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.
Interesting. I’d never seen anyone claim that the boobs and butt double-cleavage position is impossible—I can do it, after all—I assume most mildly flexible people can. But these photographs really make it look *useless*. It just seems to be a configuration of body parts. It’s not conveying mood, motion, any sense of anything. It doesn’t look like a mid or end point of any motion or visual narrative, it doesn’t have strength (since these are usually superhero(in)es, it’d come up, right?), and it’s not particularly sexy. It’s just…a way your arms and legs can go, with a mild air of discomfort. So, if I were drawing it for anything other than practice of the most theoretical sort, I’d have to work extra hard to justify it.
