ended up turning one of the poses into atom eve from invincible. the pose reminded me more of catwoman but I opted for atom eve just cause.
i always use references when drawing but turning the reference into the drawing felt more difficult for some reason.
these are my gesture sketches. I took 5 mins per pose. looking back i probably should have tried 2 mins even though i wasnt confident about it.in regards to my gestures feel like i need work but not sure on what, think i just dont do these enough to really get the idea.
