SH: Move like that by Turtle-Arts SH: Move like that by Turtle-Arts
I did a gesture sheet a while back for you guys that's had pretty stable viewing since I made it, so I thought you guys might like to see another one! It's a bit smaller than my last "move like that" sheet, and this time it's actually from my Sky Herder project book. This page is a set of studies I did for Mier, the main protagonist, to help myself get a better feel for the shape of his actual body without the bulky clothing that he normally wears. The character is 14, so his proportioning is a little different than my typical characters. Hence the anatomy study. :thumbsup: Instead of the body-box style drawings like before, I'd been working in silhouette, which is another really easy way to work with a character without having to worry about all of their minor details. Also, working in silhouette is a great way to see how readable you character is, even without all of their defining detail. Normally I'd do these kinds of drawings with costumes included, but this was more of a general anatomy study for Mier than anything. But I figured since these were more pose oriented, you guys might still like to see them. :nod: So, enjoy! And hopefully this will make you want to try some similar studies with your own characters! Because the human body is such a great thing, that you should just draw it all the time. XD

Gesture drawing are good for you. 8D I think I'm gonna try to get my friend to do more of these. Admittedly, I should be doing more too. I have mad love for top right corner. that's using negative space. :D I also like the laying on the floor one.

This totally reminds me of the time when my friends and I unknowingly became the models for a couple of art students on the train... We were just standing there cuz there were no seats left and in they come, one of them whips out a small sketch book and starts sketching. I peek over and I see that he's drawing my friend, and apparently by the time we got off, three of the four of us had been sketched :P

lol, yeah that sounds like art students. XD We would go as a figure drawing class to the school's food court and draw people without them knowing it. Our teacher would stand around and make sure nobody really caught on to what we were doing. XD

lol Seems like a challenge o.o
How many of you were there? Or were you guys just scattered all around the mall xD Cuz I figure a group of students all scribbling away on sketch pads is a little obvious...

There were about 25 of us. And we were scattered around at different tables and such.

For some reason a lot of these remind me of Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians, I really like these though! I need to work better at giving my characters poses that are dynamic.

I thought the same thing! Lol. Which is why I love this so much, I'm trying to design an alternate, younger Jack and I think this will really help me finally get his size right. He keeps looking older every time I draw him.

Well, Mier has a similar body structure to Jack, just a bit smaller. XD With his regular clothing, the silhouette's a lot different, but without it, yeah I can see how they're comparable.

Well, the character does have a bit of a "Pan-ish" personality, so that's actually kind of on purpose. XD

Yeah, posing characters can be a pain. I just finally got a pose for the final character's vignette for this project actually. After having gone through many MANY rejected options over the past couple months. -_-
