      Welcome to GDF!

      I'm not sure I understand your question. What do you mean, "you need a solution on how to draw .... "

      Do you draw? Because, unless I'm missing something, if you need to draw something, you need to learn how to draw... ??

        Take reference photos and draw from them. Even the Marvel comic guys use reference photos.

          Oh, I am so dense sometimes! I get the OP's question now

        To the OP, I agree. Get a friend and take a bunch of photos of him/her making the gestures/postures you want for your project. Then, use those photos as reference for your drawings/illustrations.

          I used to be a member of a site that had several nude models on a pedestal. You would choose the model you wanted then you could move the pedestal whichever way you wanted. The models also moved in various ways. Once you found the exact pose, hit pause on the pedestal and you have your reference. I wish I could remember the site - it was out of France. Figured it was worth mentioning, though, that they are out there.

              I'm not at all an illustrator, but I found this article informative.

                Yep, taking photos are a good idea and if you're going as detailed as facial expressions, use a mirror. All my animator friends have a mirror attached to their drawing tables. It's not vanity, it's reference.
                It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

                  All great suggestions. Also, take a seat in a public space and get to sketching. Strangers usually aren't too put out if you draw them if it's in the name of art.

                    Andrew Loomis books are classics. There is one book in which he explores all sorts of expressions and gestures, if I remember correctly. If you can find them at a local library. There was a brief time that some became "public domain" and were available online for at time, but then that was disputed by the family I think.
