    Corpse being carried - help!

    The idea here is that two men are carrying off a dead guy who got a sharpened crowbar put through his neck. I have some problems with imagining the positions and how the clothes wrinkle. Not to mention how high the shoulder goes against the lolling head of the dead guy. Help! Any nice ref pics out there?

    Reference, reference, reference my friend. Snap a few photos after you've sketched something out like this, then draw it again.

    Gotta agree with ZombieMariachis, this is so complex that employing couple friends and a camera would definitely help a lot. Even the basic poses don't work here, the first guy carrying the corpse doesn't look like he's carrying anything heavy, and I might even say that carrying a corpse like that is pretty difficult. You'd have to have a good and tight grip on them for the body not slip loose, and the under the shoulders grip probably isn't the best for that.

    Thanks for the feedback! Aw bugger, I don't got that many friends...
    I have a vague memory of seeing someone being carried like this in a movie, the carrier probably had a good grip on the clothes to avoid slipping. I'll find somebody not too heavy and try to recreate this scene (minus the crowbar)

    Hey look!



    Shouldn't that work for you? I tried googling "carrying injured". There were several others that might work.
