misterate asked: How do you approach drawing twists in the human figure? I can wrap my head around twisting cubes and things like that, but when I try it on a torso it never looks right to me!

You are in luck! The amazing Sycra has a video on exactly this subject here.

I do believe that this video by him also talks about it some more, in the context of different poses.

A workable fuck-ton of male archery references (per request).

[Please note that the top two images of the white statues are for weaker bows; typically, the bow will have a stronger pull weight. The front arm would be fully extended and straight, and the hand gripping the arrow would not be pinching the arrow itself.]
