    Currently drawing cosplays for my main oc peep Max of certain characters I like from fighting games.
    At first, It was going pretty well since I was able to make something I was quite proud of when I took a shot
    at drawing Amane from Blazblue
    The Doodle in Question (open)

    But Then I took a shot at drawing Hibiki...

    God this guy is hard to nail down!

    The clothing and Features are the easy part, Hey I already know how I want to incorporate
    the piece of cloth that hangs off of him like a scarf. But the guy's poses...

    I have no idea how to draw them and to be honest that's part of the reason I wanna ya know?
    There so dynamic and lively; I just wanna use them everywhere but can't because I just don't
    know where to begin.

    Whether it's a link to a tutorial, Amazing references to those kinds of movements/poses or you yourself
    showing how it's done with a doodle or two. I really would appreciate any help I can get on this venture =)

    For getting energy in poses, use lines of action: https://www.google.com/search?q=lin...nNPUAhVK04MKHRjpAE8Q_AUICigB&biw=1920&bih=984

    Two of the images you posted show examples of contrasting lines of action.

    And of course, construction lines will help with experimenting with poses and getting foreshortening right.

    Don't know if you're familiar with construction drawing, so if you aren't, I highly recommend reading http://illustrationisland.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/andrew-loomis-fun-with-a-pencil.pdf

    Wow, Didn't even know lines of action was a thing; Awesome!
    Really worth looking into later on tomorrow. n_n

    And Thanks for the link also dude!
    I haven't heard of construction drawing yet but it sounds like something that's really familiar to what I do now. Where I basically draw the outline of a stick figure I pose like so and just add detail =)
