OH NO! No no no no no no no. It was just the pose with the guy standing over the other guy that Iz gots my idea. Two characters of mine, ya see. He doesn't dismember him OR slit his throat. They're best friends, even if the second one doesn't quite remember.
Hmm...tips? I guess try to learn the maximum range of motion for the joints in the body. The body will freeze or move to correct situations where the joints are at their breaking points. Then just think about how one would have to position oneself to hold one down in this way. Sorry if that doesn't help much...
If you're looking for some more pinning poses, I can draw a few out. I could throw in some joint locks or throws, if that helps, too.
Well, hell yeah that would be great, you know if you've got time... No hurry or anything.
Eventually I'm going to have to display some of Renichii's martial arts abilities in particular his skills with a staff which means a lot of research and practice... Which I'm simultaneously dreading and excited about.
