I tried


I gave the poses a try. As you can see, there are a few differences, in that I did them as full-body, not cropped (it's kind of a thing for me, I think...), and I didn't attempt any drapery as I thought that would make it more difficult. Again, not sure if I helped you, but I did make the attempt, in any case:

Thanks, Ben.

oooh what an awesome thread - thanks very much!

Ben, once again THANK YOU!!

You've exceeded my expecations. I love that they are full body, the lighting is perfect, and they are just right for the spots where I needed the reference. In fact I'm sure I'll adjust a few more spots than I thought needed it.

Last but not least, thank you for doing them so fast. After reading how much you go through to do these photo sessions, I didn't expect them so fast.

I will restrain from more requests, until I have put these to use. Thanks again. Take care, and I'll see you here again soon.

Thanks Cris!

Thank you, Intervain, I appreciate the kind comment.

You're welcome, Werepumpkin. I do hope they're helpful. I wasn't expecting to have the time quite so soon either, but then I did, so I tried it. I'm pleased to think I kind of "back-interpretted" the lighting okay, from your drawing. I was hoping it wasn't a bit "too much" contrast (although I think it's potentially easier to change/fix that in photoshop or similar, if necesary, than to go the other way....).

You're right about the lighting, Ben, it's easier to tone it down, than to add detail where there is none.

This is an incredible resource

Ben, thank you so much for doing this! If possible whenever you have the time, could you do forshortening poses? Also, could you take close ups of your head, hands, and feet in various angles (those are the trickiest parts to draw for me). Again there is no rush on this and I'll post the results I get from the poses. Thanks again!

Any foreshortening in particular that you're looking for? These are a few that I've done fairly recently that I think include some foreshortening:

I haven't had much success at the close-up shots, though I've tried a couple of times - just never been very happy with the results. These are probably the "closest":

just want to leave some thankfull words here too.
this thread is great and i will keep looking in here. its like christmas and birthday merging together and unexpected jumping out of a box called webspace. many thanks!

Thanks (again) Werepumkin! Obviously these were some that I had already done previously, and added here based on Seansea's request. As I've done thousands of them, I think this thread will (have to) be limited to whatever is specifically requested.

Thanks DarioCoelho! I hope that my creating this type of reference imagery is helpful to you and others in your artistic pursuits. I have enjoyed and do enjoy doing it, for the opportunity to help and support figurative art, and I very much hope that it does.

Thanks Ben!

I have to be more careful and fully look through what you already have done (whoops). Those were the types of forshortening shots I was looking for! And your closeups are fine. I can always zoom in and crop if I need to go closer. Again, I'm very thankfull that you are taking the time to do this!
