This image really appeals to me. Perhaps because I spend all day every Mondays drawing an unclothed human body in life drawing class, and I have been trying to get the proportions correct. I struggle a bit. It seems like each pose I do has only one bit that I am happy with. No, I can't put them all together, but a kind thought, thank you. They are all different poses. It would look really weird.
But back to the image. I suppose I should be glad of the smooth skin of our models. This looks a lot harder to draw.


  1. That's an impressive model. Even I can see that drawing it would be a huge challenge. Huger even than a real human. Huger than huge in fact. And that's HUGE.

  2. Sorry. Can't top that one.

  3. You know these naked models that you have to draw so carefully? Would it be possible to post a few photos of them for aesthetic interest? (However, may I also request that you omit any male models)

  4. Yes, YP, I know those naked models. It would indeed be possible to post a few photos. Almost anything's possible. And you may indeed request I omit the males.

    Although you may have been more hopeful than serious, I'll call your bluff and see what I have that would be suitable for this family blog. Do you want the extremely old lady or the very obese lady? Nah just joking again.

  5. Clive??? Bette??? Is that you???

  6. Looks like the Rolls Royce version of C3PO from the Star Wars movies, or at least C3POs cuzzie bro.

  7. Clive? Bette? Sorry Robert, I'm lost.

    Alden, yes!
