Pose and Gestures Suggestions by Elixirmy Pose and Gestures Suggestions by Elixirmy
I was asked on tumblr on posing and gestures for characters! Posted it there and well it's about time to update my last tutorial/reference and here are some of my suggestions! Like I said on tumblr, please springboard from this. By no means should you follow this EXACT, totally practice it if you'd like. I made it pretty general because I work off from this. I change the line quality, style,etc. along the way. If you use a pose in particular just credit please? 

That's about it, it's no problem for me if you use this because duh! I really hope it helps! There are some typos and mistakes because I made this in no less than an hour and pretty fast. If any questions, let me know!

This is an amazing guide! My drawings no longer look like a bunch of animatronic robots wearing costumes,and for that, I must thank you.
I don't know if this is a weird question or not (Kinda new to the site),but do you mind at all if I mention this guide in a journal entry?

Thanks! You have some nice action lines going, but I really like the arms section the most. The shoulder blades drawing was also a really good hint on how to deal with drawing arms and shoulders.

I agree with all this! I haven't mastered yet my skills over the human body, but when it comes to gestures and poses I do basically the same. You really hit the mark when it came down to it and gave excellent examples!

 Very motivation and inspirational!
