  1. For something that claims to ’empower the depiction of women’, all of these reference poses are of *scarily* thin women. Even when drawn with muscle tone, their figures are perfectly hourglass and no muscle is added to their shoulders, neck, arms, legs…
    All of their poses are alluring or femme fatale. No dynamic physical combat, or realistic day-to-day poses. Every pose is on an angle, where are the eye-level and forward facing bolder references? Its all just *ooohhh, look at the hot skinny model* poses.
    Its cool if you want to collect/draw references for traditional femme fatales, but don’t claim that it’s empowering for all ‘modern 2023 women’. All of these sketches lack any variation, and have the proportions of a barbie doll from the 1960s.

    • I mean outside of what you said they are also all anatomically incorrect. These images are terrible to use as references because of said errors.

  2. ….So you talk about using art pose references and why they’re important, yet the majority of the ‘art’ on this article is inadequate. I’ve been an art instructor who uses bodies to teach real referencing techniques for over a decade and this ‘article’ is nothing short of appalling.
