Mentor Experiment: Week 1: Attitude Poses

Okay, everyone…

We’re going to start off with a warm-up exercise.

Draw one full body character attitude pose for each of the expressions described below. Use the same character for each expression. The character is a heavy-set, but tall male.

1. Tired

2. Happy

3. Angry

The characters’ poses should clearly convey the expression without having to look at the face of the character.

If you’re playing along, post a link to your results in the comments below. Apprentices have already been given the assignment. Due on Wednesday!
