pose-reference

fellow artists,

if you have an ipod or iphone or ipad or whatever then Please download the app “Make a Pose”

it gives you a lil figure like this

and you can make them do whatever you want!! Like

Took me about 1.4 minutes to make this sad little guy it’s Really easy to get the hang of

they Happy

you can change the camera angle so easy too so you can get perspective + foreshortening reference

THIS IS ALL FREE TOO but if you pay $2 you unlock the ability to have two figures onscreen at the same time so you can make COUPLE POSES

AND YOU CAN CHANGE THE LIGHTING,

you can also make rooms and place some objects or characters like so:

YOU WANT A CHARACTER W/ A BIGGER CHEST? HERE THEY ARE

YOU WANT A FRICKIN HORSE?

NEIGH NEIGH MOTHER FUCKER

ANYWAY YOU CAN PAY ABSOLUTELY $0 TO GET THE APP WITH THE ABILITY TO POSE ONE FIGURE AT A TIME AND IF YOU PAY $2 YOU GET TO PUT UP TO 6 CHARACTERS ON THE SCREEN AT ONCE AND YOU ALSO GET A GOTDAMN HORSE. again it is called “Make a Pose” and it’s for iphone or ipod touch or ipad and i cannot recommend it enough

So that's how to reference with digital art. Cool. Thanks for sharing it.

It is! I always make sure to try and break the pose into shapes and work from there. I also like to use arrows to show the flow of the pose!!! I then open it next to my picture and draw the shapes scaled up in size as I draw on a 4000px x 4000px canvas usually. You can also use posemaniacs.com for referencing, if you scroll down the right side and click “model” it has hands, a torso, and a head for practicing with.

Here’s 2 examples!!!

Hey! I’m considering buying a body-kun, but before I go for it, I’d like to know how well he can take to the poses I illustrated below (highlighted areas being of particular interest to me; to what degree can body-kun slouch? to what degree can his arms and legs bend?)

If you can help me with this, I would immensely appreciate it haha. And please feel free to let me know if this is the wrong place to ask.

Thanks!

PS. great blog, awesome cause :)

Admin: Alas, you’ve found most of body-kun’s weaknesses.  Here’s a rundown.

This is the full range of motion body-kun can achieve in regards to a “curling over the knees” pose.  It’s what I consider the greatest limitation.

This is as close as he can get to achieving the forearms together pose in your second sketch.  (Sorry bout the gun; he was… in the middle of something.)

I think he does the forward slouch pretty well, but again, this is about as far as he can bend at the waist and ribs.

He can raise his arm as in your fourth sketch, but as with most dolls, it’s from shoulder rotation.  The deltoids end up in an unnatural position, but the good news is that you can rotate his arm at the biceps/triceps a full 360 degrees so the elbow faces forward, to the side, etc.  As long as you have the anatomical knowledge to fill in the armpit/deltoids, this one is acceptable in my opinion.

I finally got around to fixing this and making it into a line art! I really love doing half body poses like this, they can be so intimate.

If you use please reference me, and send me a link so I can check out your work!

I’m making some elaborations for two of my characters for college and I made this as a reference, feel free to use them as they are only poses but PLEASE DO NOT repost without my permission or claim these as your own, thank you! Also please bare in mind that these are NOT anatomically correct and are very stylized.
