I listened to the newest podcast for this pin with Scott Danesi to keep up with the latest info, but to also try to fully understand the artwork as he envisioned it and compare it to what was released.
Scott has described the intent on artwork in detail, which is called 80's future realism. As he mentioned, it is a big scene and there are lots of people into it. There are a lot of examples of 80's future realism out there, here's a google search.
The TNA artwork released does show this influence strongly; much of the artwork is very faithful to the style of 80's future realism. We see it with the neon colors, grid lines, geometric shapes, technology shown, etc. The artwork is faithful to that style everywhere,...... except in the drawing of the woman imo. And many here have posted the same thing, so I find there is something to this. As some have noted, she looks more like a 90's style of drawing. The 80's style of drawing people tended to have either less detail or more realism. Browse the images in the earlier google link to see many examples of drawing people in the style of 80's future realism. Sorry, I do not see this style in the woman as drawn on the artwork.
The drawing shown of the woman is a middle-of-the road detail and cartoon style that I found became popular in the 90's and 2000's. I have to agree at this point that there is merit to the feedback that the style of the woman is not as congruent with the overall art package as it could have been and as described by Scott.
Don't get me wrong on the drawing of the woman. Matt Andrews is a great artist and it's great, amazing, it's just not the style typically used in 80's retro futurism. And no, this is not about anything else some have alluded to here, such as it being a woman, or needing more sexy, etc. I appreciate the 80's style future realism look Scott was going for, I just expected the woman on the backglass to be more in that style; a woman with either less detail or more realism and more drawn in the well-known look of 80's future realism (again, browse the images in the google link above). And because drawing people into artwork is probably the most important element to the overall feel, I end up finding the released artwork to be more 90's style. As it sits now, that drawing of the woman contrasts the rest of the 80's style future realism look.
According to the podcast, two backglasses will come with it, one without the numeric displays and one with. And this feedback is supposedly all for naught. Scott has said the artwork is not changing.
That was just my take here, and I'm not slamming things. I look forward to the next information released.
