Chibi Nudity!

Leonardo seems a bit upbeat, judging from the video. Or at least, he seems into what he does (which makes sense).


There are stories of artists gypping corpses for anatomical reference.

During the 18th century, they literally tied the model in place for 8 hours or so... no food or breaks... and men got paid a shilling or two while women were paid a guinea (8 shillings to the best of my knowledge).

Nowadays a nude model is at least $20 and hour with breaks. @_@

I'm probably the only nerdy artist who finds this fascinating...

Burke and Hare killed a prositute once and the guy who they were selling the bodies to (who used them for anatomy classes normally) decided he liked her so much he'd use her as a *albeit somwhat dead* model. Thats part of how they were ofund out.

little bit of a factoid for ya there! :D

Well Leonardo was known to actually cut corpses open to see how they worked and then drew a load of anatomy pictures based on that XD so it's totally justified to find it interesting!
History Nerds FTW! :dummy:

Hey, we've worked with Da Vinci's art in my figure drawing classes XD He did some uber epic stuff P:

Him and Michangelo, but I've always liked the few that Da Vinci did better.
