    why would someone have a crush on a life drawing model? xD just cause his/her nakedness? come on...

    You wouldn't be the first artist in this position... historically, not personally, speaking.

    No, but I did do a nude drawing of someone I had a crush on once.

    well i used to be in figure drawin and there was a hot guy and 99.9% of the students were girls. i'll tell you something: these girls came voluntarily. it wasnt required for class or anything LOL

    me and this other guy were the only guys there and we're straight as fuck!!!


    oh and then i always planned to draw my former girlfriend but every time she was naked i ended up doing her instead

    No. God no. All our nude models were hideous.
    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    You don't have a crush on 'something' you have a crush on 'someone'.

    You are sexually attracted, nothing wrong with that. Distinguish between love and sex, it will save you heartache.

    Well she is clothed so it played down the creepyness a bit. I just found it really easy to talk to her, at least it was obvious she liked talking to me. I have, hmm 46 more hours of class time with her, oh no.

    No, but I found the 70s porno mustache guy highlighy entertaining. I now think all male models should cultivate crazy facial hair.

    Heh, most people end up drawing very... real models. However one live drawing meet I commonly went to would have very attractive women (and a few moonlighting strippers). Needless to say, crushes were common place.

    My school asked for volunteers for life drawing models and I was always too scared to do it, because you know, what if I got a boner. I would have been wearing boxers, but still, all that air blowing around. And that fact that 20 girls would have been drawing my lines...

    If a boner happens, tell them they can use it to learn. Problem? Solved.

    I wouldn't say a crush was in order, but Damn there were three very specific models who gave me a new appreciation for the Beauty of Dawkin's creation. I wanted to draw their faces more than their whole figure, mind you their figures were fantastic too.

    There's a really beautiful girl who models at my school occasionally. I've gotten to draw (and sculpt, actually) her a few different times. I don't have a crush, per say, but I'm certainly struck by her beauty. I've never talked to her though.

    I once had a model stare at me the entire session. She comes up to me at the end and says, "Sorry I was staring so much at you...it's just that you look EXACTLY like the man I used to love."
