TRSE: How To Draw Tutorials:
Various Poses of Body, Arms and Legs
Drawing the characters in poses are usually not easy
especially for the beginners, and more complicated the poses are, harder
it it will to draw them. There are almost no limit to the numbers of the
poses the characters can display, and I can cover only some of them. The
diagrams are to help give you some ideas on how to draw the various poses
of the characters. Please note that the diagrams do the "most of the talking",
and drawn on an assumption that that you already have reviewed the previous
courses. If you haven't previewed the previous courses, please check them
out first so to be able to understand the diagrams and explanations provided.

To learn how a human body moves and the limits of how much it can move, you can just experiment with your own body, look up the pictures in the books/magazines or observe other people in action. Watching the gymnasiums in the Olympics can be of a great assistance. If you want to draw an exact pose, but you don't know how to do it, just ask someone else to pose for you.
