Body Sketching (help Needed) 2010-12-06 10:05:13 Reply

Whatsup guys!
I'm a huge tekken fan, so I enjoy drawing tekken chars pretty much.
Still, I'm a rookie at drawing and so on...

I would like to get some tips at making a drawing look real.
Here I've got 2 sketches, which needs a huge help on legs, arms etc..

Any help appreciated, thanks!

Try searching google for some poses and figures to practice sketching out.
You could also try posemaniacs.

All the more reason to loosen up those lines! You will find your characters have a lot more movement if you start with spontaneous marks and placeholders for limbs. Think of your approach to drawing similar to a sculpture, you want to carve a loose shape to get an idea of what you want, then whittle away and select the bits that work to make the final image.

Try starting off by drawing the curve of the spine with a single line, and complimenting that curve with the angles of the limbs.
