Softcore "Porn" Type Photo Needed Fast!

Got your attention?
I have heard some Dopers have been known to peruse the Internet in search of photography and would know where to find, or could provide a link for what I am looking to find.

I teach a beginners class in Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator for students who need to do fashion sketches. This is just for classroom drawing purposes, not anything commercial, so any photos will simply be used for that purpose.

  • I am looking for an attractive, full-length body photo of a woman/model in skimpy clothing (bikini?).
  • The photo should not cut off legs or feet, as they need to design/sketch clothing to cover the model and go floor length.
  • Preferably, the background of the photo would be a solid color for the students to easily “cut” the model out of the photo.
  • And lastly, the arms should be to the side or in a natural position - not wrapped around their body.

The students will be taking the photo, cutting out the model in Photoshop and then placing that photos as a template in Illustrator and drawing fashion sketches, using the photo as a croqui (model) to draw their evening wear, sports wear, etc.

I have tried Google Images search and am having trouble finding a “simple” photo like this! Any suggestions or links to photos would be appreciated - nothing more than “R” rated photos only, please! Thanks in advance!

I mainly paint from photos such as you describe–here’s a classic photo of Angie Dickinson that seems to fit your description. LMK if you need more, or if this isn’t what you’re looking for. I’ve got a bunch.

pseudotriton ruber ruber. that is EXACTLY what I am looking for - however, my students might be wanting a model that is somewhat thinner (what can I say - fashion majors…). Still, this photo will be excellent for them to learn the basics of cutting and pasting, and using for a template!
Any other links would be great - but thank you, thank you, thank you!

You don’t need to give me any further excuses to look through pictures of women in skimpy clothing.

This stock photo seems to fit the bill. Of course, you’d have to pay for it. Trying to find a similar free image but they tend to be lesser quality.

Excellent photo, but the problem with it is the hair…I should have mentioned that.
It goes over the shoulder, so if they designed an evening dress, they would have to draw around the hair that is covering her shoulder, and that gets tricky.
Sorry, but have to send you back to the Internet to look for more women with skimpy clothing - if you don’t mind…

On second thought, the hair won’t be a problem in that photo…we will be using the healing brush tool and they can easily remove it. Plus, they are still going to have to work around the hands, so nevermind. You don’t have to force yourself to keep searching for women wearing skimpy clothing - unless the mood strikes you…thanks Rigamarole!

Do you mean to tell me that you can’t find one woman who fits the bill in your travels between Chicago, New York, Berlin, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, get her into the proper clothes, take a quick photo, pay for her daily fix of whatever keeps her that thin, and then have a photo you can use over and over each time you teach this class?

A. I need this for tomorrow - hence the “fast” part of the thread title. (I will however, save these for future class use.)
B. I’m Gay and don’t have lots of female friends who are ready and willing to pose. This might also be a reason I am probably not looking in the right places to find the photos.
C. Those female friends that I do have - well, love them to death - but few of them are what my students would want to use as models for their clothing.

Celeb bikini shots appear on websites like the Superficial all the time. Go through their archives and you’ll likely find a new one every day that fits the bill. Some are candid photographs,* typically shot while the celeb is on vacation, so the poses are likely (as here) not to be carefully staged, but that’s what I’m interested in. I can e-mail them more easily than I can post them since I’ve just copied the photos and have lost my direct links, but if I can send you some attachments you’re welcome to them.

  • a little extra man-candy for you here.

A. I was more or less taking the piss on that.
B. I knew that you are gay, but there is a myth that gay guys have all beautiful female friends. (I’m sure that your female friends are beautiful although perhaps not to your students tastes)
C. See B. Also, maybe you can help steer them away from this dangerous ideal image that is forever perpetuated. I’m not one of those who makes fun of thin people, but there are certainly many beautiful average, slightly more than average and bbw women out there. Maybe challenge them to design for the common woman?

Anyway, not trying to bust your chops; good luck with your class.

Deviantart.com has a stock photo section, perhaps you can find something you’d like there

Also with man-candy included. LMK if you’d like those attachments.

Thank you all!
Class is today, so with those photos and links, I am set to go. (And yes, ShibbOleth, I know it was in jest…)

Again - thanks for the help. You would think a photo like this would be easy to find - it ain’t.

Feel free to keep looking - in the name of research - and posting, as I will start to save these for future classes. However, I got what I needed for class today. Danke!

www.voyeurweb dot com is another site where you might find some subjects.

But you would really have to look around to find the suitable images.

This boggles my mind. There is no part of that photo that is fat. You can see her abdominal muscle cuts, fer chrissakes.

(Not that I’m giving DMark shit about it. Just, sheesh.)

Like this?

I know, I know…but when it comes to fashion majors, they all want to design for the super model of the day, and that photo of Angie Dickinson would be considered almost a “full figure” model today (especially her legs). There are some who design only for the full figure - but in their case, Angie would be too thin for those students - so what can I tell ya? I just try to be diplomatic in the classroom.

And thanks to those who continue to post photos - I will most certainly be saving those links for future classes.

Did you get my attachments via e-mail, Dmark? I had some problems with my e-mail server today, but I did send you a metric shit-ton of photos.

OT rant but anyone who looks at that photo and thinks “full figured” probably has a visible lobotomy scar. That’s a pretty toned hot-looking lady there.

Got 'em!
Thanks so much! I emailed you a response back - this will be very helpful for this class.
