A croquis is an outline sketch of a figure, it can be in various poses. It is a design template for sketching costume ideas of your characters. This way you do not have to worry about drawing the figure, you can just add the costume or garment elements to the croquis. Croqui figures can vary depending on the designer’s aesthetics.
I’ve created this Free Comic Book Resource of a Female Croquis Pose Sheet to help in your character designing. This is a front and back view of a female figure model template. The outline of the figure is in a blue dotted line. This way the outline does not take away from the elements and costume you will add. The term and use of croquis are from the fashion design world. But I believe it can be used as a great character design tool for comic creators too. This is the first pose of many I will be creating. Next week I’ll post a male croquis.
Here is a free high resolution pdf file. Go ahead and download it and have fun coming up with some amazing characters designs. I’ll be posting more Free Comic Book Resources every Friday.
