I already showed this picture with female sitting poses from my favorite sprite reference (ragnarok online) a while ago on irc, but i just found it again on my hard drive:

I prefer these.

Though the second one brings my mind to something dirty. Might wanna change the right hand position slightly.

I like sit3 and sit5 the most, they are modest and look quite realistic. If spriteset is so small such stuff like leg moved forward etc. looks like the character were some weird way gnarled.

I know this is a rather common sitting position in anime, but have you ever tried to sit like that? At least my knees are under considerable stress, if I can even make it. I think it has somehow grown common in cartoons cause of cuteness factor.

I like sit1 and sit3, though the legs of sit3 should be replaced with the better looking legs of sit2 (perspective seems better in particular).

I have no problem sitting in that position. It isn't stressful for me at all, but that's just me being abnormal.

However, sit5 would be stressful if it is done for 30 minutes or more. I would prefer sit4 to sit5 in real life.

I like sits One and Four, as they both look quite comfortable and relaxed.

Sitting positions in order of comfort factor are one, three and two for me as a male. Since I have a old knee injury I cant sit on my knees and I never did that before I hurt my knee anyway.

I dont have much to say about women sitting positions other than it should look feminine. Whatever that may be. :P

Looking at their waists I think these sprites should only be used for ill poor begging homeless characters. ;)

Artwise I think there are some anatomic, lighting and perspective issues that need slight fixin'. But positionwise they're ok. After the issues would be fixed I'd prefer 1 (and 3 a bit) for females. And the frame we have now, or a slightly edited version, for males.

Because noone seems to care about this quite roadblocking problem since a half year I made the other 4 directions of the pose I like best. When noone creates 4 complete frames he/she considers better in a week I will commit it and change all existing equipment graphics.
