SKYPE* DRAWING SESSION takes about 1 hour, 6-8 quick sketches (3-5min. each), then take a screen shot of each pose, which I will ONLY use later as reference to finish the drawing. Photos are never published. If we do nudes, you will have the option to put on your underwear for the photo. Nudity is NEVER REQUIRED, but it is preferred. In exchange, I will send you DIGITAL FILES of all finished drawings. To have a successful Skype/video chat session, model must have a good quality camera, adequate lighting and enough space to move around. Here is a link to samples of my Skype Drawings: http://www.modelmayhem.com/list/608408
LIVE DRAWING Session would last 1.5 hours at the most. 6-8 quick sketches (3-5 min. each), then take a picture each pose, which I will ONLY use later as reference to finish the drawing.

In Exchange, you will RECEIVE AN ORIGINAL DRAWING at the end of the LIVE drawing SESSION, or you can come back later to pick it up.
