Drawing characters at an angle or in various poses can be great for expressing their personality and for better showing off their clothing. For example, having your character in profile can at times give them a strong-willed or indomitable aura. At others, they may appear forlorn and introspective. Playing around with different angles and positions gives your audience a better sense of who your character is and can even cast them in a whole new light.
