I just laughed out loud at that. I'm a little surprised I even got your reference given I never liked that show.

I think it's the same thing where if we were to draw an Asian we might make their eyes too pointy. XD

I take it most of the critics on here don't read manga. The drawing style isn't generally supposed to be photo-realistic. I recognized it as Steve immediately, but I sorta have a mental filter for manga-style images.

The face on that is far too small - clearly completely unrealistic

Oh come on; you know drawing, especially stylised drawing, is the artist's choice of symbols and signifiers arranged so as to evoke (perhaps unconsciously) a response or tell a story or represent something. In your case, the aims of life drawing are rather different to the aims of a comic-book / graphic novel artist.

What does the bull-neck signify? My guess is that she intends it to evoke Job's famously stubborn nature. I could be wrong. But she clearly hasn't made the neck so thick by pure accident.
