It depends. For years I went to classes with people that generally weren’t very attractive. But the point isn’t about attractiveness in those instances. I mean the best drawings I’ve gotten from life drawing were actually heavyset older guys with a lot of detail in their faces. Plus I learned the most from those sessions. On that note though…

To be honest, I don’t know. I have heard several stories, and every female model has at least one bad experience. I didn’t see a nude woman in life drawing for months, since I started with male models for a while. A couple of my classmates years ago were not treating the situation professionally when she was there, but we yelled at them for it, because there is a time and place for guys to allow our hormones to admit our attractions, and that’s not one of them. The point is to learn to draw the body accurately, not admire it sexually, so it doesn’t matter. In fact the sessions I go to now we get sleek dancers and college girls that of course I find attractive, but it’s all shapes and shadows when they’re posing. Actually if anything I get more turned on when they come out from the changing room with their tight jeans on when they’re done.

But we haven’t had a man come in for like a year… and frankly I’m getting sick of drawing attractive girls, because there’s nothing much to it. If a guy gets giddy and stupid in a life drawing session, well… he’s unprofessional and should be thrown out. If you want to see hot, naked women you can’t touch anyway, the internet has a wealth of that, and they’ll even do crazy shit like have sex with animals. Seems a bit of a waste to pay 20 an hour for a flesh statue if you’re after porn. Hell, get good enough and you can draw your own porn.

    @ Anon 6:14 I’m not sure what to say except you’re being a bitch. First of all, if they’re younger, then yes, there’s no way to get around initial discomfort of the situation, because it is a new experience and most people are uncomfortable at first. Most guys get over it very quickly, and if not, any decent teacher will reprimand them or outright kick them out. The artistic mind will forget that it’s a naked body, and it will be perceived as I said: shapes and shadows. You should know this. …

    I think they’re not so much confused about any sagging, but the size and position. I mean, I don’t know how old she’s supposed to be in this picture based on wherever the manga is, but they are very large breasts for a girl of her frame. Not completely rare, of course, but she didn’t look that big in the anime unless my memory is just terrible. At life drawing there are models who actually refuse to go into positions like that, and I can only assume the reason is because they don’t like the way …

    And a stop-over in North of Minoc in Ultima Online, they’ll adjust the forest area where I leveled on deer and farmed for leather to now be a stage.

    Hatsune Miku in WOW…? I can just see her appear as this dimensional boss summoning and her vox’d notes each damage a specific class depending on the note as she sings, so she’d be a complete bitch of a boss because it depends what song she is singing how much damage she does to what players and how quickly.

    It wasn’t really very generic. The scenarios were generic that were covered in the show, but anyone who sat silently and let themselves blend into it found something there that really does last. Is it the greatest thing ever? Nope. But it sure was a lasting, memorable moment of seeing characters that didn’t seem to be created as an archetype just for the sake of an archetype. They were created for the sake of a personality, which quite honestly was and still is rather rare. Azumanga Daioh was …

    The best part of being an anime fan as long as I have is that I realize now beyond a shadow of a doubt that anyone who calls a series shit and does not have the ability, care, or intellect to expound on the statement is not only wrong, but worthless to whatever conversation that could have started anyway.

    Ah, crap… the virus has spread from the rural town to the city. Now she’ll have to go through 4-episode arcs and everyone will die in different ways repeatedly. Nipaaaa~!
