Artists from photographers to painters to those who draw and craft sculptures often share one thing in common. They use models to develop their pieces. And while simply creating works based on a model is technically simple, in reality, that is not always the case. In fact, many artists run the risk of missing one of the simplest yet most essential parts of the process – having the model posed in a proper and artistic position.
In a prior article, I mentioned the PoseMuse series of books by author Justin R Matrin. I felt that the essential information provided was something I should reiterate.
While geared toward drawing, the poses can work for pretty much any type of artist activity.
