Ac­tion frame

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth Superhero Art -

To pose a character in ac­tion you need to un­der­stand the en­tire se­quence. Play it out in your head in four stages: set-up, tran­si­tion, im­pact/cli­max, follow through. Try to find the frame of the se­quence that best con­veys your idea; the mo­ment of im­pact isn’t al­ways best. For ex­am­ple, a Sa­mu­rai keep­ing his sword after a pow­er­ful slash (follow through) while his op­po­nent splat­ters blood may be more com­pelling than show­ing the blade mak­ing fa­tal con­tact .
