you know you’d think it’d be hard to lose giant 18” x 24” Newsprint Pads, but I lose them frequently
SO I FOUND ONE WITH LOTS OF MY ART FROM LIKE— 2 SEMESTERS AGO~ I’m very proud of them and they I think they boost my confidence ; v ;
I’ll upload the pics~
About Drawing Nudes
Every time I talk to people about my life-drawing class, I’m usually asked, “Oh my god, are they really naked? You have to draw all that ?”
Granted some of the time it’s joking, but I think it’s something to talk about.
For the first 9 weeks of the class I got really tired of drawing naked elderly people. I was tired of looking at the genitals. But in recent weeks I’ve become more invested in drawing every single thing, because goddammit, the body is really cool. I don’t care if I have to look at a penis all day, or if I have to draw a woman’s genitals because I got a really awkward angle— Everything in that class has desexualized the human form, at least when I’m drawing it, I don’t have to focus on “oh man this is awkward…” “oh god I can’t look at that…”
I really don’t focus on those things—I get so lost in the drawing process that I forget what I’m doing or looking at.
so when I’m asked, “How do you draw naked people all day?”, I don’t really know how to answer them.
by desensitizing myself to something that’s honestly not all that sexual? By simply trying to improve my understanding of anatomy and how to draw the human figure in a more precise manner?
Maybe I’m just being oversensitive about some silly questions, but I’ve been asked it so many times now, that I feel like I need to have a serious answer.
