question - The art of Thornwolf — LiveJournal
Is it perverted for me to really wish someone would pose nude for me for my own drawings outside of class? Bathing suits are fine too. =( I don't have mirror that can rest on the floor so that's out. *sigh*
I just really hate making stuff up all the time and having to double check it over and over and use the same bland poses I know how to draw from memory.

I myself am comfy with a bikini, so that wouldn't be a prob if you needed someone to pose. Boop!

Come over and I'll give you a lapdance. LOL I kid I kid..Thorny don't swing that way =>

whats funny about that is ive noticed they don't make one pieces for people our age anymore..only for old ladies with saggy boobs. the bathingsuits themselves have shoulderpads..wtf?

not to mention, the less material it takes to make the bathingsuit itself, the more expensive it is. =P

If you can find a model amenable to that, then by all means go ahead. Drive on!. The more practice the better.

OMG!!! I thought you just wanted HAWK KAT PR0N!!!!111

Like I said, if my swimsuit still fits, I'll see what I can do ^_^ Although, I know you just want pics of me to start your new "chics with cellulite" pr0n site, right? ;)

You likely would have to use a person unacustomed to being a body model, but it seems a few people have no problems with it. I tried years ago in a college art class, just to do it, since there were no male models in our area willing to show off. I'm nowhere near phsyical perfection, but you know what? You only live once.

Nothing beats a nude figure for drawing, since anything else can be distorted by clothing, or pull the skin wrong. Ask people, see what they are willing to do for you. There is an inherent beauty in the nude body that a good artist can take advantage of, exploring how it is really put together on its' own. Good luck in finding a willing model; the results are always worth it, from my experience. Clothing--even a little--is distracting to the eye when you're looking for the body itself.

I wouldn't consider it perverted at all. I dunno if you want male or female models, but I'd be willing down to boxers . Alas I am in Ohio and unhelpful anyway.

Thanks Joey, but I think right now I'd prefer females, just because I have a lot of ideas for female oriented pictures. If I need a male model I'm thinking of coaxing Tavis, but we'll see. =D

*laughs* I forgot about that. Well, if you need a really scrawny guy model, then ;)

If you need a comfortable male nude, Cro's willing. He's got a nice body with really good muscle definintion, I figure it's easy to see anatomy on someone who's built like him anyway, and we want to come down for visities anyway...

...soon hopefully. Argh.

So, just lemme know!

Nothing perverted about that at all.. I've been in several artist groups where we have all taken turns posing for figure studies.

Perverted? Hon, you're an artist! It's not perverted for you to want anyone to pose nude for you so that you can get the pose accurate. Anyone that would dare suggest that you were perverted for wanting to do such a thing has to reevaluate what an artist is and does.

most people don't realize its not a sexual thing for an artist to ask you to pose for them. I don't know why people get so bent outta shape..but then again, I hang around artsy people all day long =P

So do I, and I love the nude body, so I actually have a hard time trying to understand why other people are modest, ashamed of it, or just plain don't want to see it. I mean, what they are hiding exactly? They've seen people in bikinis in the summer, and nudity isn't far from that at all!

I don't think that's perverted o_o
Heck, I wish I had any model at all, nude or not, but any art class around here is either for kids under 12 or adults over 18 x_x
