I really don't think some of the digital paints look good, AT ALL. The older ones, near the bottom of the article, look halfway decent, but the newer ones (the guy leaping with the knife, girl on motorcycle, etc) just look really cheap. I actually think it makes the art look worse in some cases. They remind me of the cut screens in old NES video games.
Digital painting is just a tough sell for me.
This is not to kiss Pedi's ass, but it looks good on his work. Maybe it's the muted palette, I'm not sure, but I like it there.
With the stuff Swift used to do, people looked shiny. It wasn't necessarily bad, but it just wasn't my cup of tea. I'm not sure how I feel about on the new Cable series either. The art team there is very good, but the pages can seem static sometimes, even in the middle of an action scene.
I get what you're saying though and I completely agree. The style on Armageddon does indeed look like some of those cut scenes from the NES games.
