Rejoice art students! No more searching porn sites for reasonable nude model source material. Join Figures and Forms, and you’ll have access to thousands high res photos of nudes for a $100 a year. A useful service for those studying drawing — I would have used the site myself had it been around when I was last in art school — though I would have also lamented its creepiness. Advertising the availability of nudes at 2 am, Form and Figures provides at least a few images that should be treated in much the same way as porn before they make suitable classroom material. AFC recommendation: Render all erect and semi-erect penises as though flaccid. This advice is contingent upon the teacher of course, but to be safe, we advise students err on the side of caution. Also, the chore will show off your imagination and skill with pencil and charcoal. A few top picks for new student renderings after the jump.
