Artists and non-artists alike…what do you think about this advice…

So I was checking my dashboard on Tumblr and I came across this, bits and snippets from “How to Draw Books” about how to draw women:

What do you think about this?

Personally, I’m a little annoyed that books made by supposedly great artists are telling budding artists to “Fuck diversity–you just want people to look pretty.” Is this what we want in art? I mean, it is art so some say it should be appealing eyes, but..why?

The book is just pigeon holed to a specific style. Which is comics? There’s tons of other ways to draw, those artists just publish books to make money.
