Tutorial 9 More Pushing Poses by shermcohen Tutorial 9 More Pushing Poses by shermcohen
#9 in a series of 12 tutorial sheets created for the SpongeBob crew in 2005 (4th season) and the second on "Pushing Your Poses." You can often turn a plain old pose into something much more expressive...just treat your drawing as an actor and "ham it up!" Exaggerate the acting and put the most emphasis where the emotion affects the movement.

This sheet is basically a demonstration of the "line of action" principles from the earlier tutorials. Dynamic angles (see tutorial #7) have also been used to replace the more straight-up-and-down weaker poses.

Attempted action lines once... the character I drew looked like he was either about to snap his back, or made of rubber. :(

One of the things I've been really trying to make myself remember is to push characters actions further.
I've been drawing Ed Edd n Eddy fan art for practice (making a comic for fun) and after I drew it all out I realized how static it all was. Those characters do wild-takes to the max and I wasn't using them to their full potential. So every day I tell myself (in completely off-subject situations) to remember when I draw to try to push the poses further.

We'll see if I ever learn. lol.

Thanks for these tutorials. They're like little bits of stuff we should already know but we get our little "Oh yeah!" moment when it's put into words and visuals like this. :)

Will do! I think I'll start that mini-series I've been meaning to do called "cramped" where I draw characters cramped in small spaces, but not so tight that there's no vivid motions in the scene. Meh, I'll have to show you, lol. I can be bad at explaining myself at times...

Those are very cute expressions for the characters as well. Think it's the little things like these that help me with my expressions for them.

Awww, it looks like the author's comment is only limited to 6 thumbs. :( But I have seen all of them, so it's not a big deal. :)

I think this is a nice tutorial sheet because it's interesting to see there are many forms of running. :D :+fav:

No problem. :D The funny thing is that I haven't noticed you could actually show thumbnails on the author's comment until you did. ^^; So yeah, that's kind of a new experience to me.
