Pose Reference Pack 1-READ RULES FIRST- NOT A BASE by ChaosSoda Pose Reference Pack 1-READ RULES FIRST- NOT A BASE by ChaosSoda
About this sheet
-------------------------
* This was started because I wanted more pose references for my own personal use.

* I drew every single one of these poses from scratch, with a mechanical pencil.

* The background is patchy because I stitched together five pages of scanned drawings.

* The images are resized, so they look slightly digitally drawn, they're not, it's all pencil.

* This is my 200th deviation.

About the Rules
-----------------------
* I don't want them edited or traced because they're not intended to be used as bases. These exist to help you draw poses by providing a reference. It only helps you if you look at it and draw from scratch.

* While I can't copyright these poses themselves, I CAN copyright the drawings, since... I drew them, so no redistributing. For the same reason, you should link back to this page (it also helps others find this reference)

* If you have a request, make it here, or note me. If you're not specific enough, I can't do it.

* As you can probably tell by the title, I'm really paranoid of people thinking these linearts are bases. Why? Because quite a few people have used my linearts (that say "NOT A BASE" in the artist's comments) as bases in the past.

I want people to learn from this, not trace my exact lines. I learned from referencing poses (and drawing from scratch), too. Also, this is part of why there are no faces.

Extra Comments
----------------------
* If you have any other questions not answered here, feel free to ask me.

* I actually have two sheets of hands (and a pair of feet) stashed away. Maybe I'll post them if they're well received/asked for, even though they're really just my personal practice.

Yeah, sure. That's what they're for.

I mean, I wouldn't hold these up as a pedestal of perfect anatomy (hell, my anatomy has improved probably 100-fold since I drew these two years ago), but as long as you don't trace them, you're free to reference from them as you wish.

You mean reference the pose to make a baseless doll drawn from scratch? That's fine. If you mean trace the pose, then that's not ok, since I just want these referenced, not traced.

and that I can truly understand, though I might trace them so I can see it better.

These are very nice. What ratio do you use? It looks to me to be 6:1, but I'm not sure. I tend to draw 7:1 but my characters never quite look right so I'm thinking of trying 6:1 now. Knowing the ratio you use might help me figure out where I'm going wrong.

Thanks.

I don't think about ratios at all when I draw, I just do it all by sight. I go with what looks right, I never count out height in heads or anything like that, so I won't be much help there.

I might. If I do, it'd be posted with a set of couple/interacting poses. I'm planning to do some couple poses, but whether or not they get posted hinges on how well they turn out.
