Read from the Book

Ever wonder what makes a professional artist's action poses look so cool? Well, you're about to find out. You're going to see that certain principles are used over and over again to make poses more dramatic. They are: (1) having the figures lean into the pose, (2) using speed lines and forced perspective, (3) creating emphatic facial expressions, (4) indicating secondary actions, and (5) adding background motion.
