The reasoning behind this, is one of the first things you learn when taking a figure drawing course is to see things from a new perspective. Do not draw a person, draw the tones and shapes and colors. After a while, you can be partially detached from the fact that a naked person is standing up in front of you, you're just drawing. I figure, most of my self-consciousness about my body is not because there's any real problem with my body, it's all about perception. So, I'm going to try to view my own body as a subject of art, rather than problematic.
