tyleramato said: Hello! I an aspiring VD artist absolutely in love with your figure drawings! I had live models in college but now I'm in a new city with no nude drawing classes anywhere. Is it okay to practice from still photos? I'm always worried studios will recognize a pose or something and consider it cutting corners or something...
If you don’t have access to live models drawing sessions, I would strongly suggest to draw at cafes, parks, etc. Any public place, really. This is something I should do more myself, to be honest. Nothing’s better than catching real people doing real things, not posing. Nude life drawing sessions are great for a lot of things, but they lack the spontaneity of real life situations. Drawing from picture reference isn’t bad, but real life beats everything else.
Following the tip of the masters!!!
