Oh my GOD IT IS SO TRUE! I’m an artist and a life model as well. I freaking love to be paid to expose myself. And I just love doing what I want to draw because I know everyone will love it. YEESSSSS!
I love this one! I feel this way most of the time when I model for a class, but there is the occasional class or gig where I feel objectified and strongly feel the class difference between me and the students. Most of the time, though, its awesome.
Is it awkward if a guy model gets a boner because of, say, a pretty girl in the room, or whatever else the mind wanders to?
Hah! Her hoo-hah is saying hoo-hah! Love it
Speaking of awkward, Xu-kitty, as a life drawing student I never had a male model get a boner, but we did have one that had some kind of penis problem. His penis was leaking some kind of stretchy fluid. And by stretchy, I mean he had a 6 to 12 inch strand of fluid dangling out of his penis. Talk about awkward, nobody said anything, but I know everyone saw it. STD perhaps?
Hahaha, that’s pretty cool! So full of energy!
To BethJoyD, most likely the guy was jerking off before the modeling session in order to prevent getting an erection during, and it was just some fluid from that dribbling out a bit later.
One thing I notice a lot that girls don’t get, is guys are dribbly. Females have like a 1 inch tube between bladder and exit, and for guys it is 6-8 inches or more. It takes a bit of time and gravity to clear things out all the way.
I keep hearing of how awkward it’d be for a male life-model to get an erection while they’re trying to draw him, which is part of why I’d not do it (linoleum can give me one, lol). Poor guy with the drippiness though… hope for his sake it just looked like an STD and wasn’t one (doubt he picked up an girls from that session, lol).
By far, my favorite part is that poop sketch in the first frame. I used to do those ALL the time!
