    I was working with a models and I didn’t have enough time to complete my piece. I found this website looking for references. I didn’t find exact pose, since it was useful and I’m going to use it in a future. Thanks!

  2. Jonathan says:

    Fantastically useful! I shall take this to our Lfe painting/draing group to bring it some fresh ideas. Our models have seemed rather pedestrian recently. Mind you an awful lot of these poses could’t beheld for more than 5 minutes! Looks like we’llbeen doing adeal of speed work.

  3. Yutta says:

    The reference photos here are brilliant – they are a good size and beautifully photographed. The poses are excellent and I love the fact that there is a lovely selection of fuller figured models and also models without tattoos (call me old-fashioned but I find tattoos distracting).

  4. Javier Gutiérrez says:

    Unas modelos fantásticas y las poses son maravillosas. Muchas gracias, ya que así he podido coger nuevas ideas para pintar y fotografiar. Fantástico trabajo. Felicidades.

  5. joe says:

    Ive been using and browsing this site for quite some time now but if the models are used for painting they are fantastic. But if they are used for round work in sculptor (like I do) they are somewhat useless cos they show only one side. Can’t something been done to help others like me?

    Tks for all the good work.

  6. Leigh says:

    This whole site is so wonderful! Thank you so much for this, and all your work putting it together. A lot of the poses are going to be more of a challenge for me, because of the slight foreshortening on so many of them.
    Thanks!

    Living remote in Northern Thailand it is al but impossable to find modles without defying local taboos. Thank you for allowing my continued figure drawing practice (began in California 1978).
    Muchas Gracious!
