Character Posing and Facial Expressions.

I decided to start off with creating an overall shape of the body that I'm going to use to start off with, including various poses. I used some refrences on Google images and some that I thought of to create them, usally ones that use a lot of movement.

Update: 7/10/15

Been spending a lot of time sketching and getting refrences from Google. I chose to go for poses that were out of my comfort zone, which made it more challenging to draw and a lot of trial and error.

( I also used Photoshop just to make them more brighter and easier to see.)

When practicing expressions, I chose to do the eyes and mouth separately on various angles so I can be ready to do them on a character. (This was supposed to be uploaded earlier, but the card reader for my camera was busted and I only got a new one two days ago, so sorry for the delay.)

Added both the mouth and eyes together on a basic character. Some of these expressions were a mix of some that I thought of and some of them were trail and error while adding various angles of the head's position. (Sorry if some of these heads are blurry, the camera kept focusing on the centre of the picture.)

This was orignally going to be uploaded after New Years Eve, but I was kept busy with family and friends. My main focus in the picture was the poses of the characters to try and compliment each other and nothing else. (Light was a bit off so apologies if the character in the middle is not as dark as the other.)

I was originally going to do this update about a week ago, but life has been keeping me busy. I been doing a lot of thumbnails in so I can have a go on doing them on a larger scale. (The one on the top right of the page was one I've been spending a lot of time working on.)

The completed version. (Bad lighting again, sorry.)

And now, even more poses were created; this time I tried to add a bit more variation in the movement and the perspective of each one.

Well, it has been quite a delayed update, but it has been quite a journey for me. These two drawings were based off an idea I had for a hero for Overwatch. I chose to re-draw it on a larger scale so I can try and add more detail and try a better pose for him. ( Apologies for these two being sideways, couldn't fix it :( . )
