I've never seen anyone that's actually good at drawing every say anything about loomis. The first time I'd even heard of the faggot was on here. I'm entirely convinced this is just a really awful meme people here throw around to trap beginners into never progressing.

what do you mean?

you pose it and use it as a reference when your spatial skills aren't developed enough

Use? I thought we all just used them as desk decoration, how else will people will know you're an artist?

By throwing it away and studying from real human anatomy.

>> No.6839568

>>6839562
the mannequin isn't about anatomical features but instead about getting the spatial aspects of your pose down as well as the general proportions like how a simplified skeleton would, the parts in the skeleton don't contract or expand, they're rigid so they exist as the scaffolding for everything on top of them

Those stiff wooden ones are awful, you can get much better ones for posing. But really you can just pose a 3D model nowdays for reference so they are obsolete

>> No.6841887

>>6841847
posing a 3d model is more pain in the ass if you just want a quick reference. You might've just posed the 3d model and trace over it instead. Posing yourself in the mirror is more useful in many cases

On other hand that 3d dolls is pretty handy. I've had body-kun and used him often to double check where the limbs should go if the angles are tilted higher/lower and such
