Wow, these are amazing! I love the way there are so many different body types, from thin to a fair to...a little chubby Isorry xD I haven't quite mastered anatomy myself ^^' but it looks like you sure know what your doing I really need to work on my male anatomy the most, its surprisingly hard for me. A lot of people say 'males are the easiest' but, not if you me I guess (o u o)
Your welcome <3 continue on with the great work! I think guys are fun to draw because sometimes girls get old to draw ^^' plus the guid lines for guys are more fun, or at least mine are. I do my guid lines weird though. I draw a head and a small line for the neck, then I add a line for the shoulders and a line for the torso (to indicate how it will bend or if it bends at all) Then I add a line for hips and draw two lines from the shoulder line to the hip line. It looks kid of silly, and is hard to explain but it helps me draw so
These were all done without reference of any kind, so to say, they came from my head :>
Although, when I am learning poses that are more complex to me I reference from certain mangas, or rather, I'd stare at the poses for a long time trying to understand the structure and sometimes attempt to draw it for myself.
I understand, you mean like transforming the pose in the photo into 3d chunks in your brain before reconstructing it ? It's pretty cool these all are from head though From my head I only draw standing position and awkward hug positions thanks
