I'm going to my life drawing class today! You know, it's a long time since I've seen anyone do the thumb guide thingy, I'd forgotten it was a common practice! But a big thumbs up for this Mr Stott cartoon! (see what I did there?)
I did Mr Whyman, I did ! The thumb guide thing's a bit of a cliche. I do remember, years ago, folk getting really wonky results because they had their measuring arms bent.
I notice that the gentleman in the orange shirt has found a handy resting place for his spare arm. Weirdly, I do just the same sort of thing with my spare arm when life drawing.
Its also very handy for carrying a roll of lino
Go on... you want to say SOMETHING, don't you? Post under a made-up name if you're shy!
