Crouching Archer - Pose Reference by SenshiStock Crouching Archer - Pose Reference by SenshiStock
Important Notes:

I have no archery training; `jademacalla was kind enough to allow me to use his bow and give me some basic tips. Thus, these are probably not accurate references for a skilled archer. These photos were taken with a non-realistic approach to archery in mind; they are more geared to the magical and the fantasy. Please consider this when using them for reference.

Please refrain from making comments about the model's ability. I am already aware of the shortcomings of the technical aspects.

:iconphoenixmaiden: wanted bow stock. How could I say no? :giggle:

Funded through Kickstarter.

Big thanks to `jademacalla for the photography on these.

I went back to doing some more humanoid work...just had to come back here and find a pose. This is a finished one, you might have gotten an alert from a mention with the lineart. Thank you, it gave me practice with shading and everything. Very nice to do.

Bow poses! I took some for myself (my profile pic is one of my references) but I lost the disk when I moved. This is great!

Good morning! Thank you for sharing your stock photos with the rest of us on DA.

I used this photo as a reference for drawing my character for a school assessment. I was looking for good archer poses and when I saw your photo, I just thought that this is the perfect pose for what I had in mind.
