Of course, you wouldn’t be drawing stationary subjects like this forever. Soon, you may want to draw your subjects in “action poses”. Now the tricky factor here rises even higher. It’s going to take another chapter to give you guys more tips on making great looking action poses so I’ll just give you some samples here. Not to mention un-clothed, really crude quickly sketched samples.
Sorry, I’m just a bit too excited to make the content for this site. I’ll try and upload more samples in the future – or you can just visit the gallery to see drawings with characters in action poses there.
Take note of the third sample. Sometimes angles really make things look different – and you also have to take the angles into account if you’re making action poses.
For example, if a human being jumps, he won’t shoot up clean and straight. He may slant a bit and will flail his arms around and the angles will change– you may see more of his legs and feet or his head arms or shoulders. The most important thing that you’ll need in making action poses is some knowledge of human anatomy and a sense for angles.
Again, practice will help you a lot. Have a friend or family member pose for you or even use yourself as a subject. Studying the human body will really help in making awesome looking action poses.
