Male Pose References by artdweeber Male Pose References by artdweeber
There's a depressing lack of male pose references that aren't fighting or standing stiff and boring. Thought I'd contribute to it. :)

My references were found at [link]

That site is a freaking excellent resource

It's been so long sine I have been in a drawing class or tried to draw something that wasn't a boring still-life. Trying to get back into drawing people feels really difficult, especially since all the live models I can use are female, which makes fleshing out male characters oh so hard. (Uhhh, no puns intended.)
I thank you kindly for the references, and hope to upload a sketch or something soon.

"There's a depressing lack of male pose references that aren't fighting or standing stiff and boring"

That's funny, I was recently thinking the same thing (I found this picture when I was searching for realistic pictures of males in more varied situations).

This looks like a really valuable reference. Thanks for making this.

no problem!

you know what sucks is that in order to make this I actually converted female bodies into male bodies in the sketch, that website I was referencing has the same reference problem.

It's a shame that society as a whole doesn't realize that men have lifes aside from fighting each other.

If you're looking for more male poses, try looking up Greek/Roman statues (they have a surprising variety of non-fighting male poses)

The site's great and I used one of your sketches as reference; for a female, but I hope you don't mind: [link]
