(OMG tumblr increased the amount of captions in the photos!)

Reference: Senshi-Stock!

Did some experimenting in how I could use my knowledge from gesture drawing to quickly reference a pose without making it look too “referenced”. I liked this method a lot. And just in case you cannot read the captions I’ll just copy-paste it below to read:

picture 1:

Focus mainly on the gesture and not proportions here. Use as few pen strokes as possible (5-7 strokes is good). Find connections, lines and shapes.

picture 2:

Polish the sketch. Now it’s time to focus a bit more on fixing the proportions.

picture 3:

Once you feel that the anatomy is accurate enough, you can add your own stylization to it. It’s good to try to draw the pose again but without the reference.
