At least 40 nude models and nearly 500 artists have taken part in a new, unusal world record attempt.
The group are hoping to make it into the record book for the biggest 'life drawing' class ever.
Gathering inside Brisbane's Colossus Hall in West End earlier this week organisers said they were overwhelmed by the amount of interest.
We had to turn away between two and 300 people who were patiently waiting in the rain," organiser Manny Petavrakis told thebrisbanetimes.com.
'It was a space issue, we just couldn't fit any more people in'.
With such strong public interest in the project Mr Petavrakis is already looking forward to the next challenge.
'Now we are thinking we should lay down the challenge to the southern states, a sort of arty state of origin and prove which is the most creative state in Australia.'
The organisers are still waiting on a decision from Guinness World Record officials.
