PEN&TECHNIQUE Although this chapter seems small. and included paints regarding face and hair. This includes poses which are usually ·fficult to draw and about 200 commmonly drawn poses. is a collection of poses. I have included a variation of heroes from different genres and rried to recreate them as "hard" characters. I have tried to summerize it so it is easily understood.Where possible. we have edited it to include the necessary fundamental techniques which can be obtained easily with minimum effort. As I :mt an illustrator. It includes how to draw the smart body indespensable to "super" haracters. You can add clothing and complete your own characters. The collection of poses might be a reference guide for drawing your original work. I have drawn them with a T-shirt or tank top so you can easily understand the body motion and form. I thjnk what makes this book attractive is the unification of hnique and poses. Based on a theme.The main theme of this book is how to draw tough and hardboiled characters and thier expressions. POSES This chapter as the name suggests. when I compiled this collection of poses I kept · mind "wouldn't it be great to h1.
