    Female Lion Tamer Anatomy WIP

    Working on another circus poster concept piece, similar to the last one (which you can see [here] as style reference)


    Here's the rough sketch. I'm trying to nail down her anatomy really tightly.

    While it is more stylized proportions, even stylization must rely on a bedrock of well informed real-life anatomy. So I'd like to see this run through the wringer so I can fix the kinks while they're still small and easy to crush. Sort of like children.

    The only anatomical qualm that I have at the moment is the length of the arms, especially the nearer one which seems really short and not terribly foreshortened based on the angle of the arm (it's not really pointed towards us). But more importantly, I think you could get a more much expressive pose than this. She's a lion tamer with two whips, but she's just standing straight with her arms out. Give her a power pose and let her really use those things.

    Right hand is going to be her scratching the chin of a lion. I totally agree on the pose though. I'm going to try and shift her weight so that she has a more dynamic pose. maybe bend her knee a little more.

    Also yeah that foreshortening is terrible! I'm terrible at foreshortening. I think I need to make her hand bigger

    No dude, it's not the proportions. It's the angle. The arm cannot be foreshortened if it's not angled towards us in space. Draw it like a cylinder with the ellipses going around the form to see its perspective. Also the lion appears to be behind her in space and her torso is turned in the other direction; I don't think she can bend her arm like that to scratch it's chin.
