WARNING: OLD ART!! The art and comments in this Deviation may no longer represent the artist's current views or interests.

Dynamic poses! I love them, love drawing them, love playing with them, and :iconthe-oc-consortium:'s latest contest was the perfect excuse to put pencil to paper. Unfortunately, as I am offering a free commission for the first prize winner, I am unable to compete, but it was fun nonetheless.

Ok ok ok, I know I can tell you it's a great picture because the lightning is great and so forth, butttttt I feel like I can't get past the fact that it's JAMES holding on to Louis (his waist more specifically ;) ) in an attempt not to be blown up by outside forces. I can't keep a straight face while looking at it. How grumpy is James going to be afterwards about this little endeavor?

Grumpy, because when Louis lands he lets James fall unceremoniously onto the floor while he just ~steps~ over him on those long, slender legs.

Even during an explosion, Louis' hair and makeup is still absolutely fabulous.

No way will I be able to participate in that contest until I get better, so good luck to everyone else!

Still, I'm afraid I don't have a completely original OC. All my characters are technically fan characters, so I'm automatically ineligible.

Quarter-Virus Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2013  Professional Filmographer
It depends on the fan character. My game OCs are allowed into the group, because the world I create for them is based on someone else's world, but I put enough of a twist on it to create entirely separate stories of my own.

Hm... The only OC I can really think of using is my "Rise of the Guardians" OC, Holly Lynn.
Most of her biography is here (Along with her reference picture... Urgh, this one is a little outdated; I'm working on drawing a better one)

She's my only OC that I can imagine having a lot of great dynamic poses.

Awesome, I can almost feel the explosion's shock wave on my skin! Also, their moderately over-the-top expressions are wonderful.

Dynamic poses are fun to watch, but unfortunately they're kinda hard to draw... though I guess practically pro-artists like you are an exception.

It just takes practice. I sketched a thumbnail of their pose from the side--a much easier profile to manage--and then mentally turned  the camera around so that I could draw them from this angle. One year ago I actually attempted this very same image, but couldn't manage the extreme proportions then. Just keep at it, and you can only get better.

It was originally a panel from a comic I attempted to draw over a year ago, when they were in the early stages of character development. However, I lacked the skill at the time to pull of the awkward angle. It was also a comic that focused more on dry banter, and not on their canonical relationship, so we'll have to see if it makes it into the final cut.

And so it came to pass that Louis was never again allowed to be in charge of planning James' birthday parties.

My other theory was a pub crawl gone very very wrong but for some reason this just seems like something that would happen if you let Louis plan a party :)

I draw all my teeth like that, especially for more exaggerated expressions, or when a character is glowering. Indicating incisors are a good way of simplifying teeth without making them completely flat.

James clearly has excellent hand-eye coordination given that Louis isn't much wider than the rope.

Extreme perspective is always a nightmare with Louis. How does one draw those skinny legs getting closer, without making them look fat ... hrrm.
