Thanks Scott-Livingston and Frank0314.

I changed my work flow for this one and it turned out to be a lot easier than my previous attempt.

After loading the figure and reference pic, I set up the camera then locked the rotation.

Posed the figure moving the camera on the X, Y and Z axis to see the reference. When I was happy with the pose I loaded the props and moved them around to fit the character using the perspective views, meaning that Vicky and the camera never moved.

In my first attempt I moved the character to fit the prop and couldn't get the camera back to just the right place.

Hope this helps someone

Still finishing up my first entry, but I thought I'd show my progress so far on my second entry. Still quite a bit of work to do on the poses, especially that of the "God" figure. Um, I don't need to censor my reference picture, do I?

You do good work, only a few things about this one.smile
This Adam figure lie actual a little bit lazy and his arm relies on his knee.
The second figure is reaching his finger to the first figures hand/finger.
You need also twist first figure’s hand.
Don’t forget the fingers from the second person.

No we will allow your refrence image as is, but you will obviously have to "clothe" adam in your finished render, as well as the "god" figure.

Scott, those are really good. I love them so much I'm having a hard time even looking for issues.

Adams hips are more planar to the camera, and his upper body isn't bent back in the reference image. The upper character's upper torso is actually turned slightly towards Adam, his left arm goes back more, and his right hand is pointing ofc.

Those are all minor adjustments though, the overall image looks great smile

Just because I may have a strong opinion doesn’t make it any more (or less) correct than any other, just that I feel passionately a particular way at that moment.

I know it is late in the day but thought I would have a go as I have only ever used pose presets before.

Any comments welcome.

Very nice, only thing I see atm is the hands make a heart shaped form over her head and her shoulders aren't quite as low in the reference image. Oh, and might want bend her left foot slightly so that more of the flat of her foot is showing. Otherwise it looks great. Camera angle, bend at the hips (well might have to adjust slightly after bringing the shoulders up,) arm and leg position all look good to me smile

Looks very good only a few things, the things what Gedd said and I saw your upper body/chest is to far too the ground.
You need to bend you're upper body/chest more straight / horizontal.
