  2. john says:

    This is an impressive collection on multiple poses and a very good show works by models.
    These could be put into a book.

    Excellent range and style of poses.
    Good use of props by models.
    Particularly taken with the flexibility achieved by Aubrey in some of her poses.
    Most striking and impressive.

    An excellent range of natural physiques and poses; also a grim exhibition on the folly of tattoos.

  14. Tejbha singh says:

    These model’s picture are very very useful and important for an artist.

  15. Tejbhan singh says:

    Very very useful pics.

  16. Regan says:

    Most of the models are white, and, while there is more than one body type, they’re all generally the same – it would be nice if you expanded on that! 🙂

    • admin says:

      That is a fair comment. Initially, when I began posting these pose photos, I included all the photographs for all models that were available to me. This did provide a desired diversity of body types, ages, genders, and nationalities, although it did result in mostly white and mostly female models. As I developed relationships with more sites that allowed me to post model photos, I have been working to expand this portfolio to include more males and more asian, latin, and black representation. I would offer even more representation, but I want to make sure I don’t reach the limit of the number of photos I can post on this site before proceeding.

  17. GM says:

    I’ve never seen such HORRIBLE UNNATURAL POSES in my life! This entire site doesn’t have one pose I’d ever use in painting. The bodies are tortured and totally unnatural in every single pose. Yuk!

    • admin says:

      Many of these poses are more of the short, dynamic gesture type used for warm ups at the beginning of a life drawing session. However, I think its fair to say that among these thousands of poses there are many (albeit a minority) that are natural. The poses provided here are re-published with permission from the following figurative art websites: Croquis Café, Life Model Books LLC, and New Masters Academy.

  18. Chad Potchana says:

    These pictures are very helpful for studying gesture and construction. It would be convenient if there was a “download all” button.

  19. Juan Aguasito Jr. says:

    Can i use the model poses to my paintings?
