Rate my fighting stance

I made a fighting stance pose for my new game, any constructive feedback be it good or negative would be appreciated

Edit: Thank you all for the critiques of my work, even I had to take another look at my screenshot after I improved my stance, and if there’s any need to improve something please tell me.


It is alright for a combat game, you get the idea that your going to fight but I’d have to see it in action to say how good / bad it is. Obviously the legs would need to move relative to his current stance when walking.

I mean if we’re going off realism - its not good, you wouldn’t fight in that stance (I do martial arts) you’re leaving yourself open, your left arm should be up if your in this stance and by the look of the characters posture hes putting all his weight forwards when it should be balanced. The head should also be square looking directly towards your opponent, not towards the chest.

I have a question, why is the head at apox. 90 degrees. I’m no fighting expert but i don’t think someone would ever use that pose. I highly recommend changing that.

Thank you for your feedback, I was mostly trying to replicate a sort of street fighter pose to go off of. Normally in 2D fighting arenas the character has a tilted down head which I’m trying to add using the Humanoids limited joints and animation capabilities

Because it wouldnt be used in a 3d fighter arena mostly 2d. Most heads have a slight tilt in real 2D fighting games

if it’s inspired from a street-fighting game then you should turn the whole body at aprox 45 - 75 degrees. Take this examples: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/B88IeJuN5KU/maxresdefault.jpg,

Thanks for the suggestions.

The point that i’m making is that the body isn’t 90 degrees tilted from head, but somewhere at 45 degrees. That’s it.

Well if your going for a 2d game not bad, but if its 3d then you might wanna fix that stance, no wrestler stands like that, instant face punch = knockout, speaking logically you would get face punched instantly, here’s two examples (lol google images)

overall very good for a first try (I think, I only see one dummy in a stance)
That’s all
