* Often done intentionally with the length of Franchise/{{Batman}}'s cape. Under normal circumstances, it's just long enough to reach the floor when wrapped around him like a cloak for his famous "looking like a scary gargoyle" pose. Other times the artists can't resist having the wind dramatically blow it out, making it look like it should drag several feet behind him. At least one official DCComics "How to Draw" book instructs people on how to do this without it looking ''too'' absurd.

* Artists Randy Elliott and Stuart Sayger received much criticism for their work on {{LEGO}}'s ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}'' comics. Randy notoriously drew humongous shoulders on many of his characters, sometimes gave them very small and thin heads, and in the case of two of the Toa Metru gave them obscuring visors instead of bothering to draw their eyes (which weren't even the right colours). Sayger, on the other hand, practiced a unique, sketchy style which -- while probably very serviceable in any other work -- simply did not work well with the types of intricate character designs present in ''BIONICLE''. This was especially obvious in "All Our Sins Remembered," which presented a jarring contrast between the beautifully rendered element lords and his characteristically stringy, weirdly proportioned designs for the other characters. He proportioned the characters in so many different ways that a whole OffModel gallery could be filled with them. And in one instance, he literally used the wrong model for a certain character -- instead of Mata Nui's correct, originally planet-sized, bulky and blocky robot body, he drew the mortal form that he took on one hundred thousand years later, which (apart from also being a humanoid) looked absolutely nothing like his former body.

Added DiffLines:

** The G2 graphic novels simplify the character models rather inconsistently, even confusing their colors at times and placing Vizuna's sensor "tails" on his arms instead of his ankles. Most confusion though surrounds the first novel's depiction of the Mask of Time: seemingly an early stock image of the original G1 mask crudely pasted into the comic, clashing with both the general art style and the text describing the mask. The second graphic novel featured the correct design.

* In the 70's, DC was so obsessed with keeping Superman's look consistent across comics and merchandise that they had their artists redraw Superman's face in all of Jack Kirby's Fourth World books. Kirby, a legend in the comics business, drew in his usual style which was too OffModel for DC.

* Humberto Ramos' run on ''{{Runaways}}'' started out with dodgy art (his renditions of Nico Minoru were especially hideous), but got somewhat better.

* RobLiefeld's artwork is frequently, and rightfully, accused of this, as his highly stylized art often deviates from the model sheets used by other artists.

** Also from the first issue, in the single panel Kid Flash appears in, he manages to have short blonde hair instead of brown AnimeHair; and the Flash's ChestInsignia [[CaptainObvious on his chest]] when he not only doesn't ''have'' the logo there, but the version on his costume is flipped.
