90 SECOND POSES





8 x 10 graphite
I found this site called posemaniacs that have quick poses to sketch from. It was great to practice that way. At first I did the drawing and then ounce the pose was done I went back on my drawings and accentuated a few lines.

Thank you That site is really fun . I wish they had longer poses too or even facial expressions that would be cool too.
