    Welcome to ConceptArt. I like your detail work but what I think could really help you get those dynamic poses is breaking the body down into basic shapes. When you break it down into basic shapes it makes the form follow. Also reference, reference, reference! More, please.

    Thanks for the tip friend! Here, for you, I tried several ways to draw the human body. I usually make the motion line and then sketch the proportions I know on the body, I usually do this because I cant find a good way to bend a shape around a shape, it just won't connect for me. Is there anyway to create form from more organic shapes that are more bendable?

    Forgot to put up some later sketches I made this year. And from this point on I'll only show recent stuff. So I can show improvement.

    hey man welcome to CA im pretty new here too

    post more and lots of reference !

    i like whats happening with post #3 but it is a very large image and hard to view as a whole one the screen = (

    one way i find that really helps when creating gestures (or those organic lines you're talking about )
    is to use larger paper and draw with your whole arm (not the wrist)

    the lines gain way more energy it takes a little bit to get used to it but its pretty essential IMHO

    thanks for posting keep it up !

    Sorry I let my thread die, I'm actually running out of paper so I had to be careful, anyway, I'm drawing a Druid type character, and I'm not that great with locations around the character, but this will be a way to get my feet wet. Hope you like it.

    Here is a sketch of a man getting kicked in the face, I drew this on sketch paper with a 4H wood pencil. I actually got inspiration from Ong-bak, staring Tony Jaa...name anyone on this site, and he can kick their ass. Enjoy

    Well, theres certainly nothing wrong with your imagination!!, nice range of ideas going around here. I would love to see how this sketchbook would turn out with some dedicated study. A good place to start would be minute long gesture studies form posemaniacs.com, but bear in mind to do plenty of these, otherwise they wont help.
    Keep up the good work!!

    OH, how I LOVE this site, THANK YOU for the site my friend. Funny thing is I actually bought People and Poses: Comic Artist's photo reference by Buddy Scalera. It helped me a lot. But this site is just another golden drop in the bucket, thank you. Your sketchbook is beautiful also.

    And I'le use this site no problem, if only there was a way to put regular photos in a format like this.
