Review : Another former student weighs in…
I was fortunate to be one the many students of Hogarth when he taught figure drawing in Los Angeles. He was a remarkable teacher, and his drawing style, and teaching style, is certainly “dynamic”. All his books are great, but “Dynamic Figure Drawing” is a particular favorite. While you may find Hogarth’s comic book roots not to your taste (and you don’t want to have your art look too “Hogarth”) – don’t deprive yourself of his books. He has much to offer, and many details about the figure that are very valuable. My drawing has been forever impacted and improved because of what he taught me – in class and from his books.
Just because you absorb much from his books (and you will) it doesn’t follow that you will adopt his “comic book” style as well. Learn from him, and many other artists’ works, and consider yourself well-rounded!
