Just some notes about drawing poses in response to a tumblr question - posting in case there's something here that's useful to someone.

Lackadaisy t-shirts are a new thing.

Lackadaisy Volume 1 books are available on Amazon.

Comic updates and other Lackadaisy stuff can be found on Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook.

On the last paragraph I kept erasing and redrawing it til I get it as close to perfect as I can for the time being and then I look at what's wrong and try to redraw it again. I have a hard time giving up on a picture but at least for me it helps me find major flaws in my drawing. I can look at other pictures of similar poses and whatnot and see what they did differently. This page will help a lot, thanks for posting it.

The last paragraph is always one of my biggest roadblocks.  Instead of starting over when I think something isn't working I force myself to 'fix' it because it has to be perfect and I feel obligated to 'get it right the first time'.  On the rare events that I actually do give up and start over or try a different pose, etc. it does come out much better successive tries after.

hey if u don't mind, i am really interested in outfits evolution over centuries!! my favorite are 18 century outfits & the seventies. but it seems you have included more outfits between them. so are they from 18 century till the late 1990s? & i realise there are 2 outfits that looks the same!! are they different timeline or the same?

The point about the line of action is new to me (self-taught here), it never occurred to me to actually sketch a extra-anatomical line of the action flow like that. I'm gonna' just bookmark this

When I make stick figure for my poses, I have trouble with adding the details and stuff a bit..

What is he going to hit with that shovel? ...because that most certainly does not look like digging.

Somebody colored some of these. They gave credit, and I assume they had permission?

Very adorable sketches at the end of your tutorial! I find it cute how you incorporated different clothing from different time periods, for example the roaring 20's flapper girl and bell bottom pants which were popular in the 70's. Very cute indeed!
