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 …

    That too is wrong. Fate/Stay Night told a superb story as a visual novel. Trying to pretend that just because they have images of the characters it can’t be a deeper plot has been proven repeatedly to be incorrect. If you are saying you intentionally want bland, then that’s why they get away with it. I like cute girls, but it’s so empty and pointless. Have they actually done anything in all these games that makes a contiguous world where the games have anything to do with each other and grown …

    Here’s my problem. People allowing forgiveness for something that has nothing to do with studio size and thinking that being a small studio is forgivable for pointless storyline and laziness. Moe can exist alongside creativity and amusement. Don’t foolishly think it’s either Indy or Witcher 3, that’s not reality. You can make it better than that and it really takes not much effort for even a partially decent professional writer. I could have even woken up from a 2 hour night sleep and written …

  • Final Fantasy XV Pre-Order DLC Previewed:
    Not yet. Still the best companies recognize the base game must be solid, and the DLC is just peripheral. Tales games are all outfits. Mass Effect’s DLC for example is something I more than was happy to purchase for $14.99, I never thought I’d say that, but its Citadel DLC was not a core part of the main game in any form, it was entirely a filler arc, but was the funniest shit I’ve ever seen, using every running gag formed in the entire trilogy brilliantly. That shit deserves my money any day.

  • Four Goddesses Online: “Neptune Returns!”:
    So legitimate question. Are these really at all decent? And I don’t mean cute girls or anything like that, I played the first one and platinumed it just because I do that. But it was essentially a chore by the end rather than an accomplishment. Compile Hearts games have by and large seemed barren of creativity or purpose. I can understand treating them as sort of visual novel with gameplay possibly for enjoyment, but have they sincerely and objectively become games with at least decent plots …

  • Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Massacred by Censors:
    People who blurt the term SJW for everything are starting to piss me off as much as the people who fit the stereotype that term has been overused to represent. Let me spell it out, nothing has changed in the past 10 years in this regard. They censored it because of the rating it could have due to bare breasts being suggestively put in place for a teen based game. Whether you agree or not, blaming a useless acronym is just laziness and stupidity, the same level of laziness and stupidity that the …
