Artist Mannequin: a study in anguish, joy, and problematic joints

We got this little mannequin as part of a, like, “artist sketching kit!” or something, Mr. Adult Beginner bought the kit just so he could use the box for another project, and then all the pencils and stuff went into general supply,
Including this tiny, cheap-o, figure mannequin thingy.
Supposed to help you work out poses for drawing, except that this one bends in ways the human body prolly shouldn’t.
Anyway, I keep finding it all over the house, abandoned by the boy in poses of extreme anguish and joy.
Makes me laugh.
This one for example, poor thing.

    Are you sure that’s not from the Agon pas de deux? Kid is a prodigy.

  3. When my husband and I moved in together we each had our own artist’s mannequin, which we never used. I have taken to posing them as a pas de deux on top of our bookcases. Girl has a terrible arabesque, though.
