First of all sorry for the hiatus kinda thing, school's been a real pain, lots of tests, my job and also I joined a sports club. Currently I fell ill tho.
Now onto the main topic, having someone model for you.
So, portraits are my comfort zone. I usually draw from photographs but also have someone model for me regarding portraits. They usually hold a conversation with someone so it's a free enviroment where I don't make them stay entirely still.
Now this time is a different story. When the object of your affection in every way provides the inspiration, well then some anxiousness comes to my slightly more introverted self. Seeing a specific angle, how their body is situated, that inspires you and you get the urge to capture that.
Now I've been having this thought for a few days and it has driven up some anxiousness in me to ask. It would be the first time to have someone model for me and all the more worse/better that they would be in less clothes than casual (did I mention the object of my affection already?).
I don't go to an art school so I haven't actually gotten the priviledge of having people model with less than casual amount of clothes. The best has been a renessanss dressed girl or still life. Therefore I lack the previous expierience.
I asked them and they were delighted by the idea, but I haven't told them how I'd want them to model. Facing away from me so I can draw their exposed back. I have no idea why. Anyway, the clothing circumstances and various previously listed reasons has got me all excited and anxious,dreading and waiting simultaneously.
So, an additional question to top off my topic: Do you have any expierience on having people model for your art and if so, what is/was it like?
