I'm trying to work on a new comic. When I design the characters, I usually do them in these really boring standing poses so I can just focus on the design and outfit. It's sort of like a thumbnail or a starting point for me. If I was doing something for a client, I probably wouldn't show them these, but it's how I usually start. I need at least something to look at so I can further develop the character. The final character may look or act nothing like this, but it's sort of like my springboard.
