If you've ever tried to draw an anime character, you've probably realized how it is much different it is from drawing a regular person. For example, much of the proportions of anime characters differ a lot but there are also a lot of similarities to drawing realistic scenes. When it comes to the complex ways the body moves and interacts with objects, much of it works the same way whether you are drawing anime characters, cartoons, or realistic portraits. This is one of the reasons why most artists use pose references of some kind when drawing characters.
