15 Improve your posture
We create so many figures and forms at a high velocity that if we’re not careful, shorthand for poses and composition becomes limited. The solution is to go back to the beginning. Resume drawing figures if you’ve let that go (or animals, perspective, architecture). Given a chance to design a character, try creating a pose that speaks for the character. Tough guys don’t stand like slackers, or professors like zombies. Make the pose match the man, or monster!
