O K, so you want to draw nudes?  Best way to start is to see what the old masters were doing in their figure studies and copy some of their work.  These two are after Jean Aguste Ingres.  One of my favorite French artists

One more while we’re on a roll.

You’ll have to forgive the bad Photo-shopping.  But you get the general idea.  What’s interesting is how aesthetics have changed over time, and how different the ideal of the feminine  in the 17th century was versus the grotesque, hyper inflated (implant laden) forms of today.

  1. You’re in good company, Hansi. Van Gogh used to copy Ingres’s drawings for practice too.

  2. I’ma fan of Vargas girls art.Video game women are sexy too.
