hey if anyone needs good references for poses
--only girl poses sorry
you should check out the America's Next Top Model website and look at the model portfolio, some good stuff pose wise (and if you want to add clothes...they have some cool looking outfits haha)
edit: oh and try this site too :] http://www.3d.sk/
(i saw someone asked in the other thread )
might jump in and do this after 30. haha
what exactly do you mean by uncomfortable hand positions though? just like someone's hand twisted under oddly or something along those lines right?
and sorry don't know why the avatar isn't working :| and i don't have my photoshop at the moment...

MeTaL-Mike; Forgot yourself in the hall of fame. Yea it seems the icon is not loading, not quite sure why. There's a topic on that around here somewhere ;| Looking pretty good, by the way. You whipped that out quickly. Was thinking about a helmet too, easily recognizable. I can imagine it being hard to read with the text over the helmet, as the icon will probably appear a bit smaller tho.
ArtFish; Mm, good find. Couple of those next top model photos are kind of over the top though, with all the effects. But good ones among them too. 2nd seems resourceful if you're willing to pay for it
Here's another good one (will load a .pdf)

ya i know, the top models are like...a bit much but if you search a bit you can find some really good ones

OK ppl. it works now. i think the problem was that my file had the extention .JPG ! i re-saved it as .jpg and now it's ok
also the first one i made was not very clear so i had to adjust some stuff.
Anthis - i just did a quick google search for "Spartan" in the images section and voila!!! then some quick ps work and there we go. If you guys have some idea's please share then and we can all decide which icon to use.
PS. awesome ref's all. nice stuff.

omg, i didnt even realise deviant had stock photos, i wish i had found these a week ago,
Does anyone know of any other good stock image sites, that has plenty of images of the same person, only at different angles, preferably good face shots, not nudes or supermodels though.

infact many are worth taking a look at, a good chunk of them, if not most, are not nude and a good amount should have good face shots

ArtFish - no worries. just post what you've got and do your best to have them finished next time. we're here every week
best thing you can do is spread this stuff over the week. do like 10 a day. don't spend too much time on them. the idea is to do gestures not complete figure drawings. we're doing this to train our eyes to see proportions and put it on paper as fast as possible. the ones that are usually being posted here are actually way too detailed.
check out the website below. this is very cool and usefull technique for drawing. Teaching you to find rhythm, and Force in a pose. If you have the bucks, buy this book. this guy also has loads of video lessons explaining a lot of stuff. maybe with a little torrent search....
Look at me writing a book here
back to drawing before i go to get wasted. it's carnaval in Holland now so, it's beer time
