Welcome to Gaia! ::

I hope X-Gaians are like the X-Men.

But seriously, I think recycling cropped copies of exact same images was in bad taste. They should have just produced a new survey entirely. One that doesn't remind people of last week's shitstorm, or contain uncredited art. It's not that hard to include a name when you grab an image.

A is by GabiBarbosa.
B is by Stefanie Achtnig.
C is Bruce Tim. (Can't remember where the original image is.)
E is by blitzcadet.
I is Adam Hughes.

Bad, bad taste.
Did Gaia even contact the artists to ask if they could use the art?

I hope they got permission to use the art in the survey. But probably not...

It doesn't seem very professional to use other people's work and crop them...

yeah.. well these surveys are 3rd party expect it.
I have to agree with everyone who said that it looks unprofessional.

I also have to think that it unintentionally skews votes towards the people who are familiar with Catwoman, and their first (or best) impression of the character. I mean, if I had to make a selection, I'd choose this Catwoman because that's the Catwoman who was in the comics when I started reading them. Since that wasn't a choice, I'd be choosing C. (art from Batman: The Animated Series) or B. (looks like Powerpuff Girls style).

What Gaia really should've done was create their own art for the survey - that way, people reviewing the survey wouldn't be skewed towards a particular artist's style (when you don't have the artist on staff) or particular costume rather than a particular art direction. Plus, we'd be getting examples of the sort of art we'd see on the new site.

I'm kinda not exactly sober right now. So, if I do that, will it make you not depressed?
