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 …

    I laughed reeeeally hard at the picture for Battery being a guy holding up his fist. Not sure if that was intentional, but if it was, thank you. It was appreciated.

  • Action Pose Artbook “Sketch Half-Naked Men!”:
    These books aren’t for anatomy, more like dynamism and posing reference. If anything it helps with muscle shapes rather than proportion. As always the issue with still images is they flatten the three-dimensionality. If anything it’s beyond worth it for the suits and folds. A youtube video or movie will have motion blur so it too works overall for poses, but in terms of dynamic folds being caught in a still, these are far superior. It all depends on how they’re used really.

  • Action Pose Artbook “Sketch Half-Naked Men!”:
    No ‘still’ about it, only an idiot would consider this just ‘drawing half naked men.’ This book looks absolutely amazing. To be able to catch that much dynamism in motion in still real life pictures is absolutely a feat worthy of praise. I am definitely buying this, I’m already inspired to draw from some of these poses right now.

    Even better, if you care enough to have an opinion, then anyone who has the desire to type an opinion yet defines their position by context-less acronyms is worthless to listen to. The counter to the regulation argument is the industry regulations would have to accommodate the rather ridiculous type of JAV that exist so they can continue to explore without becoming too constrictive on ‘creativity’ as long as the actors/actresses are considered properly. This I find difficult to point to the JAV …

    I would prefer a long but certain wait over a rushed and questionable execution. There is no question of popularity, so now it’s just up to our wallets to continue proving it and season 2 is ours.
