DAZ models for anime poses. - Jen Gagne's art journal
I keep a separate journal for personal stuff. Visit:
DAZ models for anime poses.|
You mean the plastic models? Yeah. If they were shorter-torso'd they'd match more. And the male one is way too buff compared to the typical anime guy.
I also have a really nice Motoko Kusanagi poseable I could use for drawing, but she's even less flexible.
So... eh. I think these computeriffic ones will do nicely. ^_^ Obviously I hope someday to be able to draw outta my head, but these will definitely help meanwhile.

There's a very funny thread that I think you can reach from girl-wonder.org that mocks an incredibly sexist set of essays on how to draw
women comic book style. I thought of it because that lady with the cocked hip and jutting butt is typical. (And I don't think Makoto ever stands like that...) Anyway, the mockers go on to draw a bunch of male comic characters in the "recommended" female poses... very, very funny.
The Karen Healy who writes "Girls Read Comics--And They're Pissed!" column at g-w is my very good friend karenhealey
Well, there IS the GitS manga. Somehow almost every page manages to twist her around to show T&A at the same time, or a big high open-leg kick. :> But -- even though she's constantly dressed in weird lingerie? She never has a coquettish thing going on.
It's kinda like Naga in Slayers. Sure, she's dressed in a bikini and they make a big deal out of her boobs, but she seems to have _no_ innate sexuality. Heh.
As for fantasy whores... they do sell lots of classic pin-up poses for the male and female models. Some are decidedly stripperish! Hee. :D
That sounds like a great thread. I should go find it!
I am always amused when I go to Artist's Alley and see guys drawing anatomical impossibilities, like nipples with holes in 'em as if it's a baby bottle...
I never actually do, but sometimes I'm tempted to say, "Perhaps you haven't given the real thing a close examination, but don't you have access to _any_ porn, my dear boy?"
But then I remember: I'm sure my drawing screw stuff up in my own special way. ;)
