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 is a bit of a representation, though. That part is not as clearly conveyed because as with most artistic works they don’t like to hold your hand through it. The fact that it can represent both elements of it being a comment on anime’s spiraling, and also some people interpreting it the other way, whether ironically or realistically, is mainly a mirror for you to perceive how you think of reality. For me it’s showing what could be for anyone in the otaku lifestyle, the blatant nature of the …

    Hey, look. It’s what Pokemon Snap should have been. The funniest part is I did game testing for D3, and I can already see what bugs would have to be looked for… and they would simultaneously be required to not be written up as clipping bugs, nor written up for ratings violations…

    For a time, and thanks largely to being introduced to Circle Kuusou Zikken’s One Piece Nami doujinshi, I consider Nami to be one of the hottest girls in anime. It evolved because she’s a great character at least as far as I have seen, and that rounded her out to be gorgeous for me. That is for much of the early style, Oda and the anime got rather strange over time, same with Bleach, everything stopped looking as good to me. But my entire perception of how hot she was was peppered by that …

    Okay, I admit, I did laugh pretty hard for some reason at the unabashed quick but steady degeneration into blatant hentai pics. Bravo for the creative and arousing pseudo-troll. You would not be arrested in the UK for this one.

  • Locodol Bouncy Bikini BD Extra:
    @ anon 23:59 That is partially true. Although there has been some truly excellent, original anime that has been created in the recent years too, so throwing the baby out with the bathwater is just a sad generalization. There may be many clones, but that is not limited to anime. It’s every genre, and plus the reality is the animes are not all that bad. The clones are here because it worked the first time. The only reason it didn’t keep working as well is because we’ve seen it before, it’s still …
