I'm having confusion on how to properly represent the motion of the human body. The action which I intend to draw is a man pulling a wire from the ceiling of a room. I attempted to look for sketches or examples of how this motion or figure would look like, but I don't know how would it look natural?.
My source of confusion is how would it look like if the cable is perpendicular to the ceiling as if the dummy is a piano mover or if the wire the dummy is pulling is makes an angle with the ceiling, will the motion look the same?.
Does it exist some reference or a stock of drawings displaying different poses and gestures of a person?.
I've found this sketch from below, which features a man pulling a rope but it comes from the sides not from the top, so I don't know how would it look like.
How can this be drawn in Inkscape?. The wavy pattern, well there's a method to do it, but I don't know very well how to replicate the sketchy effect seen in the joints of the dummy.
Basically this question relates on how a dummy or a person would look like when it is pulling a wire from a top and how to draw this on Inkscape by following the pattern as seen in these dummies?.
Does it exist another stock or reference for different poses and gestures in a person?.
