Photoshop Figure Practice

Seeing as we have the day off I thought I'd make use of it and do some quick practice in Photoshop. I normally use Paint Tool Sai or Gimp 2.8 to digitally paint but I'd thought I'd try something new. It was a little difficult to understand at first but I really like the wide range of brushes you can use. 

I used a website to generate different poses. It's really useful and there's one for animals too so I've included a link here for anyone who wants to use it! 

This is just one of the images I produced. The website features a timer you can set for how long you can view the picture for. I set mine to 5 minutes and challenged myself to create sketches in 5 minutes or less. 

The practice has helped me get a little bit more familiar with Photoshop and helped me understand anatomy better so overall it was a productive use of my time! 



  1. I quite like how you did the figures clothes. The mark making and the lines makes it seem as though the figure is relaxed and is slightly hunched. Good practice.

    1. Thanks, it was only a quick sketch but I'm glad I was able to capture the general idea of the pose!
