it’s no problem at all, I don’t mind answering Qs.. /(●⌒v⌒●)
I’m glad you think they’re dynamic, because that’s what I try to go for, especially for StarFox characters, bcuz they’re BADASS that way~~
Hmmmm basically, my style is very VERY sketchy. I let my hand loose and draw and redraw until I’m happy w/ the lines I make (this requires abusing the undo feature in whatever program you’re using).
It’s important to start basic before you add the details. It’s good enough to draw stick figures if it makes it easier to focus on pose only.
I also take a break from my drawing to come back to it with fresher eyes later. If I’ve come up w/ a better pose, it’s time to redraw again! Take advantage of layers to draw on top of previous drawings.
Sometimes only certain body parts (ie, hands, head) need to be adjusted. You can easily copy your layer and select certain areas you want to re-work, rotating them for a better effect and then redraw them so it looks in proportion. So experiment, and see what looks good to you.
Knowing the human anatomy is a MUST if you want your poses to be convincing. If you can’t go to life drawing classes, simply collect any pictures that feature poses you like. They can be anything from photos to other ppl’s arts. Collect, collect, collect! For reference and inspiration.
One of my favorite artists is Yusuke Murata because he’s AMAZING at drawing action & dynamic poses, so i look at his work often ^^
Hope any of this helps (u.u)
For the longest time, I’ve been trying to do a cool Leon illustration for a friend… but I’m never satisfied with the pose or whatever’s happening in the picture.
I’d like action, perhaps conflict against Falco. & I think Leon goes better knives/blades instead of guns, ‘cause he’s a harsh, sneaky chameleon! But in the mid of a drawing, I always lose.. i dunno.. the flavor of the picture. Hmm…………
..so which pose catches your attention? if any… 8\ & what backgrounds to use?
I also like to show the spikes on his back, ‘cause they’re freaking cool!
