I like it. I wouldn't call it a favourite of mine or anything but it looks nice and it fits a certain type of books just fine. So a 3 from me.

2. It's cheap. It doesn't look professional.

She’s great, she doesn’t do superhero stuff but her work is fantastic and she’s one half of the reason saga is, IMO, the best book on the stands right now (I know it’s on hiatus currently)

2. Her work isn't ugly, but it doesn't meet the standards set by pros in previous eras.

it also looks like it was created on a wacom tablet, trad is the best way to go.

I like her artwork but she is definitely not a top tier artist. Her art looks satisfying but I wouldn't exactly call it beautiful. It looks good only in Saga and in everything else I've seen her artwork it's rather mediocre, so a 3 from me.

Her art actually looks pretty good to me. Haven't seen much of her work outside Saga, but I love her work in Saga. It's at least a 4 in my book.

I would usually worry about the fact that I've given 4+ to nearly all the artists mentioned so far, but they're all pretty good.

She's good in her own style, draws with ease, there is no glaring mistakes or anything off, expressions are fine, hands too. I'd hire her. 3.5/5.

It's a 3 for me, her style is good but not great.

Suggestion: if you're up for it, do another thread on Simon Bisley.

Her art looks pretty good, but in comparison to what I would consider top tier, it's a bit mediocre.

@life_without_progress Is this the most recent one you did?

Not really my preferred style (I like the work of Lee Bermejo best) but she has solidly achieved the look she was going for. 4.

Certainly not above 3. Her art is really average at best.

One of the best artists in the business, in my opinion. Loose but clean lines, great at facial expressions, excellent coloring.
