AA: So this was our first thing, since I noticed this Posemaniacs monstrosity while browsing for cool poses to reference from. Seeing this now, I wonder if this site is really a good place to go for references…
I was so off balance for this thing. I barely managed the tilt of the body without falling over. I didn’t tilt the camera or the Posemaniac’s pose at all for this. Pose referenced from this. Another thing that turned out to be impossible to duplicate was that 90 degree bend in the model’s spine.
And finally… There was no way someone could legitimately shoot a gun and hit things while standing like that. OR if they were capable of it, there is HONESTLY no reason to.
AA: Here’s some other pictures. I’m the one in the white shirt, and CA is in the black camisol. She is posing in a natural and comfortable way, while I am mimicking to the best of my ability the pose in the reference. It might not look bad, but it HURTS.
