This are some sketches I drew before posing or doing anything with my character in 3D.
I look at some reference and then took some poses and work it out in my own animation and how it would flow with the story and actions happening before and after. From here I did the previs which I have already uploaded and then the first block which has also been uploaded.
I did not put arms in all of the drawings because I was more concerned about the weight and mechanics of the torso and legs.
I always make little notes for myself as I rework come of the posing and some times add little drawing in between to help me understand the transition between poses.
