This is really a good tutorial. I guess when it comes down to it, we all do a form of dynamics when emoting. It's called body language. We don't just stand stiff as stone, speaking our minds. Also, great to show how a body can betray an emotion. For instance: A hostage in a bank must remain brave, but his fists are clenching; seeing the robbers punch a woman to shut her up.

Agreed! Body language is essential in visual arts. When trying to capture an expression or moment in time, you have to use everything in your tool box to emote without movement and dialogue.

It's even obvious in comics. You've gotta make them act, too!

I've got to thank you for posting this, someone linked me to it when I asked for a critique of something I'm working on. This is really helpful, though I've got to ask--I've only VERY recently started trying with my anatomy, how do you tell when the hips and ribcage (for example) are /too/ angled?

And I'm sorry if that's something of a weird question. XD

There really is no "too angled" if you're trying to be dynamic; just work with what looks best. Obviously, you can't have the hips 180 degrees facing away from the ribcage because that's physically impossible XD But use your own judgement for the angle. See if it looks physically possible, or if it looks like the person would have to break their spine to make the pose. Try doing the pose yourself, to see the limitations of the body, but remember that when drawing dynamic art, it stretches sliiightly beyond human limitations. People in general are very stiff.

:giggle: So unless I'm trying to show a character in immense pain, it is just a case of 'what's natural' for life. Alright, that's very helpful. ^^ Thank you!

a little know fact is that a bit of self drying clay and a hogarth or brigham book really also work wonders for tactile memory retention...

I didn't use any "dynamic pose" or "planning" before drawing, because it will make my character looks weird than before, maybe it is just me.

Diagonals, and the turning and tilting of the 3 elements of the figure D8 There are more tutorials for dynamic poses in the reference folder of my gallery as well

So I need to draw more lines to get my poses right? I'm using pencils D8, I don't want to let my sketch look dirty. I know...eraser will help but...

Yeah I will try =) Thanks!

Nonphotocopy blue pencils work too, but they don't erase too well. I suggest starting the basic structure of your sketch with your pencil just BARELY touching the paper, then gradually getting darker and darker where details are more final.

And as someone who only REALLY started to take drawing seriously within the last 5-6 years, I will admit that at first starting with the extra lines feels really weird and makes everything look worse for a while, but once you get used to it, it helps TREMENDOUSLY.

Like everything else in the world, it just takes practice, and there's no MAGIC technique that makes you a perfect artist overnight, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try any of them.

Yes, practice makes perfect. =) But practice "smart" not "hard"? =)
I don't have a tablet so I will use pencils ( mechanical pencils ) and A4 paper, that's all. I admit that I don't have patience in drawing, I will end up a stupid looking sketch... I will start practicing everyday, bit by bit because I need to study too X_X

Well yes the point of a sketch is to BE as loose as possible, regardless of how clean it is. XDD I recommend using Non-photo blue pencils, as they disappear in a scan/xerox X3 And no prob!

Non-photo blue pencils? Well I think I will start with pencils because I've practiced it for almost 6 years. O_o
Ahh, I don't have a tablet so I need to waste more and more papers for my sketch. D8
I will start using A4 papers tomorrow because my sketchbook is too small. Maybe that is the reason I can't draw well? O_o

Well size of the paper shouldn't matter too much, but draw in whatever size and medium makes you happy n.n
