Nude

Daily Aldo:

It may come as a surprise for those who know how naughty I am, ;-) but it's the very first time I drew him naked.
While there are plenty of Photos depicting JFK shirtless or just with a bathing short, I didn't see one Photo of Aldo Moro that isn't a model of chastity yet : Not even a single button left open. It may sound odd, but I feel a bit like a rapist for forcing him to show in the nude. But then, that's art for you: Merciless. Lusty.
At least I left him a little hanky to cover the essentials. We will go on gently.
One would think that his anatomy can just be guessed because of the available photograph pool I mentioned. Well, not exactly. There is a very accurate and "scientific" drawing of his corpse on the autopsy table.

Believe me, I really would have preferred a nude picture of him being alive and kicking.

It's very clear he didn't had the body of a young man anymore. Very thin legs and arms and a bit more rounded torso. The typical shape of old Gentlemen. But the skinny body parts, such as the extremely thin hands and fingers may also have been a symptom of the maligner tumor that was discovered inside him at the autopsy.

Das erste Nacktbild? Das überrascht mich wirklich.

Was für eine makabere Zeichenvorlage. Aber dann muss man als Zeichner eben nehmen was man kriegt.

Diana Kennedy a dit…
