internet 'life' drawing

the extraordinary japanese site posemaniacs offers
thousands of figures that can easily be turned 360 degrees
as well as an option for random poses for ten to ninety seconds.
There's even a free iphone app.
As a stay at home sketching option it's hard to beat
unless you have a live in model.
in which case, good on ya.

  2. Judy - these are wonderful - so lively - great pen lines! They almost don't look like posemaniac models because you've added your own style.

  4. This are great!! I know, because I have wrestled with Posemaniacs. I need to do it more often. Check out David Vallejo's new post - he links to a great site with photographs of models, that I had never heard of.

  6. That's an interesting concept : )

    Lovely sketches!

    Sometimes I just go to google images when I'm stymied for a pose...

  7. Great style to your sketches. Love the energy and color. You can't tell they are not frm live models because of how you breathed your creative energy into them. Well done. Also, thanks for the site tip. It should make for some good practice and study.

  10. These are really great - as good as if you had a live model. The added colour is super.
