Speaking of Horrible How-to-Draw Books....
These are from Drawing Dynamic Comics, by Andy Smith.
I look at this and I think about the model. She’s absorbed the messages all girls do. Gotta be thin gotta be pretty gotta be thin and pretty. So she’s been recruited as a model for this guy, she’s so pretty.
And then the artist is like NOPE GOTTA BE SKINNIER AND PRETTIER THAN THAT.
It’s sad that a skinny model isn’t good enough for him, especially since cinching in her waist and inflating her breasts doesn’t make her seem more powerful or anything. Also, he boob floundered her in that last picture. And yes, it’s the style of the industry, but that says a lot about the industry and the norms of how women are drawn and portrayed.
On second look, I also love how she’s in a bra, and he drew a nipple onto the first picture. xD
