Silhouette and Shadow offers premier drawing references through our figurative video library and virtual drawing session calendar. Members pick the package that works for their drawing habits and budget, which they can adjust for their needs monthly. Then they just log in, pick the session they want to join and start drawing!
We have 4 sessions a week and will be increasing to fit the demands of our expanding community. Every month we add new models to our video reference library and host new models on our calendar. We also curate unique session themes and video experiences - so you always have something new and exciting to draw!
Pick the tier that's right for your budget & schedule. You can choose a tier or pay for sessions individually via the calendar.
Once you've chosen your tier you'll be asked for your card information. We process our subscriptions through Stripe & PayPal.
Once you've signed up, you'll see your subscription information & remaining session credits on your profile page. When you sign up for a session, you will receive a confirmation email.
Your subscription will renew once a month on the date that you signed up. I.E. If you signed up January 7th, it would renew February 7th.
We use Zoom for all of our virtual sessions.
We work with models around the world and are always increasing our outreach to include more models in our community. We work only with professional models who work part or full time as a figure model for artists. All models are paid for their services, but they also appreciate tips!
Click on the session you’d like to join in the Session Calendar. Then click ‘Register’ on the session details page. You will be sent an email with a link to join the session and further emails about any updates to the session details or the Zoom link. You can always go back to the session details page on the site and click ‘Join Session’ at the top, which will take you immediately to the Zoom meeting.
Our members have the ability to save images from the library by clicking the (book icon) Bookmark icon underneath each video. This will save the timestamp of the video to your profile page. To return to the image, just click the corresponding bookmark on your profile.
For our model’s privacy, no images or videos from the site can leave the site without the model’s strict consent. This means absolutely no imagery from the video library can be shown off-site.
During virtual sessions, models have the option to allow screenshots. This information will be in the session details and a tip of $5 or more is generally required. Always read the session details to find out the expectations from that session.
The models are in charge of their sessions. They Dj, moderate, time poses, move cameras and chat with members. It’s a lot of stuff to do, so please listen to updates and follow directions while you are in session. Writing suggestions in the Zoom chat feature is a great way to communicate with the model about any updates.
We’re all here to make some art, so here are some codes of conduct to help it run smoothly.
1. Keep your camera on during breaks and while the model is talking.
2. Mute your mic while the model is posing.
3. Only take screenshots if the model allows and always tip their requested amount.
4. Share your work and tag S&S and the model!
