Various poses/etc come up, how would I learn to draw these? I can somewhat visualize a pose, but that goes for thousands of different poses/angles but I can never draw them accurately. How does one go about learning to draw all these various poses? Is it practicing that one pose over and over till it's ingrained? Or is there a way to generalize ?
Not OP but what the hell are we supposed to discuss? If questions go in the question thread and beginner stuff goes in the beginner thread thats like 70% of the board. it just seems like every other comment is telling people where their questions and stuff should go.
I have that same problem as OP. While I can apply anatomy to a gesture, my gestures from imagination are meh at best.
From what I've been trying so far is essentially keep practicing from reference at experiment with creating stuff from imagination further on down the line. Also, if available, life drawing classes or sessions are invaluable.
When you draw gestures, study how limbs fall, where the nuances of hand shape and weight fall... Study natural people..
Once you draw enough, once you get a stronger idea of how people stand, you'll be able to fashion poses on your own that look natural because you'll know inside and out how people move naturally.
tldr: DRAW MORE.
questions that require multiple peoples opinions and actually create a discussion as opposed to a question where there is a right answer already written in the sticky.
TLDR: Opinion questions:

I've been doing such practice about Anatomy and poses. And still can't get a hang of it. After I shift to another thing to practice. I tend to forget those standards on making poses. It tend s to decrease my competence to draw.
Try finishing things. And not focusing for days on just feet or hands. Draw different poses, and in between do a hand or two and more whole poses so you keep using what you practiced while aquiring new knowledge.
