A couple of weeks ago my knee started doin this weird crunch thing and then i managed to totally screw it doin body attack (its all swollen). So ive been ordered to take some time off from the gym to let it heal which completely sux because i miss doin combat n i wanna c my friends at the gym... well anyway, i figured out a way i can still go to the gym, be social and watch them all do combat. Since im gong back to tafe very soon, i thought i needed to get out there n do some live figure/ gestural drawings and my lovely gym instructor said i could come up and draw the body combat class in action.
I got some fantastic poses n gestural drawings with heaps of movement through them. Ive got poses from Muay Thai, Capoeira, Kung Fu and many more. Some of the poses i got include roundhouse kicks and sidekicks, jabs, hooks, uppercuts, knee strikes, leg blocks, crane and claw moves, ginga and asquiva, muay thai knee (jumping switch knee), double elbow strike Ong Bak style and some awesome stretches.
Im now using these for character poses so my gallery will probably be flooded with a fair few combaters
Some beautiful pieces of art by some wonderful artists here on DA.
