My sister will be happy to know that I’ve been subjected to dude nudity for the last two classes, but today’s class was unusual because it featured two models, one of each gender, alternating poses. The teacher lectured on the structural differences between men and women.
I’ve signed on to this class for another quarter. I think it’s really helped me out, even with my cartoons; I’m no longer apprehensive about drawing a person in motion. Luckily cartoons don’t have to be anatomically perfect, but the important thing is, I don’t need a reference to, say, draw Mary reaching excitedly for her UPS box. In the past, I might have scoured the internet for someone in the exact pose I wanted to draw, or just picked an easier pose.
