Sketchdump February 2017 [Dynamic poses] by DamaiMikaz Sketchdump February 2017 [Dynamic poses] by DamaiMikaz
Not so many sketches this month, as I spend most of the time writing (hit the 600 page mark. Yay!) and working on actual artwork. 

In an attempt to create more dynamic and expressive poses (which I really need T__T), I tried the "line of action" approach that's done so often in animation. 
Red is the general line of action. Blue are sketch lines. I tried to exaggerate somewhat to create more of an expression.

Poses are mostly done from imagination (with a little help of my mirror) and fairly quick, so there will most likely be mistakes in anatomy. 

More poses:

Would using poses like these as a reference be ok?

I can see definite improvement! Your poses can be a little blocky. These definitely look like you're breaking away from that!
Something that I struggle with is finding the balance between correct anatomy and fluidity- perfect anatomy can make a drawing look stiff and lifeless. When you stretch things a little somehow it looks more alive. It's like that animation technique, squash and stretch.
Anyways, you're usually pretty open to advice/critique so I hope I'm not being rude haha
