Originally launched on Kickstarter, the Pose Drawing Sparkbook includes:
• Over 32 pages of articles on topics such as acting, facial expressions, posing, and adding clarity and personality to your drawings.
• 100 drawing prompts for you to sketch, carefully crafted for their acting potential. Each one includes:
-An emotion to express
-An action involving the entire body
-An entertaining situation (humorous or dramatic)
-Can be a springboard for a full scene or mini-story.
Think of them as acting exercises that you draw! Examples: “Someone you don’t like tries to give you a hug”, “Reunited with a lost pet”, and “Scrooge wakes up on Christmas morning a changed man”.
• Hundreds of bonus sketchbook ideas to challenge your acting and drawing skills. Lists include: 150 Props, 150 Phrases, 150 Emotions, and 150 Daily Situations. For this PDF each list has been expanded to include 200 bonus drawing ideas not included in the physical book.
• Access to the Sparkbook Gallery on Facebook where you can share your work and see what others are doing with the drawing prompts from the book.
It’s not really a “how to draw” book. It’s more of a “how to think” book. It’s designed to help you think about acting and posing as you draw your characters.
