i don’t draw nudes too much anymore. i took years of nude figure drawing (models were nude, not i) so I’ve never needed to do it for myself much anymore. the only reason it came up with the gambit cover was because i wasn’t sure in the beginning how much of him was to be covered, so i wanted to figure out everything first correctly, and then put the sheet on top of him. I think it can be helpful, depending on context. but. the problem with drawing a figure nude first before you clothe them is that the human body isn’t shaped the same way with clothes on it. particularly I’m thinking about breasts. you can spend a lot of time trying to get the breasts with the right weight, and shape, and motion, but then you forget theres supposed to be a bra, which will entirely change the weight, the shape, and the motion. i think drawing a character nude first is great for getting proportions and angles correct, but it can be a tricky hole to fall down. it happens to be a fair bit, where you draw the figure in a way you end up really likely that you don’t want to clothe them at all. and no i don’t tend to find it distracting at all, because its just body parts. a dick is just a dick.
and thanks man! i never shy from talking about emma.
and i am a man of my word.
this was the sketch for all new xfactor no9. i had spent like a good 30 minutes trying to make the inside of the thighs work, that it felt weird just having a gap for his dick. so i drew the dick.
