Flame Sniper - Pose Reference


Badge Awards

Important Notes:

I have no archery training; `jademacalla was kind enough to allow me to use his bow and give me some basic tips. Thus, these are probably not accurate references for a skilled archer. These photos were taken with a non-realistic approach to archery in mind; they are more geared to the magical and the fantasy. Please consider this when using them for reference.

Please refrain from making comments about the model's ability. I am already aware of the shortcomings of the technical aspects.


Funded through Kickstarter.

Big thanks to `jademacalla for the photography on these.

This was part of the Kickstarter with Jade. I don't have the safety equipment or studio space for this on my own, but there's more coming soon from our more recent Kickstarter! :D
May I use this pose for a male character if it’s alright with you?
