I couldn’t find anything in the way of dresses being blown in the wind from the rear view.

I did find a set of stock images which include a girl in a dress running from the viewer though: [link]. The effect is similar, I’d imagine.

Hello, friend! To be honest I think I suck at poses and making them interesting… but I think I do have a few tricks up my sleeve!

But okay, let’s see…

Let’s take a look at this dude. Let’s forget about his horrible anatomy for the moment and look at his pose. The line represent the pose and the dynamics. What makes it boring? The answer should be quite clear; it’s way too symmetrical and it doesn’t tell us anything. The trick is to make both sides unique; different from each other. You don’t really have to have a specific idea about the pose, really. Just make one, and then the viewers can come up with their conclusion. At least your pose will be interesting! Let’s spice him up a little by making each side different.

image

It looks like I changed much, but I didn’t, really! I placed the body parts differently, and twisted them a bit. Just tilting the hips alone will make your pose look more natural. Just changing the positions will make a very natural-looking stance, that’s also somewhat interesting to observe. Also; the hips and shoulders is what really makes a balanced pose. Basically, like this:

It’s really simple, really. Plus, if you already know how to draw the body as forms (like cylinders, teardrops, etc, like shown in my other tutorial), you shouldn’t have a problem placing them differently on the body. I think, however, perspective is a whole different topic. Sorta.

Now, as also explained in my other tutorial, the line also explains the balance. The further off you go from the line, the more extreme and dynamic it will be!

Then, do some practices, just like these. Yes, you may laugh, but they’re extremely useful! Do small, quick doodles, of people posing. In fact, do them as unserious as you can be. Twist the bodies, have fun! Unconsciously you’re learning how the body works in different poses; don’t worry about being anatomically correct. You can think about that when you’re not fooling around! (: Then, try to draw bodies as silhouettes. Observe how each piece is formed, and which silhouette is more interesting. What makes a pose nice to look at? How do you can you read them merely by their shape? NOTE: Don’t draw a SINGLE line straight. NOT when serious or unserious. It will make your pose look stiff, and it will also limit you. Curve the lines as much as you can!

That’s really the basics, however. At least from what I can offer at the moment. But…

image

You got the pose down, but something doesn’t seem right. The pose doesn’t look connected to the rest. That is because the pose is equally dependent on how you draw the rest on the person; such as hair, clothes, and expression. It has to move and feel with the body; or else it will look awkward, no matter how good your pose is.

See what I mean? It’s much more believable now, isn’t it? 

Also, observe others. Look at photos. Read about body language. This is SUPER HELPFUL.

Well! That’s all for now, if you have any questions, or more tutorial requests, don’t be afraid to let me know! If you want to see more of my tutorials, click [here]! ♥
