: Henry Flint or Anthony Williams - Artists Ryder Cup Current vs Classic - Tie 28

If you want to understand the white hot crucible of rage that a human can feel you only have to remind me that Henry Flint, 2000ad’s definitive Art Droid, was knocked out in the Quarter Finals of the Current Tourney. I’ve never quite been able to forgive you all that and still wake up at night silently screaming as I remember the count confirming the result, a cold sweat and hot tears mixing on my contoured face.

I also really like Anthony William’s art (but not quite as much)

Time for you to decide your favourite as the droids square up to the tee…

Henry Flint - more info (http://www.2000ad.org/?zone=droid&page=profiles&choice=henryf)

OR

Anthony Williams - more info (http://www.2000ad.org/?zone=droid&page=profiles&choice=ANTHONYW)

Remember for this tourney you have 5 votes to distribute as you please between these two artists, whole numbers only. So you can vote 5 - 0; 4 - 1; or 3 - 2; either way depending on how much more you like one artist's work over the other.

If you can’t be doing with that just name your favourite - remember bold tags, or other ways of highlighting always appreciated - and I’ll give them 3 votes and nowt to the other droid.

Three day votes, so this one ends morning of Saturday 12th June

Remember we only consider work for Tharg in these Tourneys

What the heck is all this about - well we have a thread for that (https://forums.2000ad.com/index.php?topic=47534.0)

How does this new voting work?  Look here (https://forums.2000ad.com/index.php?topic=47534.msg1059536#msg1059536) and why again? (https://forums.2000ad.com/index.php?topic=47534.msg1059557#msg1059557)

I don’t understand how this works, what are the rules of the Ryder Cup - yep got ya covered there too (https://forums.2000ad.com/index.php?topic=47534.msg1059595#msg1059595)

Anything else just ask and I’ll make something up. Most importantly have fun!

Two very different artists, who I think were both 'marmite' when they first showed up. Mr Flint has of course gone on to have the opportunity to put the pages in and develop into one of the most popular and skilled 2000AD artists. Mr Williams, on the other hand, has not had that opportunity *in the pages of the prog*. So for that, I have to split the vote from the Small Blue Jury thus:
Flint 3
Williams 2

But with the proviso that I wish we had seen more Williams over the years.

Henry is arguably the defining Dredd artist of the modern age, with so many iconic moments, including showing Joe's aging. I like Anthony's work, in its early days possibly a little too cartoony for my tastes.

Henry Flint 4, Anthony Williams 1.

5-0 to Flint.

I’ve genuinely no idea why he’s not the biggest thing in comics.

He his one off my favorite current artist and I am not a fan of Anthony's work (yes, I know he is a billions time better than me)

Flint 4 Williams 1

Mr Flint does a superb Dredd. Mr Williams is no slouch, don’t get me wrong, but this is a tough draw.

Flint 5, Williams 0 - my first whitewash I think. I do like Williams, especially on the VCs, but Flint is just astonishing, and in so many different styles over the years!

: Rogue Judge 09 June, 2021, 02:50:30 PM
Yeah...Flint all the way here

Henry Flint 5 - Anthony Williams 0

Williams cartoon style just doesn't do it for me against Flint's flawless art.

A clean sweep to Flint so Colin can sleep again at night!

I have kinda warmed to Williams’s cartoony style, especially on the VCs.

But you know, it’s Henry Flint, a man who can do no wrong; we are just blessed to have him in the Prog, evoking the best of McMahon and O’Neill whist doing his own thing.

5 nil to Henry.

For an explanation, see the thread I started once about how Henry is at least as good as and better than most the traditional "classic" Dredd artists.

Flint 5 - 0 Williams

Only a day on this one so get your votes in and I'll count up and announce the result in the morning.

My vote... well you know which way its going BUT its testament to how Anthony Williams developed in the Prog that I can't make this a clean sweep. I adore Henry Flint he is probably my favourite ever 2000ad artist and definately the definitive artist, his art capturing something of all the other greats. That said while I might not thing Anthony Williams art started fantastically he quickly developed into a good artist and then as he took on VCs (ironically from Henry Flint) and then moved to Sinister Dexter he had become a great artist. His 'cartoony' style counterpointed by a tough edge that worked perfectly for those strips. So on that basis I go:

Henry Flint 4 : Anthony Williams 1

VOTING CLOSED

Current Team needed this after Classic Team had taken a lead after an unbroken 5 tie run of victories and you folks needed it to redeemn yourself for the woeful treatment of the awesome Henry Flint, at least somewhat. It was a pretty straightforward victory, though I was heartened to see Anthony Willaims get his due.

As it is Current Team can make this a very exciting finish.

Current Team 13.5 : Classic Team 14.5

Current Team 1209 : Classic Team 1272*
