Back to Back 3 by syccas-stock Back to Back 3 by syccas-stock
ladycompassion suggested a female and male archer duo, back to back... which was pretty much the only time any of us picked up a bow and arrow until the actual tournament. Just 4 pics, slight angle variations and one with relaxed bows.
Hope these are what you were looking for :)

ABOUT MY ARCHERS:
For the experts among you: Both Lukas and Kat are experienced archers, both their bows are handmade by themselves. We are a group of intuitive archers. Our individual anchor points (point in face where the arrow is drawn to) vary from person to person, they are however consistent - most of us use cheekbone or corner of mouth. Of course you can always argue about details and posture correction, but what's important to me is that if you use this stock in your art you can be sure that this is functional archery.
There are many different styles of archery throughout the world and the Olympic style is NOT the gold standard, it's just one style.

Please note that in this photo Kat's bow is not drawn to its full potential. Else her hand would be a bit further back.

For more information on archery please check my Beginner's Guide to Archery below:

A Beginner's Guide to Archery in Stock and ArtWith movies like Avengers, Brave and Hunger Games, 2012 seems to be the Year of the Archers and many artists have already been inspired to create their own archer characters.
Whether you're thinking about having one of your OCs pick up bow and arrow (in writing or drawing) or you're a stock artist who wants to create some decent archery stock, I hope this little guide helps you understand the wonderful thing that is archery.
First and foremost, a little disclaimer: For this article I will mainly draw from my own experiences over the past few years. I am what you'd call an intuitive or instinctive archer, which roughly comes closest to medieval-styled archery. At the moment I'm shooting a modern Samick bow (without stabilizer or sights) and am in the process of making my own recurve bow out of robinia wood (similar to a few bows you can see in my gallery).
However, in archery there are many styles and differences in material used, draw, stance, finger position etc. – it all depend
