Let's look at posing with the program.
When we all started using HM, we all start with the basic pose.
This is the easiest to accessorize with all the costume pieces and items. Let's skip on how the final pic will look and play with changing sizes and angles on the body items. We all have different views on what shape people should be. Reading comics for years has shown me that there are many different takes and styles that artists use to depict their characters. So why not experiment using the versatility of the program. In the example below, I have not changed any items used for the body shape above, but have changed sizes and position.
Not a huge change, but a little more dynamic for a posing superhero or medieval knight. When I first started, this opened my eyes to how I wanted MY heroes/villains to look. I started looking for references pics and use them to create some dynamic poses. I call it "Bending the program". Soon I started to progress with knowledge of the pieces and how they would "bend" to what I wanted them to look like.
I encourage you to play with this exercise to create better foundations to making some awesome pics!
For newer users, a review of SDR’s Articulated Man would be great, included below
Dude! I was saving that one. LOL.
That is a great tutorial. He really has a great take and made me look at posing in a different light. Sean! Come back and visit!
Thanks for posting that Worf. Hope you and your loved ones are safe and sound amidst the insanity currently circulating.
Hahahaha! Sorry about that! 😉
There are some other poses in that whole thread that are worth going through as well, so there is still some material for you to review. Hehehe
And yeah, everyone is fine here, hope all your people are fine as well.
