I'm posting these on here and the life sketching blog, because I feel like I've made a breakthrough with my approach. These are taken from a book called 'Anatomy For Fantasy Artists', by Glenn Fabry. I'm not planning on becoming a fantasy artist, but it's got some great figure reference photos with some interesting poses, and it's great practice. I started these very loose and sketchy, which was the main breakthrough for me. It helped me get accurate anatomy, before now I've always had some kind of proportion issues, or the pose hasn't been quite accurate. Starting as loose as possible gave me a clearer view of both these areas. I feel like a weight has been lifted.
