Drawing Weapons Poses

Drawing characters with weapons is hard. Making them look fresh and exciting is even harder! Our newest book takes all the hard work out of it. Over 1500 images of dynamic characters for you to study!

This book is made for professional artists working in comic books, animation and game design. You'll learn the basic language of how to design incredible poses that show-case 1-handed and 2-handed weapons. Until now, there has never been an anatomy book dedicated entirely to WEAPONS POSES. You'll learn how to quickly arrange limbs to achieve the most dynamic poses possible.

Our books feature work by artists from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, DC Comics and more. Perfect for any level of artist looking to quickly improve their visual tool-kit.

Swap Out Any Weapon!

The most difficult part of drawing "weapons poses" is not the weapon! It's drawing the person HOLDING that weapon. You can swap out any weapon on a pose and replace it with your own!
