Finally finished! :DDD!!! And I’m quite happy with the result #incredible
I really love to use orange, and this kind of yellow glowy rim light, but I also want to try different moods with the next one :3
I saved steps too, will post them later maybe :D
Okay, I’ve become rather irked by how much the boobs-n-butt pose is so harped on, as if it’s some hilarious, impossible thing. These were done on a whim, so I apologize for the small/crappy photos and sketchy outlines. Once I find my camera again, I’d like to take some shots that show the whole body and how this pose actually works.
These are all practical positions, and they were all relatively comfortable to do and stay in for a good period of time. Even though the boobs-n-butt pose looks a little funny, it’s entirely plausible and anatomically correct (although it can be taken too far). So, don’t be afraid to draw it. Hopefully these photos help a little with drawing such positions!
EDIT: (again) Oh my, these notes. Well, I’m glad at least some people find these useful. Figured I’d add some drawings that show BOTH male and females in such positions.
Reblog forever.To me, it’s not that these poses don’t work or are anatomically incorrect when drawn as above. It’s that they are the only pose that some artists draw. It’s that they highlight the only thing worthy about the women displayed are their curves. It’s that it is done in inappropriate ways. Who is going to swing a sword and do a boob and butt pose? Who is going to do a boob and butt pose when trying to kick ass? Who does that? It’s not the that pose CANNOT be done.It’s that it is shown to be the only worthy thing about the women displayed.
yeah i’m actually kind of peeved about OP completely missing the entire point about people’s outrage over the poses.
it’s not about them being physically impossible (except when it is, because a lot of people overexaggerate them) - it’s about the impracticality of the poses being used on fucking comics where that is the only pose used: only ever poses for women that display their ass and breasts, as if that’s the only thing that matters about women
the men don’t get this fucking treatment
and this post? it certainly does not fucking help; it’ll cement to people that just because something CAN be done means it’s always OKAY for it to be done. it’s not.
getting mad at people ragging on the poses is really really backwards; people have a right and a reason to be mad. when women are all treated in one specific way that sexualizes them on comic covers etc and you kind of cover up for them by going “well this stuff is totally possible!” you’re taking it a step backwards. please don’t do that. you need to acknowledge that while these poses are possible, they’re entirely impractical for the situations they’re put in and should not at all be the only fucking pose we ever see
furthermore no one really makes that pose normally during day to day life. you should maybe think long and hard about why people didn’t even think it was possible: BECAUSE NO ONE DOES THAT WITHOUT TRYING TO MAKE THAT POSE

Happy birthday to Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907–1954). Kahlo’s jewel-like self-portraits show her penchant for self-exploration and her affinity for reinventing herself. How do you choose to express your identity?
