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!

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

This is super helpful. I find foreshortened images to be more dynamic then your normal bland poses, but I always felt intimidated by them because they are tough to deal with especially if its a pose that can make or break a piece with what you have taught in this tutorial though I now have a better understanding that I like would have never gotten from a book. Thanks alot.

Awesome! I hope when you try it you can find new ways to look at it to make it easier to manage. It really is all about tuning into the important information and tuning out the part of your brain that keeps trying to draw what it wants xD

Wow, this is really great. First off, I didn't know you could draw yourself, not to mention that well! Maybe doing these poses also gives you a bit of an insight into 'how to look' at things... or maybe that's a skill you already need if you want to make reference poses. What surprises me most of all - I didn't expect to see someone doing poses for reference to do a guide on how to effectively use their poses in making their drawings. That's an excellent idea! :)

I started making stock for my own reference. :) Part of me would like to teach figure drawing, but I'd probably have to go back to school and get my masters and I don't think I'm ready for that xD

Oh! That's indeed a nice way to get into doing reference stock.

I often do my reference poses myself, because (especially in a certain composition) it is very hard to find exactly the right pose from the angle you want. But more often than not I just draw from intuition and my art isn't typically very reality-like because of that ;)

this is again, like he or she said, off topic, but I was watching a youtube vid about an old 'castles and knights' board game, that involves rubber bands and balls, that says to watch the cat while playing lol. Any movement, kitty likes. Or if you're doing something important, kitty bombs it.
