Here is a quick drawing aid I created for artist trying to lay out character poses. This isn't a perfect tool but it should help newbies to sketch out different poses and get an idea on how to lay out different structures of the human body. If you use this digitally just create a new layer and turn the opacity down on this layout and draw over top. The proportions aren't perfect so experiment to see how it works for you. The sketches on the sides show you a couple of quick renderings I made with this tool. Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions. Good luck with your art!
I have never been truly bad with poses, I think everyone knows how the joints move. But this is an amazingly accurate tool.
Glad you like it. I will post a better one when I have more time. Be sure to show me some of the poses you come up with!
Oh wow this is neat! I think I'll make good use of this
