I think I’ve figured out exactly two good angles for the Stone Cold Stunner, and most of the time I only use one of them. This one. It’s also tough to draw guys falling out of the ring. It’s such a weirdly specific physical motion that’s often really hard to find photo reference for.
On that note, the hardest photo reference to find for the HEAT card game I’ve been working on? The Avalanche splash in the corner. I had to search “Stinger Splash” to get anything useful, and that move does not hold up to photography, it turns out. It looks really good in motion, but as a still it looks really weak. You’d think there’d be more easily searchable photos of fat guys doing corner avalanches, since they do it pretty much all the time, but apparently whatever photos there are of of those online aren’t appropriately named to be searchable.
