    Art Modelling

    Do people consider art modelling to be a creative pursuit? I have done this for over a decade and think in many ways it involves as much thought, inspiration, collaboration and discipline as many other forms of art. Are there any other art models on here?

    Hi! I'm just starting out in this so I'd appreciate any advice. To answer the question, though, yes to have people paying attention to you and painting, sculpting and drawing you in the same way as any other beautiful structure or arrangement I think would be really awesome. The model has to have a unique set of skills and employ a certain state of mind to stay still and maintain position with not much on.

    I think it could be, I knew an artist whose (only, female) model was surely his muse. I guess it would be more of a life than a career for both parties. One would probably need a v understanding partner!

    I'm quite good at sitting still. I'm doing it now instead of getting on with stuff.

    It's something I'd love to do, but it's never been convenient for me, due to having a "proper" job... Maybe in a few months time, I'll look into it seriously...

    I have done it before. I consider it a "proper job" Like Unimuse I think that it is important to be able to empathise with the artist, to be "in" what you are doing, to possibly collaborate. So yeah, it is a creative pursuit. Actually holding the pose is the smallest part of the job in my opinion
