I've always appreciated the way Mr Perez would give characters unique faces. Especially in a scene where, lets say, Steve Rogers, Clint Barton and Hank Pym are relaxing masks off.

Love this commission! Very timely too, as I've been reading the Teen Titans run from Wolfman and Perez for the first time.

It doesn't have to be photo-realistic... but perhaps lifelike could be sufficient.

Years ago, an artist (who shall remain nameless) decided he was going to take under his wing one of the New Guys, whose work was, to put it mildly, grotesque. So he took the New Guy to a life drawing class, with a real nude model. By the end of the class, the drawings New Guy had produced looked every bit as grotesque as any of his other drawings. Even with a real human being posing right in front of him, New Guy could not draw a realistic human figure.

This was, in microcosm, an example of the "This is How I draw!" mindset that has taken over, and that produces, for example, generic versions of Starfire and other such normally distinctive characters.
