The Lord Lifted Me

In all my busy-brained-mind, I forgot to load this on my blog even though I mentioned that I had on the groups that I belong too. Silly me!
So... this drawing... Vicky from Everyday Matters (a Yahoo group) posted a link to posemaniacs website and I instantly fell in love! I have looked for a site like this for a long,long time without success until now. This site has numerous poses of the human body in male and female form (not graphic besides woman's breasts) but it shows you the muscles in the body during certain poses. It is fabulous! I did this drawing from the pose "floating" female. I do not know why I love drawing people but I am truly taken with it. The human body is so complex I don't think we can ever know everything there is to know about it... only God our Creator knows everything.
I love looking at the poses and really studying the muscles and how they are formed under the skin. The site also has poses of hands which you can move around a bit to get the exact position you are looking for. I am a huge fan of drawing hands if you haven't already guessed from my work.
If you get a chance, take a look at this site and you will not be disappointed.

Happy Creating everyone!

First of all, nice drawing .. and, what a website. Amazing, you can see so many poses, and turn them around, put them on a grid .. thanks for sharing.
