Hey guys! Bea here!
In my effort to get better at poses, I decided to take a different approach to the commissions, and take the featured characters of individual mocks that I’ve made, and put them on a separate sheet and paint them all at one time, so, that’s what these are!
Little late on the warning, but yes, these contain nudity– but nothing explicit,so I hope these don’t offend anyone.
It’s a common practice of mine to draw/paint my figures nude, prior to clothing them, because I want to make sure that the figures and poses are believable and as accurate as can be underneath it all. The cool thing is, these make for great figure and lighting studies too!
How did I come upon these poses? Well, I sketched them out first, looked for references, and found the best ones I could, then I loaded up my 3D software with realistic models, posed them according to my references/sketches, got the angles I wanted, and drew them! It’s a lengthy process yes, but it allows me the benefit of studying life and applying my imagination to it, in the best way possible.
To tell you a bit about each study, the first girl is going to be featured in an illustration I’m working on called Cicada, and is a water nymph. The second girl is for a commission on a book about Irish werewolves, and she’s the lead girl. The male is an African American slave, that I’m painting for the cover of a book series called Hebrews to Negroes about the history and lineage of Africans, and the final figure is for the FANGIRL illustration I’m working.
I do have another lineup of four characters coming in the next few days which I’ve been working on as well, but yeah, just a quick show of what I’ve been up to! More arts coming soon!
Hope you liked these studies– and as always, till next time, Enjoy!
