I'd like to see some perspective people laying - on a bed, on a futon or the floor.  From different angles.

Yay for group poses! :happybounce: Amongst your options I like perspective the best, I would especially love perspective poses that looks like you are all flying ;)


Other than that, something I would love to see is group poses with a fantasy or fairytale theme! Like doing magical things, maybe performing an ancient ritual or portraying something mythological like nymphs and satyrs frolicking about or at leisure. Not necessarily in a romantically way, but touching, leaning on each other cuddling up together. Or fairies interacting in a group animately talking with each other or maybe just people sitting around a fire telling stories :meow:


And dancing, if possible lifting each other up while doing it, twirling around, dancing like fairies in a ring. Or some medieval type of dancing or courtship. Maybe also two people dancing while the other one is playing an instrument. :boogie:

 Hey, I have not seen your collaborators before, so thanks for opening my eyes to them^^ I voted perspective, because I find that the most difficult, but really, everything is valuable.

I voted casual interactions. But I do like it all. Perspective is needed if I am to grow; I also like romance--hammocks, walking, cuddles, proposals in different angles, near-kisses, etc.. You do whatever you want but I'm just here to brainstorm some things for ya. Thank you for reading!

I'd love to say 'do everything' but I voted for perspective groups. However, the top two I'd like to see more of are casual group interactions and perspective groups. I find that static 'portrait' poses, static poses, and even romantic or combat poses are common. That a lot of the poses take place with the group relatively on the same plane in the photo rather than having a clear separation of foreground, middle ground, and background.

For more advanced storytelling as well as a greater level of art challenge I think group interactions and perspective groups would knock the socks off of everyone and provide a fantastic, DD worthy, stock-photo/ref series.

Yeah I agree! I was kind of thinking of that but I couldn't figure out how to communicate the different perspective idea. Unique perspective angles on casual interactions would be super helpful since they only way to get those is to take awkward photos of your friends and then you still don't know how stuff looks since you can't properly see how their limbs and body look- you can only get stick figure guidelines at best. :/

After seeing it on the list I realized that stock of people interacting in perspective/with a lot of foreshortening is really rare, and would be extremely helpful :D

Woooow! So many great stock artists! This should be a great shoot. No matter what the result is I know I'll find something useful.

But one pose I've always wanted and can't find on DA is kabe-don pose. You know that stereotypical pose from anime and manga -

I think a few group shots of you guys interacting while sitting down (on stools next to each other, on a couch, the floor...) would be helpful, especially for group scenes like characters just casually hanging out at home or out in a restaurant/bar. There is a lot of random photos of that you can find anywhere, but it's always hard to see how the body and limbs look since people are normally clothed. 

If you need ideas what specifically to do while "casually sitting" you could do a scene where one model is telling them a story and the other two are laughing, another one where people are leaning back relaxing drinking beer? xD You could even do one where they are leaning forward on a table/bar talking during a meal? o:

I'm not sure what angle it should be, but I did some doodle bobs to try and help show what I mean. Pose Suggestions

I am looking for some stock images . One pose i am looking for is a female model leaning very far forward looking directly at the viewer hand under the chin so the head rests on it, head tilted slightly to one side, with an expression of unconditional love. I have seen a few images that have one or two of these elements but none with all of them.

I'm more looking for suggestions here for a group shoot, but I can put this on my general suggestions list. Would it be a portrait? 
Reply
:iconconnoramone:
ConnoRamone Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
most likely a portrait yes it need not be a full body picture. It would be in coloured pencils. It is based on a look i once saw in real life when I was a student. I may make the request to many stock producers. I do not intend to share the picture outside DA. I just want to recreate a memory
There is a potential for a group picture when I was a student at  university I had bad social anxiety. I was in a lecture and had an anxiety attack  I was sitting with my head in hands my attention focused inwards. the other students were looking at the lecturer at the front of the room apart from the one student who was looking across at me in the leaning forward pose i mentioned. I saw her when I looked up and across to the left. after the feeling the anxiety had subsided. I thought it could have made a good picture as everyone  was looking forward apart from myself and the other student. I could potentially draw the full scene as well as the portrait, if I got a large sheet of paper

Hey there guys! I've been a fan of you for doing these amazing references. It really helps so much :D

Anyway, I was just wondering since I was one of the deviants who voted for the "I have suggestions" option, have you guys ever thought of making like, action pose references but in video form? Because I was thinking of maybe you guys can help out with animators as well!
Just my thoughts^^

Anywhoo good luck with future references and keep up the good work! :thumbsup:

Kwilia Featured By Owner Edited Feb 1, 2018  Student General Artist
actually a series of photos would be better for animators than a video. There is a nice library of such resources at www.bodiesinmotion.photo/ but after contemplating for a while about subscribing I came to the conclusion that too few of their actions would be helpful for me to warrant paying that amount of money from my student budget... 

I hope that link will give you ideas how to approach moving reference, since needing to stop a video at the right moments is reeeeaaalllyy frustrating :) especially if you notice something off in your animation after having already moved on...

edit: having said that I looked at the page again and realized they have these 3dscans that could be extremely helpful, not only for drawing but also 3d modelling o.o I may have to take another look at the subscription prices...

thanks for the tips! Sounds like burst shooting then picking out key points would be best then?

Kwilia Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2018  Student General Artist
You might want to ask a professional animator for the best advice... My opinion: it depends on how many pictures you're prepared to include in a movement. Just having the key moments would be enough for a pro animator, especially for 3d, but for a beginner 2d animator it would be really helpful to have enough frames in between to get a good idea of the pacing and how the limbs move between the key points. If you want the pacing to be correct, make sure the frames per second is constant. It might be tempting to devote more photos to moments where there is more movement, but it would be really hard to figure out the right pacing when referencing that.
