That little tutorial is a terribly unfortunate look into the artist's mindset.

"The essential character of the female form is roundness, so I begin with the roundest parts..."

Someone pointed once that the best way to understand sexism in superhero comics is to read the text of those howto-draw manuals.

Please tell me that how-to is a joke or parody. Please? Lie to me if you must. >_<

I mean... "All feminine fashions accentuate the figure, so begin by concentrating on the body. Just the body. No clothes." etc. While most artists do end up with a better end result by beginning with the body and then adding the clothing (real clothing, dammit, not always just freaking body paint!), in order to make sure the underlying anatomy beneath the clothes is correct, the particular line of thinking as detailed in the upper right of the image is just messed up. I guess that makes all of my cute, flowing, loosely-fitted sundresses masculine by default, doesn't it, despite the compliments I've gotten about looking pretty in them? ...Can I stick one of them on this guy, then, since clearly it's not feminine fashion (/sarcasm), and therefore couldn't possibly offend his poor, delicate sensibilities?

(Also: Those nipples. Dear Lord.)
