It's poses time! [Usable as References] by Dex91 It's poses time! [Usable as References] by Dex91

No references used.
You can use these as a Reference if you want, just credit and put the link to this work in your Description :)

Some poses i drew today to practice different and varied stuff.
They are in chronological order, which means the first ones on the top were warm-ups, and then i escalated the complexity of the poses as i went down, leading to the final two more detailed and complicated poses on the bottom.

I should be able to upload more of these from now on, since i resumed practicing with poses.
Please let me know if you found this useful and want more!

These bases are amazing! i love how some of them hold an object, and not just posing. this would definitely be something i would one day use if i needed some bases. there is really not much to say but that i am totally impressed! i love it and keep up the good work xD!!! ok. this 100 word minimum thing is getting on my nerves. anyway, if you can maybe make one for females that would be fabulous. ya this is my first time doing a critique so im sorry if this is totally not worth reading. overall, i think they were great. ya...

Someone may have commented on this already but I didn't read through the comments so if you already have heard this I'm sorry, but on the pose with the bow and arrow its a little bit awkward. When you hold the arrow with your fingers the arrow is going to held between the end knuckles of your index finger (which will be above the arrow) and middle finger (which long with the ring finger and pinky finger will be below the arrow) which also will hold the bowstring back as you pull back to fire. Also the arm holding the bow will never bend.

Fantastic poses though!

Thank you for the constructive feedback!

About the hand holding the arrow you are right, i made a mistake.
It was probably because i forgot to draw the ending part of the arrow, the wings or something like that xD
Having not drawn that, i drew a hand pose that could get a solid grip on the shaft of the arrow, so i guess this is why i made this big mistake :O

As for the arm bent, the moment of action is not the one with maximum tension: the bow could be pulled more and the hand looks like it could go further back, so i guess that's why i felt it natural to draw the arm slightly bent instead of drawing it very tensed and straight.
When i draw stuff like these poses, i just begin to draw in something and then complete with what feels natural to me: i have no fixed idea.
I don't start saying "this is going to be a guy shooting a bow in the moment of maximum tension", and in fact this doesn't look to me tensed enough to be called the peak of action xD

Thank you once again for your feedback! :glomp:
