This was the first and ONLY time that has ever happened. But yes, life drawing is awesome!!! I need to get into some more classes...

ALSO! In case this comic gets flagged as mature (though I'm pretty sure nekkid bums are allowed) it's also posted over on [link]

And in case you were curious, here's a collection of some of my figure drawings from earlier this year

I can remember our first guy. He was ugly like hell but he had an ENORMOUS dick! Noone giggled, but there WERE a few blushes...
PickledAlice Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2011  Student Digital Artist
happened to me about a year ago, the first model we had was a female and I didn't giggle at all or anything cause im a girl, she's a girl what ever.
But when the next model was a guy I almost fell off my drawing horse with giggles.

My first nude model was a super old man...took me so long to get over the nekkid...(also didn't help that the teacher told us to think of him like wrinkly drapes')

laughed so hard when i read this XD

Lol, my friend has been trying to get me to go with her to a life-drawing class XD She insists that they aren't that bad, but I just keep insisting that I am certainly not mature enough and I would do exactly what happened in this comic. XD

Iiiiiiii still do that. It's just learning to make it internal. I'm 21 btw though most people seem to think I'm closer to 30 by way of my behavior and such.
Even when I was an art class model for a stint I had a hard time not giggling. And I was the one on the pedestal/stage/model display thing! :XD:
PetiteLaSouris Featured By Owner May 14, 2011
that was my exact reaction in my first life drawing class. It was my first year of university XP
Twilightzonegirl13 Featured By Owner May 13, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Haha i would have probably ran out of the room haha
xAngelxofxdeathx Featured By Owner May 2, 2011  Student General Artist
Nude drawings are sooooo awkward the first time. I just took my first college drawing class working with nude models, still gotta get used to it. Would have been nice if the first model we had was a girl, that would have made it a bit easier for me...but no.
I dont laugh or anything I just feel really really awkward and sometimes want to leave the room.
Malpropre Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2011
Ahhh, I remember my first life drawing class.

I was 16, and in our *~art school~* that's when we started drawing nudes. But really, I remember the shock, slight embarassemenT (OH NO WHERE DO I LOOK OH SHIT DO I REALLY HAVE TO DRAW HER TITS OH GOD) , and then the joy of drawing.
supremesorceress Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2011
BWAAHAHHAHAHHHAAA!!!! that was totally me in my first Life Drawing class. Oh deaaaaaarrr. hahahaha
wolfrunner326 Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I don't think I'll EVER be mature for these classes. The only reason being I would too laugh my head off :D.

Is it bad that I just giggled at this like a little girl? Well, guess my art career is over. XD LOL
faux-brains Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2011  Student Artist
I'd do just that. But it'd be so much worse cuz I'm actually really good friends with the model for those classes XD
KelsMcQuillen Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
this is ALMOST what happened at my figure drawing class today. It is my second day, but the first day we had a female model so it was ok. But when the model stepped up today.. i almost giggled and i felt myself smile a little.
doodlediddy Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2011
:) My favorite is the first day of life drawing classes watching kids trying not to do this.

lucidAbstraction Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2011  Student Photographer
It's totally a right of passage for any art student. Trying our hardest not to laugh or blush: focus focus ... shit don't look directly it! haha...

Think the worse was when i was late, got in to the class, set up, then look properly at the model to see this girl I've use to fancy, in all her glory. I was a bit flushed at first. But i think i did my best work in those few months with her as the model.

But there is nothing better than the feeling of every one concentrating on there art and being totally focus on you work to produce something you prod of.Very therapeutic, if a tad stressful when it doesn't quite go right. :D

Oh my god. Oh my god. The facial expressions nearly KILLED me. You, madam, are an entirely different kind of artistic genius.

...Also, blue armpit hair. Gigglesnort.

this made me laugh so much! The first time drawing a nude lady or person, wasn't really sure how to respond. No real outburst, but...just awkward that's all. It's amazin that you laughed aloud. But really, nudity is nothing....really...
Roozke112 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
haha, i was going to something like that with a friend of mine, he almost got a hearth attack and i was like. okay.. jippaj let's draw the dude. but afterwards they didn't want my friend to come back.. soo i also leaved, i felt sorry for him xD

*attempts to be mature*

If that were to happen to me, I'd either burst out laughing or be scared for life D:

I'll be honest.

alien-cat Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This actually made me laugh out loud because of how accurate it is. When I first drew men in an anatomy class, it felt more awkward than anything... however, I quickly got used to drawing them.
OrenAsher Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2010
ROFL! Oh my god, that's so funny! :lmao: What's great, too, is that the model is totally not drawn sexy at all! He looks like a good guy, but then he's posing awkwardly and his armpit hair is doing something RIDICULOUS!!!

THIS IS AWESOME!! Thanks for starting my day off with a good laugh! :clap:
ayuICHI Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
LOL. I went to the only high school in the U.S. with an anatomy class that featured nude models, they were all old and stuff. XP I remember a lot of the boys being red-faced the first time we had a female model.

In other words, I totally understand. <3

I forgot my glasses at home the first time we drew a guy naked, so I didn't see too much. XD I'm not sure if I am to be sad or happy.
chibiartstudios Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2010
This is everyone's reaction at first. Strangely enough though, after a few classes you're in such a hurry to get things done in time you almost don't notice the dong anymore.

This reminds me of year 8 and "Reproduction". I fell off the chair laughing, and pretty much got a zero for the topic.
Oba-san Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2010
omg I remembered my first day....

same sort of aruptness...i look down for a second and then up ...and golly :XD:

and i ended up being distracted by the model's twitchy butt
