"AHL BE BAHCK... BUT NAHT BECAUSE I LIEK YOU OR ANYTHING."
I think the biggest nock against him would be less that he's sexist and more that he caters to a sexist culture. His books just parrot what's popular in various mediums, and skinny, curvy women are popular in most comics and cartoons. He's certainly not helping to change the culture, but accusing him of being the spawning point of all that is sexist and/or crappy about comics isn't fair either.

blankd wrote:NO. I'm sorry but I'm going to have to disagree due to the fact he has an exceptionally poor grasp of nearly everything art-related. There are some aspects he presents in a mediocre fashion (if I were to be exceptionally generous) but in those cases why not spend the exact same money on books that actually know what they're talking about?
IVstudios wrote:His stuff isn't great, but it's fine. It's well organized, easy to read and easy to understand. Of course there are better books out there. There is always a better book, but you start in preschool, not college and you start with mediocre how-to-draw books, not Anatomy for the Artist.
Snuffan wrote:So yes, in conclusion, saying that "if someone can see what you've drawn then it's good" is FAR from correct. The opinions on this topic rages around in every direction and changes constantly. The two main questions are: Does good/bad art exist? and what is good/bad art and why?
