I do some life drawing, as well as photography.

My preference for photography would be a younger/slimmer model... because I find them easier to light, and post-processing less.

For drawing I'd much rather draw a larger/older model, because they provide much greater variation of line and texture. Drawing perfect skin/stick thin models gets dull pretty quickly.

The famous 1538 Titian's 'Venus of Urbino' had plenty of flesh on her...






Cute dog!  Is that person being sick in the background?  Looks like a scene from one of my parties.

Life classes love older and bigger ladies but find it hard to get them. In art-nude photography I think slim or medium is best but as in most cases it's not what you've got more than what you do with it. I've seen some shockingly boring slim art-nude photos so size doesn't always matter.
Fun, friendly and experienced mature model with lively personality and youthful figure!

its my personal preference to see slimmer girls in art nude but I am sure there are some lovely larger ladies who look great in this genre, it's not for me though.Its a shame as I miss it but most art nudes seem to be a size 6,8 or small ten and my hips and bum are never going to shrink down to that size again!

My image example is in a flash slideshow so is not likely to show here, but it is of a large lady gardener in her shed. She looks superb by any standards. http://www.dontwelookgoodwithoutclothes.com/Naked/in-my-garden.html
I tried to copy and paste a jpeg, but that didn't work. Is there a way to post an image other than through a website link?

Been following this thread quite closely- there are a couple of plus-sized art-nude models in the US (as in, *properly* plus sized). Shyly, for example: http://missshyly.deviantart.com/

I'm occasionally told I'm plus sized due to the abundance of curve-osity here. (I'm a size 10) :P

Here's my attempt at a nude shoot back in March this year I'm a UK 16

As I said in a previous post, I believe nude images can look amazing, whatever size the model. But I do understand and appreciate everyone has their own tastes.

The popularity of stick thin models is a relatively recent phenomenon. Up until the 60's a size 12 model was pretty much the norm, Marylin Monroe was a size 14 and she did alright. One can only hope that the modern trend for underweight models will pass, as to me a proportionately built size 12-14 is pretty much perfect - as can be seen by JadedRed in an earlier post.
