Find your way around DA #1: Pose ReferencesComing up with interesting, accurate poses for your characters can be difficult. Either they all end up looking the same, or the poses just don't look right. Drawing from a reference is a great way to practice this. Luckily, there are lots of amazing resources available to help you out, both here on DeviantArt and one the big bad WWW. I've listed the ones I know here, so you don't have to do the digging.Find your way around DA #1: Pose References by Iduna-Haya
- I've picked resources that focus on poses, not on anatomy. This means that the drawn pose references listed here are not necessarily anatomically correct. Though the two are definitely related, to me they're not necessarily the same thing. Your anatomy might be great, but a good pose can really bring your image to life.
- This journal focuses on humans, not animals. Animal references will be listed in the next journal.

I'm a third year graphic design major on hiatus [returning fall 2016 to SCSU]. I work a part time job in retail and make nice arts on the side. I strive to always be learning my craft. I work with multiple mediums to create compelling works in various genres. I keep my art as free as possible because I like giving back to the deviantART community. My goal is to become an accomplished and successful artist. I try to make art that expresses how I feel about life and what I believe in. I am working hard to be the best I can be.|
