Oh, cool :) . I read the name. But I didn't know who was who. I'm kinda looking for a simple, forward-facing standing/walking anatomy base to make a reference for :iconvernus-destro: . The refs look something like this:
sta.sh/01hb5k2megj2
Do you have any basic standing images of yourself that I may use?

I really like your Stock Images. They are full of tension and the poses seem quite realistic. That can't be said for all the stock photos out there!
Good Job!
Just one thing to this specific picture: I think that the block of the defender is slightly to low. If the kick is really forceful it might slip over the block and hit the defender at the side of his head. Also the position of the arms of the attacker doesn't seem to be practical. You wouldn't point your fists directly hat your own face but instead in the air above your face.

But that's just critic on a high level! I hope your not mad. Just trying to contribute to improving your fantastic action stock :)

Cheers!

Thank you. :-)

You might be right... but in this case the defender is already sliping down under the leg and awaiting his attack the offensive guy is directly preparing to use his fists. ;-) The kick has already failed when it begun...

It looks like the left one is in the better position... but the right one got the control now.

Ah, o.k. I think I get it...in other words it's a snapshot of the scene a second after the impact of the kick!
I guess you are right: Now the defender has the opportunity to break the balance of his opponent. High kicks are kind of risky. If they connect they can do great damage but if they don't...

Aye. But lets say a 1/4 second ;-)

:wave: Having studied Martial Arts (various styles and a lot of years) I completely agree with the comments made by 'FantasyAndSFFan'!
Wether it be a 1/4 of a second, a split second or the blink of an eye, these captured stances on both guys are lacking. The guy on the left would be flat on his back in real life - if he executed that kick, the way its shown here, in a Dojo (he is so wide open to a testicle punch, a leg sweep etc. etc.) and, the guy on the right would be on the floor, or staggering unballanced, because he's just been kicked off balance; due to the fact there is no defensive power behind his weak, limp and low hand/arm position. Most people however would not know any of this so, its not so greatly important here on DA.

What was important.....for me!
The first thing that caught my eye was how good the quality of your photo was (all of your work) but how could it be used when the potential user has no clear image to work with i.e.
1) Guy on right cropped half out, thus seriously limiting the outcome of manipulation/positioning for final idea.
2) The guy on left unusable as a solo subject; unless you have the skills to photoshop the the other guy out and create the missing leg area.
3) Way to many shadows; which again will limit the outcome of what you wish to do.

A great shame as you are obviously able to take superb quality photos but sadly included all the little things that (to me at least) make them unsable or greatly limited in the way they can be used! Never the less, I shall revisit your portfolio again to find something I think I may be able to create from but, for now, I say thankyou very much for your ideas, the time and the effort you take to do said work :iconhappyfellaavatar:

Hi there ^^

ähm...

1.: I am the guy on the left. I am not the photographer.
2.: this was not a photo shoot for fighting poses... we just made some pictures for fun while changing clothes.
3.: this photo was not taken in real movement... we just tried some unusual fixed poses for photos...
4.: because of that the photo is named a "test".

Besides, what I always say: This is "deviant Art". If something is usual, correct, typical, normal, standard etc... this is the wrong place for it. I upload "correct" pictures on other platforms... dA only gets deviant stuff.


Thank you for taking time to analyse my picture.

Takes some serious training for a guy to kick that high, good form too. Excellent action shot.

this photo was taken after I had to spend 3 month in bed because of an motorcycle accident... in this case physical therapy is the right word ;-)

That's a test image? Good.
Dynamics are good (and that's hard to do right), but it needs more light. Unless you're going for a silhouette look, because in that case it's perfect.

to be honest... all my pictures are still "tests"
I still can`t find my line...

but sooner or later I will... we will also try more of this.

Thank you for critique. :-)
