    Weasyl Sketchbook!

    I find I have trouble drawing poses that involve the character hunching forward or in a slightly 'twisted up' pose, so I did a few practice poses this morning as both a warm-up and to help myself figure out how the torso bends and whatnot. Linking to the sketches just in case the partial nudity shouldn't be posted.

    Mild Tasteful Nudity, NSFW

    I was going to clean up the lines for all of them like I did for the pose in blue, but I didn't want to lose sight of why I was doing this, so pardon the crazy lines on the other two.

    The top right was by far the most challenging. The shoulders / upper torso need a lot more work, and I might fix it later or redo it. Not sure yet. Definitely enjoyed the bottom pose, and the top was probably more in my comfort area, not too much of a crazy pose but enough of a bend in the back to challenge me a bit.

    SO on that I'll try to update this with more studies with more action poses or twisted ones. I want to try to avoid basic standing ones for this or at least not make them my focus.

    Did some more poses today centered around flexibility and stretching.

    NSFW for Mild Nudity

    Very nice! For your first pic, I really like the bottom left one, and for the second, top right. The only advice I can give is to go a bit more free with your lines for doing gestures. Don't focus so much on anatomy; that comes after. Sorta unrelated to gestures, but for foreshortening (since you're having trouble with drawing forward positions) I find it helps to do circles and outline.

    Thank you for the video! I'm about to go to sleep but I will watch this tomorrow

    I should have kept in my gesture lines, but I did erase them after things started getting messy, which may be why the poses aren't as fluid >< That is definitely something I struggle with. I shall do more sketches and try to keep the gestures without focusing on the final anatomy parts first.

    Ahh thank you XD

    I did some quick super basic sketches within a few minutes, trying to keep the "feel of the pose". I did it twice, just to compare first impressions vs. getting 'familiar' with the pose. Also to practice just getting the motion without focusing on the pretty anatomy.

    NSFW: Nude ladies

    I am also not feeling well and am super tired, but the bottom one I tried to do the circle thing (EDIT: Foreshortening coils) that Moogle suggested. I think that helped with the one arm (the 2nd try). It's fun to make the circles XD
