Foreshortening from Reference by SenshiStock Foreshortening from Reference by SenshiStock
I kind of wish I didn't have to pick between traditional and digital for this (aren't things like Anatomy and Perspective kind of useful in both?) but I went with Traditional since that's what I do. :P

Pose is in the gallery here:


You can find more perspective and foreshortening poses in my gallery in this folder!

Pardon spelling mistakes and general rambling. I promised *shuu-bunni I'd make one of these. :love:

DON'T FEAR THE FORESHORTENING! ATTACK IT WITH VIGOR!

Thank you so much for your work and your tutorials ! It's crazy how much you helped me! Since I remember I was always scared of perspective and foreshortening cos I honestly suck at it. Sometimes it takes ages for me to reach what I want to have and I still do it wrong. I am so extremely happy I found you on deviantart! You're like the embodiment of my bright future of perspective right now! xD You're amazing for sharing all this! Thank you again so so so so much!

I've been struggling with this very concept lately. Not with hands or the body, only the legs. I don't know what the difference is, but the legs just throw me for a loop. This tutorial was really great and I think it's going to help. Thanks for creating it! :)

I do something like this but instead of doing what you did, I make.. Hold on, I need a word xD.. I make um, like little circles for joints and the head, lines where the body bends and a kind of skeleton. I do it over the picture then I take the picture away and look at it as I draw on the "skeleton" I made. But what you did is actually a whole lot simpler xD

Thankies <3

You are drawing through the form, right? That's a great technique, too! Do both. The more tools you have in your toolbox, the better. Also, what you are doing is better for making up poses, while this works best for when you have a ref or a model :D
