Need Natural nudity references
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.

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.

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.

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
