IFX - Strike A Pose by WarrenLouw IFX - Strike A Pose by WarrenLouw
IFX - Strike A Pose (2009)

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS SPECIFICALLY A POSING TUTORIAL. The female figures used are exaggerated to help accentuate what is normally hidden/too subtle to identify and to differentiate between the different portions. The angling of the poses are of an expressionate and confident nature to once again stress the different portions when posed in various ways. This is NOT a tutorial about human anatomy.

Here's the workshop I did for ImagineFX for their 49th issue (November 2009). In terms of layout, this is my own personal version with some extra features. I shared as much as I could for the time I had, so I hope this will be helpful to you guys!

This informative and well-laid out tutorial will help you perfect your character's posture and clarify your drawing's message." ( Suggested by LibertineM and Featured by UnicornReality )

Brilliant tutorial. . .
by far the best tutorial about posing and all element that essential in making a painting works, especially for people like me who sometimes gets too bogged down to anatomical accuracy
