How to Draw Interesting Poses

How to Draw Interesting Poses

This is a tutorial on how to add variety and asymmetry to poses in order to get away from the boring look that is present in a lot of people’s artwork. It’s a bit of an intermediate level tutorial as you need to know how to turn forms in 3D space, but it’s something to think about, even if you can’t yet see the images in your mind.

  1. I need to just keep drawing a person in like every pose I can think of. I am getting good at drawing faces, not the body. I have trouble with legs and hands mainly.

  2. It's amazing. I watch this video ever year and I always pick up something new that I missed the last time I saw it.

    The better I get, the more information I get from these videos. I love it!

  3. This is encouraging that it is possible to draw like this but also discouraging because this ability seems so far away haha
