Flash: Time Flies page 21

One of the people who wrote to me about Seth said that what inspired him most was that Seth was not a lazy artist. He was willing to put in all the details that make the settings realistic, and not to skip out on the little things that might be boring to draw. I don't think any work of his shows that drive for completeness any more than Flash. Seth drew page after page of panels where the action takes place within and without this curved, ribbed architecture, in believable perspective, from many different angles, inside and outside, and nowhere did he resort to scratchy lines that merely suggested the ribbing. In each panel the architectural details are fully drawn, down to the finials and flourishes such as we can see under Steve's hand in the large panel on this page. A tour de force.
