There are artists, like Art Adams, Brian Bolland, Russ Heath Bernie Wrightson or Ken Nolan, for example, who are more controlled, need that control to achieve excellence, and wisely limit their output in order to maintain their level of quality.
Tony Salmons is not part of this group; his whole strategy seems to be about throwing away control. This can sometimes backfire as seen by that ugly cigar holding claw in Panel 6 which bugs the hell out of me every time I see it.

This is page 11 from issue #3 of "The Strange Adventures of H. P. Lovecraft”, illustrated by Tony Salmons.
