. The speed lines feel very out of place. The pose is awkward. The twin blasts are just wrong. The color is too saturated. The choice to use the later redesign of the armor disappoints. But its the cartoon-like Spider Alien head that really brings this down.

UPDATE: I have rightly been called out on how harsh I was to this image. Let it be clear that these are my opinions, based on my taste, and do not reflect the opinions of others (especially those who think I suck!)
