Modeled in Silo and Blender, starting with the default male base mesh provided in Silo and referencing the female proportion drawings in "Figure Drawing for All It's Worth" by Andrew Loomis.

-EdgeSplit modifier set to 21 degrees and used to emphasize important anatomical planes

-3512 tris (it was not designed for real-time optimization, though)

-Basic rig with IK feet and FK arms, however corrective shapekeys have not been created

-Simple lighting setup for use with Cycles

Please attribute this model to me if you use it in your work.

    The smoothing groups are so obviously neglected it has to be stylistic choice? Can't really figure out why, but I think I like how it looks. :)

    Edited October 26, 2012

    I added the smoothing groups modifier so that I could emphasize the important planes. It's set to automatically split the mesh wherever there is an angle greater than 21 degrees.

    Just like she is, she is Wow. Cast in plaster, she'd be a fabulous base for sculpting, or cast in resin, a gorgeous figurine for modern decor. Lovely, thank you.

    Hey, I'm interested in your model but I only intend to use it as pose reference, like this website >>> http://www.posemaniacs.com/ This website is great for poses but its limited on only what they already have.

    But, my question is would I still have to but a creative commons to the works that I use the pose in. I just intend you use the model as reference and not redistribute it at all. I'll still credit you for model/pose reference.

    How, btw, this model is absolutely beautiful. Has a strong Burne Hogarth feeling to it. :) lynntv.deviantart.com

    I'm glad you are interested in using it!

    Thanks for asking about the license. I use posemaniacs for drawing, and so I know what you are talking about. I don't care whether you apply the CC licence to your drawings, but that would be nice if you did credit me, as you mentioned.

    You probably don't have the mirror modifier activated for rendering -- click the camera icon in the mirror modifier.

    The stylistic choice of putting emphasis on the anatomical planes is amazing, darling. This is going to be incredibly helpful to myself and other artists who use it! I feel this is going to be my go-to model for much of the foreseeable future. Is there any intention of making a male to go with it?

    Hey, I've used this model for some personal works that I post on Instagram. So far I've been giving you credit just by saying your name, so I was wondering if you had an Instagram account or website you'd like me to put on it instead.

    This is my account, in case you'd like a look: https://www.instagram.com/hannah_april_mccall/

    This is honestly one of my favorite female base meshes I've found thus far, especially being one that looks like an actual human (i think people will understand what I mean, just from how overly saturated the whole "LADY BASE THAT'S SUPER SEXY/OVEREXAGGERATED" thing is within any art sphere, unfortunately)
