As you can see from the examples, Jim Lee is an extremely good renderer of anatomy and of superheroes. His art is very distinctive in its perfection and high attention to detail. He is very famous and his art is splashed all over merchandising such as the Playstation 2 game, Contra and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figure box art. He has drawn many covers and is excellent at both drawing people and drawing backgrounds as evidenced in the Green Lantern and Batman drawings. In both those drawings there are very highly detailed cityscape backgrounds as well as well-drawn figures in the foreground. In my opinion, Jim Lee is the ultimate well-rounded artist. He really does not have any weak points and is excellent at rendering foregrounds, backgrounds and figures in space.
