Dynamic Pose Thread Oct. 4th, 2012 @ 11:38 AM Reply

I'm making this thread in regards practicing correct anatomy, with the attempt to instill the belief that practice makes perfect (or at least slightly better.) This is going to be different than my Art Thread in which there I'm trying to become an all around "better artist," here I want to practice dynamic angles and correct anatomy. Maybe a few other users may learn a thing or two with me as well.

So feel free to throw out an idea, and I'll hammer it out as best I can and feel free to tell me what's wrong or how it can be improved.

P.s I should also mention that if anyone else wishes to attempt any requests they are more than free too.

My current level of poses in variety as seen in my art thread

How about making it a thread where anyone can try to practice dynamic poses. That and anatomy are my biggest weak points.

Also more people will post in the thread.

hey, i think it's wonderful that you are studying anatomy. This is such a FUNDAMENTAL part of drawing that many people overlook.

In fact, it's so fundamental that i think i'm going to begin an anatomy study too and post on my forum. Heck, every artist on NG should be doing anatomy studies like this :D

I hope you have an even more fruitful anatomy session next time!

Cheers!

If I could revise my words I would, but anyone is free to submit there best effort so people can become "better."

Hurray anatomy!
Hurray dynamic stuff!

Well, I was thinking about how you could maybe try drawing the different stages of someone salto-ing off a diving board, but that's more pure action. It's always an option though, and kinda fun.

Don't ever say you suck!

To be honest at first I thought you were being sarcastic with your post, but the I looked at your work. Listen anyone can learn to create a mannequin that looks like this, it then takes experience to make it great.

Not sure if this is what you wanted so I went from memory and drew a story board

these drawings are great practice. I can tell you are putting time and effort into them. I'm gonna keep checking in and out.

So the anatomy discussion is diving right now??

That was fast :D and yup, that was about what I had in mind. Although this is a dive, not a somersault :p
just a couple thoughts: in the first image, the person walks with both left leg and arm outstretched. They are always supposed to be opposites when walking, left leg-right arm, right leg-left arm. Also, if you squat down yourself before a jump, you'll notice your arms are probably elbows-up and hands behind back or at your sides, instead of huddled in front.
Last, if you dive without wanting to get brain-damage, you'll probably stretch out your arms in front of you :D

Something I also noticed is that your backs are always relatively straight in your drawings. Don't be afraid to bend your bodies! It makes them way more dynamic.
I uh.. drew you a tiny little ready-to-jump-man to illustrate. Maybe some of it helps.
But anyway, you draw this without reference and very quickly, so it's okay practice. Jumps are fun, in my opinion.

Well, all I can say about that is that it's a better tutorial-esque thing than I could ever make. Genitals should never be rigid, it disrupts the cosmic balance. Very insightful indeed, dang, I should have thought of that.

Hey, newgrounds seriously needs more artists sharing their insight on how to come at different challenges. I actually am finding what I'm reading on here interesting and helpful!

Please more posts!

Take it outside, ladies, this is a thread about realistic, dynamic poses, not your mom's opera soap.
Kostou, your drawings are out of place here in that regard. Maybe they were meant as a small joke, but it seemed more dickish than you probably intended.

Morthagg's advice on the other hand is kickass, although I do think the legs seem rather short, as the thigh and shin don't seem to match in height.


A rather disgusting-looking git that should have been disposed of ages ago.

Why, that dive is the best advice I've ever seen on any art thread. Just analyze those genitals. You sir are the dick.

1st page and there's already an issue, anyway since no one wants to present a unique idea I'll be the first to get the creative juices flowing.

Let's all practice the literal "breaking" of human anatomy. I'm practicing the breaking of an arm.

Haha! I started being serious at 1st, and realize how hard it is, so me ending up not know what the heck im doing.
OMG, you did it so well, I really can do better on paper and bencil but not that good.
I could really learn a lot from this thread! You're AWESOME!

Nova: A star that suddenly becomes much brighter and then gradually returns to its original brightness over a period of weeks to years.

Solstice: Either of two times of the year when the sun is at its greatest distance from the celestial equator.

if i had to define it, it'd be a nova close to the celestial equator or very far away

EITHER WAY... when i made the name i made it because i like the two words and they're nice together

ya, it actually is a cool name... i guess i just remember being taught a long time ago that solstice in greek or latin means ( sun stands still....i'm too lazy to google it) and i've always thought of nova as how you just defined it....that's why i asked if it meant a nova standing still.....anyway thanks for defining it for me :D
