Sword Fights - Pose Reference by SenshiStock Sword Fights - Pose Reference by SenshiStock
I have no training in the use of a bladed weapon; `jademacalla was kind enough to allow me to use it and give me some basic tips. Thus, I am probably not an accurate reference for a skilled swordsman.

These photos were taken with a non-realistic approach to swords 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 models' abilities.

This collaboration was funded through Kickstarter. Thanks for your support!

Credit to `jademacalla for the photography on these. :heart:

Non-realistic works best when trying to draw a sword fight, because the realistic stuff is hard to draw and/or boring poses. I know. I've checked.

Haha yeah I'm a lot more interested in gesture and expressive poses than accurate ones.
