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.
As long as you remember that the person you’re drawing has a skeleton and internal organs, you should be fine. Most of the problems with these kind of poses in illustration come from parts bent in ways that their joints shouldn’t allow and rib cages being all but ignored. Questions like “Does she even have a spine?” are common.
I call it a variant of Rob Liefeld Syndrome.
There’s also the primary reason people hate it which is: “Who fights/stands/walks etc like that?”
If a character is posing that’s one thing but if they’re mid fight or just talking to someone they’re probably not going to twist in this manner.
thank you shrine
A Harry Potter AU where everything’s exactly the same, except the house elves look like Lord of the Rings elves and Dobby’s, like, played by Orlando Bloom. But they’re still not allowed to have clothes

I don’t know why the fandom came to this but I like it
apparently texas has a limit on how many sex toys you can own. imagine a homeowner staring, stonefaced, at a pair of police officers as they haul armload after armload of dildos out of a closet and into their squad car, write a ticket and hand it to them without making eye contact, and drive off
