I'm glad the pose works! I felt like it needed more movement for some reason XD I really need to start collecting more pose ideas lol I used to be so good at having all kinds of different poses when I was young, but I don't know what happened ;n;

I think you have the basic stuff for this pose down just right :) Overdoing it may start looking unnatural. There's different ways to make a pose more interesting, if you need any help just ask :la:

Yeah when I was younger I could work sooo long on a single piece, nowadays I wonder where that patience has gone XD

Thank you :la: And thanks for the offer! I know who to go to if I ever struggle with finding a good pose XD In fact! If you could give me some advice on creating more authentic. dynamic yet natural poses, I would appreciate it. ;D

Goooossh same XD Although lately, I've been trying to get back into the habit of doing so. I'm sometimes tempted to post things right away... but now-a-days, I'm trying to refine things a little more like old times XD

I suggest you take a look at fashion poses :D If you find a fashion illustration book, there's usually tonnes of great poses in there.. I remember having a pdf laying around of a book full of fashion poses and it being very inspirational ^^ I think as far as poses go, it's a lot of combining techniques (like anatomy, perspective, gesture...) so it's hard to give a one-way instruction manual XD I guess practicing gesture drawing and looking at a lot of (fashion) poses would be helpful :D

Yeahh that's usually what I do: when I feel like "ah this art is ready to post" I usually let it rest for one day and then the next day I still find some tiny things I want to adjust XD

Fashion poses? Ooo sounds interesting.  I didn't think of that XD I'll have to look into that XD Ooo what PDF? Do you still have it available / know where to find it? I would really appreciate it!!

Aaaa yes... perspective is a lot harder for me to handle, and my anatomy has been considerably lacking from my lack of references XD But these fashion poses sound promising!

lol I'm the same way XD Sometimes I'll want to adjust a lot more than I think I do! Other times, I'm lucky and then don't adjust much at all XD

Aaaa thank you <333 I really appreciate it  <33 Yvette is a very flawed character, cute, fluffy, and adorable on the inside, and cold on the out.

(Don't we all struggle with hands? I would probably do better if I ever did studies XD )

She is so interesting. :) 

(Oh yeah... studies... I should do that as well but there is no time hahah Probably because it is so difficult LOL) 

I am still thinking about which of your characters I want to make fanart of btw. The choice is so hard ^^;

Thank you :)

(SAME lol XD I wish I had more time for studies!)

Would it be easier if I picked for you? XD I can imagine why it's so hard - there's so many characters  to choose from!

I actually haven't had a lot of art of Yvette as of yet. If you want, I get give you more info on her XD

There's other characters of mine as well, like Estelle - who a lot of people seem to like. c:

Okeeee here is an information dump (hopefully this all sounds okay and not too spoilerish - hardly any of this shows up in the story itself, but could in the future)

About Yvette's background:

Yvette is the original queen of Netheron, but is considered a runaway. She ran away with a merchant long ago, in pursuit of love.  She is a character driven with constant self-image issues and deals with PTSD after her run-away scheme, but also a separate mental health problem,  that is triggered by her self-confidence problems, and unstable treatment in childhood by her parents and her cousins. She is considered the person to "not be an example of" but in reality, she's the kindest, sweetest person, underneath a rocky hard shell - and she wants to do good, but ultimately is impulsive, and gets herself into situations  she cannot handle. She's extremely sensitive, and this boils up as anger and rage for not getting  what she needs - but she's also a strong believer in justice and doing the right thing, even if that sense for justice is muddied by odd thinking, and fear of her will being discovered.

Yvette has the capability to be a decent, mild-mannered princess - and at a time, she was - legit just that, but she was also a princess who struggled with a speech impediment at a time where her confidence level was constantly under the water as a result of constant verbal harassment from her mother. In time, she grew to be confident because of the merchant she met - but it influenced her impulsive behavior, and because medication doesn't exist in the victorian era, she could easily make poor choices. As she was in a deep love - and mind you, so was the merchant - the decision to run away came at a poorly justified time. As somebody who makes hasty, precise decisions - running away, turned out to be the best, and the worst thing for her. Because now, she was caught up in a situation where it could ultimately end in a terrible way.

Because what has so easily saved her, also broke her in the end. 

Misc Facts about Yvette:

- She's a Lesbian in love with a nonbinary person
- She's about 17 at the start of the prequel
- She has a strange dressing pattern, constantly wears a hat and odd, mismatching colors
- She's not so mentally impaired, that she couldn't function without medication, but she does need therapy, and LOTS of it.
- She's very self aware, almost inclusively so
- Not a witch in any sense - this caused even more stress on her life than not
- She was named after Yvette Mari Violetti - the first queen of Netheron
- Apart of the original crown - contrary to Estelle, she actually likes and wants to be the queen, but knows she's unsuitable to it.
- She was exiled from the throne, in order to grant her therapy and help. Estelle took her place. 

I don't expect you to take ALL of this, and do something with it - in fact, you could easily refer to the bottom section as you draw her. I hope you're not overwhelmed by all of this... lol She's just a really complicated character - as all of my characters generally are. XD But she's one of my most complicated, and hard to figure out. She was a character I nearly got rid of... like Estelle. But they both fought until I got to know them more... lol She's a very heavy character as well, so hopefully you don't mind such a dramatic character!

Anyway, I'll stop before I write anymore XD I imagine this is overwhelming... sorry ><
