I think adding thumbnails of different perspectives is a great idea, Crash. I'm going to start doing that, and I've drawn some for Stance 1. Here is the edited version:

As you can see, her guns are pointing slightly down because this is a "ready stance" and not an attack stance where she is aiming.
Strike, I didn't do much 1point perspective or exaggerate it much because I have "drawn the figure from far away". Objects mostly seem bigger in 1point because they are closer to the observer, and in these drawings, the observer is relatively far away from the figure. Especially since we can see her whole body. You actually should be able to test this out yourself. Try pointing something at yourself but moving really far from it. The width difference isn't really significant. I also think exaggerating 1point too much without need can make things look cartoony. Anyway, I'll practice that some, too.
Ah, I like your sketches, but they are a little too heavy handed I think. May be next time try to sketch with ball point pen, or 0.5mm, 0.7mm mechanical pencil would loosen the lines a bit.
Try out different kinds of pens and pencils, and have some fun with them.
Hi, Temjin. I've been meaning to comment on your works, but as you can see I don't find the time to post very often. For Stance 1 I was actually using a .5mm mechanical pencil, but it was a new pencil and the lead in it was very soft, so I had a hard time composing my lines like I normally would. I also have a tendency to tweak my proportions by widening the lines (because a heavy line looks more ambiguous than a clean line). Usually I clean it up so it looks proper, but like I said, Stance 1 was a quick and dirty sketch.
An actual combat stance with a low center to balance to help cope with recoil. I should have lowered her posture a little more. And look, my first time drawing a shadow. Looks pretty crappy, right? Did a little better with hair than I normally do....

Wanted to challenge myself, so there's probably a large multitude of things terribly wrong with this picture. I happen to like the this drawing though. Maybe I should color this one? There's no way I'm going to do thumbnails for this pose. Too difficult. Anyway, I just wanted to show Strayed can practice more acrobatic forms of Gun Kata along with more traditional types.
I am a terrible artist. I have such a hard time just drawing simple things, you know? And I don't have much time to practice anyway. Ugh, I need to quit drawing for a while so I can study.
Things of Interest!!
You have no idea how much this made me smile inside.
