    Need Natural nudity references

    Hi guys,
    I'm searching about photo referencies on nudes.
    There are a lot of nude referencies on the net but what I'm searching for is natural poses like simply standing, or similar because referencise you can find on the net are always like contorsionist poses!
    Thank you for every link or suggestion

    Was going to suggest the same as Armand. Strip off in front of a mirror!

    But also check out Deviantarts resources->stock images->models and all the sub-categories therein.

    Doesn't anyone hit on chicks/dudes by asking them to model for them any more?

    Here you go:Pose Space and Live Model books

    What would Caravaggio do?

    The best thing I think I did for my self was Google Life Drawing classes in Google with my city name behind it.

    5 dollars every 2 Tuesdays for 3 hours of poses. Find one of these gatherings.

    Its worth it to find one because:
    It gets you out of the house.
    It gets you mingling with other artists beyond a computer screen, which is awesome.
    You get to see/draw boobs in real life.
    In the end, you gain some drawing experience points that you can spend on your skills.

    Freaking do it man.

    Just beware of the dangers that lie on that site. What has been seen cannot be unseen.

    I'll be straight up honest with you...people that make it in art don't have excuses. Period. J.R.Hollis and dpaint are right on the money - find some life drawing sessions or classes in your area and enroll. If you can't manage that you won't likely get very far as an artist. Not being harsh - just being real.

    Concurring with what Maestro Jeff and others said, nothing beats drawing -real- life. But...

    I really don't know what you consider to be a natural pose then? You said people standing, I just did a search on DA now and found tons...

    I thought that was only reserved for the most charming and dashing artist tropes in film?

    I did actually make a post asking if anyone wanted to volunteer, the response was universally 'why can't you just look on the internet?'

    It's tough to explain the difference between life reference and photo reference, so I just left it at that.

    DA can be tricky, it's great that the resources are free, but most of the poses are quite forced looking, and usually overly sexual. I tend to get annoyed because a lot of women wear heels in nude shoots too. Life drawing is the obvious answer, and if there's a drought in your area (as there is in mine currently) start a sketch circle with friends and take turns posing clothed, it's better than nothing! Weight distribution is the same clothed or nude

    Hire a model? Or compensate your girlfriend to pose. She should understand.
