In art school, I somehow managed to have life drawing as my first class of the day for several years. This, before I had taken to drinking coffee, was met with bleary-eyed angst.  The human body is a complex form full of unique details and markers. Starting at 8 AM and lasting 3 hours, I wasn't always up for the task of studying flesh.  Sometimes, not consistently, there was drapery available.
