    Tutorials, books etc

    Besides reproducing the pose yourself, is there knowledge on how to make poses believeable, not painful and natural?

    Thank you!

    You'd think you'd want natural poses... If you mean believable poses in terms of acting, I would suggest gestures, studying people in real life of how they act and pose, playacting to get a feel to a pose, etc. And of course you need to be able to actually draw the human body properly, even an okay pose can be funked up if you can't drawn the anatomy/perspective/foreshortening required for that pose.

    Study how the human body moves, and what poses people take. Every time you see a human, observe the proportions, pose and movement. Learn to make this your automatic reaction.

    With time and attention, your memory will absorb enough of the observation for you to rely on them while drawing.

    You may want to study the line of action. In animation, it leads to somewhat extreme poses, but the underlying principle is useful for posing in general.
