Dagger Danger - Wide by Marat86 Dagger Danger - Wide by Marat86
While sorting out my photographs folder I found this sequence of holding a dagger menacingly (well sort of :P) and wanted to share it.

Hope you guys find it useful.

OMG, an actual turn-around of the same pose, that's suuuuuper useful. :la: Haven't seen a lot of stock providers doing that, that's just perfect for studies of a form in 3D space. Huge thank you for this! Ah, so happy I found your gallery :heart:

Your friend was so damn right, I almost squeaked a little with joy when saw the turn-around shot, priceless kind of reference! :D Gosh, it only now occurred to me, the camera wasn't rotating, you were actually taking the same pose from different perspective each time, right?

Haha, you're welcome :D I've never fully understood the purpose of dA's llamas, but they are cure little things, a nice little way to say thank you to all the lovely people. Just you wait, 40 more of these little guys and your llama will go albino. New level of awesomness :XD:

Yes you are correct it was me rotating you can tell because of some irregularities in the poses.

Can wait for my !!SUPER-Llama!! (exclamation marks are a must) to rich albino level of awesomness!! La la la la

Yeah, small irregularities, but the obvious pointer would be that the wall is always behind you :rofl: But great job on keeping the pose practically the same all the time, that level sorcery is unreachable for me. Every time I shoot references for my paintings posing myself it's a world of pain. :D Set the camera - set the timer - run away and strike the pose-come back to check... perfect, but I need to move that hand a lil bit to the left - set the timer - run to the spot - come back to check - the hand is correct now, but the whole body is like facing completely different direction *rinse, repeat* *3 hours later* :iconfliptableplz: *go sit in the corner and cry a little* :XD:

Haha, yep, llamas are too exciting to be used without exclamatory marks... and la emote :D Here goes, this one is waiting for that albino llama =>

I messed up that emoticon somehow.. *facepalm*..well i live and i learn :P
Also try marking the ground beneath your feet somehow, it seems to help with keeping consistency with your poses when it comes to multiple reference shots.
Well it helped me atleast. :D

Haha, well that definitely was the most unusual way of presenting emotes :D I was like - oh, a link, what is it, some sort of nice stock shooting tutorial for dummies? Oh, laughing emote.... okaaaay :XD:

Yeah, that's a great idea, but it kind of sucks that camera's timer has only 10 seconds in store and poses are usually pretty complex. So apart from getting to the "X" spot on time you also need to keep in mind all the subtle body shifts and twist you need to make. Like torso turned that way, this hand at this angle with fingers posed like this, that hand there at that angle. And I kind of start to panic when this annoying countdown beeping starts and in most times just freeze in place hoping I magically guessed that pose *epic fail alert*
