Master of Strong, Confident, Sexy Female Characters

Jamie Tyndall, Comic Book Artist

Jamie Tyndall, Comic Book Artist

Jamie Tyndall, a Canadian-American comic book artist, is both known and criticized for his stylized depictions of lithe and busty female characters. He has worked with the industry’s most prominent publishers and illustrated many of the industry’s most popular characters – heroes, heroines and villains alike –  as shown below.

Tyndall’s work is unique and immediately recognizable, with common features which appear regularly throughout his work, especially where female characters are concerned. Hence the frequent criticism.

This individualism, for lack of a better word, is a trend which began with comic book artists born in the early 1960s, such as Todd McFarlane, Rob Liefeld, Erik Larsen, Jim Lee, Marc Silvestri, Whilce Portacio and Adam Hughes to name only a few. This generation, as one might call them, stood up to the monomaniacal, monopolistic large scale publishers to improve the conditions under which comic book artists work, particularly in regards to ownership and compensation, i.e. licensing, for their work and the characters they create. These artists with the exception of Hughes formed Image Comics in 1992 to have more creative freedom and the related financial rewards in the industry. As a result, Todd McFarlane is perhaps the wealthiest comic book artist in the world today.

These creators and those who have followed — which include Jamie Tyndall, J. Scott Campbell, Skottie Young and a host of others too many to list here — have sought to express their individual artistic vision through common features which thread through their work.

Tyndall’s female characters frequently posess robust but not overly large breasts, particularly thin waists, singularly long legs and especially round, curvaceous hips and buttocks. Tyndall’s depiction of feminine hips and thighs specifically play into the public’s current (over the last decade anyway) fascination with disproportionately large buttocks and thighs (one need only watch videos on TicToc, for example). Tyndall’s feminine characters also tend to have almond-shaped eyes, diamond-shaped – almost heart-shaped – faces with thin pointy noses and dark, pouting lips. They are almost always scantily clad in clothing and costumes which strategically display the characters’ feminine traits, to include a well-toned midriff which points to the pubis. Criticism of Tyndall’s work deals primarily with an over-sexualized portrayal of female characters.

While it is true that Tyndall is known (and frequently criticized along with J. Scott Campbell) for his strong, confident, curvaceous female characters, he is equally at home illustrating magazine-style layouts and limited prints which feature these same characters as though they are real people living among us which one might find on the cover of today’s fashion, fitness and lifestyle publications.
