Because my shoulder was dislocated I can't draw right-handed just now.
I'd like to do some sketches with charcoal with my left hand. So I am looking for full figure poses with some strong contrast and simple shapes.
Who would be willing to share some images with me that would be suitable for this purpose?
Thanks in advance!

here this fits your description:


if you want models put up a casting call or something.
don't use the forums for that.

you might find with a little practice you'll be able to draw left handed as good as right handed.

hope your shoulder feels better soon.

I got bored one night in my figure drawing class years ago and decided to draw left handed, the drawing that resulted was one of the best I've ever drawn.  Sadly it was lost during a move a few years back and I don't have any photos of it.

edit:  take that back, have a really tiny photo of it...

I doubt anything I have would be of interest to you Stefan but you are welcomed to draw anything in my port. I hope you are on the mend and feeling better soon.
