Pose Reference Pack 2-READ RULES FIRST-NOT A BASE by ChaosSoda Pose Reference Pack 2-READ RULES FIRST-NOT A BASE by ChaosSoda
About this sheet
-------------------------
* This is a continuation of my first pose pack. I drew all of these poses today.

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

* The background is patchy because I stitched together multiple pages of scanned drawings, just like the last pack.

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

* I actually did rear views (for girls) this time. Maybe I'll do some rear views for guys later, but I don't know. I don't think I've ever drawn a male from behind before, actually (maybe I have, I can't recall).

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.

* If you're wondering why they're all sitting, it's because 1) I need practice with sitting poses, and 2) there aren't a lot of sitting refs, they seem to be mostly standing.

This is really great! I was looking at non-drawn images for reference and I just couldn't get some done. This will be very helpful

There's a pose in here that I just can't draw without looking at. Would you mind if I used the pose? I would say where I got it from, and send a link back to here.

The point of these is to be references, so yeah, you can do that if you're just going to look at it for reference.

However, if you wanted to trace it, that wouldn't be ok. Looking as a reference is fine, though.

Oh I won't trace them! I never have. I just needed to use one of the poses cuz I had this idea for a drawing and I just can't get the pose right. Thank you and if you like I'll link it to you so you can see.

So many poses~ ^_^
If I ever get myself to focus on drawing humans again, then these will really be helpful. :>

These are really good, and I hope to use them since I'm trying to practice a bunch of poses myself lately. Will you do any couple poses? Or do you have some out that I'm missing?
Either way, I can't wait to see more of these!

Thanks. I would like to do couple poses in the future, so I plan to at least try (though I won't post them unless they're of decent quality).

As of now, there's one couple reference in the first pack, but that's it.

Yep, I just found the first pack and the couple pose. <3
But if you do post some couple poses, I'll be sure to use them for practice! I've been wanting to draw a lot lately, and the reference packs you posted inspired me...the only problem I have now is like..outfits. they always block me OTL

It's poses that block on me (or who to draw, since I'm afraid of screwing up the characters I really like). I design random costumes as a hobby, so as long as I'm inspired, they're not a problem for me.

I don't do this (not since I had to for fashion class in high school, anyway), but some others have said that looking at all sorts of different things (anything from objects to architecture, to pieces of fruit) inspires them to design costumes.

Also, glad the packs inspired you.

Ah, I'm actually using gaia avis for inspiration, since Gaia has so many nice items to begin with, then the outfits people come up with with all of them are fun too.
and I feel that way too!! I'm afraid to draw characters I like because I don't want to mess up the pose and make them look bad!

I mostly do outfits based on whatever I'm into. Whenever I really like something, I design my own costume to fit into that world. It's oddly immersive, actually. I won't post those here, though-too paranoid they'll end up on someone's OC.

I'm ok with the poses now, I'm just afraid I won't be able to do them justice, or I'll get the face wrong, and they'll end up looking girly. Which is a problem, considering every single one of my favorite characters is male.

I'd die if someone said "Oh, hey, she's pretty" about one of them, that's one of the biggest self-esteem killers out there (and I used to hear that a lot, but about different characters)for me, since I've been trying for years to get guys right.

ME TOO. WHY ARE GUYS SO HARD TO DRAW ;-;
I'm better at drawing girls but I have so many males I'd prefer to draw...and The sad part of that is, most of my favorite male characters can't even be MILDLY girly. (like Snow Villiers, or Adam Blade. Those are muscle houses. XD )

and yeah I can feel you about the outfits. I'd be afraid of someone taking them too, Especially if I spent so much time making it just for this character..and then someone is just like "Hey that's pretty, it's gonna be mine now, k?" NO! D<

It's some kind of bad for me, drawing the guys I like, since a lot of them happen to have rather long hair (some of them have longer hair than I do). While they might not have girly bodies, some people like to ignore that (even when I draw it correctly!) and say "Heeeeyyyy~ who's that girl?" and I just die inside. At least one person did that on the favorite characters meme (which is missing my present favorite, and isn't as good as my male bodies now), asking me who the "girl" was, when I'm fairly sure I stated (at least in the comments) that ALL the people there were male .__________.;

Thanks. I needed practice, so I decided to do these and share them so others can maybe get some use out of them, too.
