Great! Drawing dynamic poses, even ones I might not actually ever use, are still good for keeping up your drawing form and skill.

I liked it! I've been in a bit of an art slump lately, like I forgot how to draw. I'll definitely try this method out.

This is just great. since i'm an absolute beginner i was sure that i wont be able to do even one pose properly. but i tried it and it really works out for me. of course i still suck at doing all these positions and i dont see everythings thats inside the body with my inner eye. but this just gave me a big motivation boost. thanks reiq-sama ^__^

so you say you use image references but in the video were all of those from you imagination? They are really well done! I wish I could sketch stuff like that.

Buenas, Reiq! 
Una preguntilla que probablemente te habrá hecho mucha gente (o al menos supongo) es la tableta que usas. No sé si este video está hecho a tiempo real o no, pero es impresionante la velocidad del trazo y la precisión. Obviamente tendrá mucho que ver con la habilidad, pero también me gustaría saber el soporte en el que trabajas :) ¿Eres más de Cintiq o de tabletas de toda la vida? ¿Tienes más de una? ¿Cuál has usado en este video?
¡Un saludo, y muchas gracias por tus dibujos! ¡Son geniales!

 a ver yo empece usando mouse luego una tabla muy barata hasta tener ahora la CintiQ 13HD (pasaron varios años antes de poder tenerla. el video va mas rapido de lo normal pera creo que solo el doble.  

ahora tengo una 13HD una de 21UX y una intuos por si acaso alguna se daña

I have never seen anyone start off with the torso before. I think I might have to try that out and see how it works. I love the fluidity of your work. Thanks for taking the time to make this!

Very interesting video and technique; I never thought of starting from the torso, and I end up stressing a lot about head and body position because I tend to start from the shoulders and try to perfect everything at once and one part of the body at a time - thanks for reminding me that a sketch and a warm-up is but that, haha. Very useful c: Thanks~

idk like I love your style and you have great grasp on proportions but a lot of your women are just anatomically incorrect. For example theres a lot of images in your gallery where the perspective in which you pose the women shouldn't allow us to see some things but we end up seeing it anyway because you subscribe to boobs and butt posing. In skill you far surpass me so I'm no pro talking here, but I just find it interesting that you have such an amazing grasp on proportions but not necessarily anatomy.

It's mostly the fact that breasts sell, and bigger breasts sell even more. You can see from other sections of Reiq's gallery that he is very good at drawing realisticly proportioned people. Of course when you're a professional you have to do the work that sells best.
