A Pose is a collection of photos.
Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see 24 thumbnail photos. Each one links to a full-size 25MP photo. Zaza016 happens to be clothed, but most Poses on this site are nudes, as you would expected for a figure drawing reference.

Practice to Perfect

All of us need practice, no matter how accomplished. Without life-long rehearsal, even the best of skills will eventually wane. Plus, all artists can find enjoyment in the mere indulgence of drawing as an end in itself.
