I've been studying a lot on how to strengthen the pose of figures. S curves, squeeze and stretch and all that jazz. Here are some sketches I've done on just that. Iterating on the reference until I find a pose that's much stronger than the photo. I believe that people should use reference more often but I feel like some don't know how. Usually, it's a problem of staying too true to the reference instead of just using it as basis for something better.
Maybe this will help someone :)

It's been a while. I go through phases where I'm updating every day to completely forgetting I even have a blog. Anyway, here's quite a bit of awaited image dump.
wip painting of how much I miss summer and hate winter. Really like how the environment is turning out but hate the girl and her faaace. Major rehaul on that section when finished.
some progress on the gazebo painting, still no where near done.
