Hello there,

I draw quite often but my ideas don't always work out quite as I envisioned them. I feel it's not worth the effort to keep drawing something that I don't believe in 100%. Today I thought sharing some drawings that I didn't get to finish for one reason or another.

A pose practice featuring Sayaka and the handsome guy (mature content:

I can remember why I didn't finish this. At the time I attempted this I lacked experience and confidence with male characters. I also felt that it was too early to toss Sayaka with the handsome guy together in nude pose practice. Chronologically this happens somewhere after pose practice 7.

A pose practice featuring Sayaka, Sachiko, Sayuri and Shoji taking bath together (mature content)

I wanted to have some fun with the babies, but the bathing scene wasn't a good idea. I wanted to keep this as innocent as possible so I tried natural censoring by covering all intimate parts with something, but I didn't come up with interesting poses. I felt this just didn't work out, although the start wasn't that bad.

A semi-comic featuring Sayaka, the handsome guy and Kohana:

This was too ambitious and poorly implemented that I decided to abandon this. For being a pose practice, this features too elaborated storytelling so I strayed off from the actual goal of pose practicing. Also, I disregarded reading order in this but I figured that being inconsistent with the reading order was a mistake. There are some neat poses and viewing angles though so it was such a shame I ruined this with bad presentation. I didn't plan out the sequence in advance, which was a fatal mistake.

"Pose freedom", an ambitious attempt to compile "all" poses:

This turned out to be too demanding and boring to work with. My goal was to demonstrate the joint articulation and limitations of the human body and put them in order from easiest to hardest. I quickly realized that it was really difficult to categorize each pose and determine its difficulty. Anyway, I roughly categorized the poses depending on how many contact points or interactions there were. In other words, the less there are limitations from the environment, the easier to pose is to draw. A character floating in midair is easier than a standing character for example. A character holding something on one hand is more difficult than one holding something with both hands etc.

These are works that I will probably never finish, but it's not completely out of question to try them again when I have the confidence. The semi-comic one is definitely something I want to try redrawing from scratch, for the story was really fun and important point for Sayaka.

That's all for now. I hope you enjoy!
