It sounds like you also wanted to know how we come to the ideas of posing. There are a lot of published comics out there, and action movies, etc. Speaking for myself, I decide on the content of the picture before I start, so I know why the characters are posed at all. I know what each character is doing, saying, thinking, and where in each action they are. So if something is blowing up, only the clueless, suicidal, showoff, insane, or invulnerable is standing casually. Besides canned poses you can use or copy from Google searches, it helps if you’ve actually been IN the pose. My little ones have a laughfest when I’m testing out poses or half-posing and bending around to look at myself. Just don’t injure yourself.
