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. 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!
Yes! thank you for doing this and proving that these poses are actually possible and they don’t break your spine like a lot of people say.
I mean, go ahead and draw them if you want to contribute to the continued objectification of women as nothing better than sexual property. Continue to draw them if you want to toss logic out the window, because these poses are a) fucking ridiculous and b) have no basis in the reality of ass-kicking women. You know what the problem is? All of these poses prioritize displaying the body as a sexualized object, not as poses that allow for like, punching or kicking people — you know, things that superheroines do, and often.
OP missed the point so hard they might as well skyrocket into the sun.
cool story op now try this one
this one too
Also none of these poses are fucking necessary.
Why are women posed like this.
You cannot fight in any of these poses and flying or standing like this is ridiculous.
When you’re with your friends, do you pose like this?
Why do female heroes have to have some ridiculous, fucked up pose, for just standing around? You’re not maxiandapril honey, you don’t do this in your every day life.
That the poses are possible to do is besides the point. The point is, women in comics get fucked up anatomy (on a level men don’t even reach), stupid looking poses, and racy costumes, all because the people MAKING them disregard the fact that not everyone reading the comics wants that. If you’re going into battle, are you going to be wearing a bikini while doing the tits and ass pose? If you’re real, probably not. If you’re a comic book woman? Almost certainly.
Can people actually do those poses? Yes. I can twist my body all sorts of ways. But that doesn’t mean that you can actually DO anything in them. It’s all for show.
You’ve missed the entire point of WHY people hate those poses.
also i’ve only taken tae kwon do and only for like 3 years and im dabbled in capoeira and i have a friend who’s really into MMA so i’m not at all an expert BUT.
but NONE of these positions would be an advantage in hand-to-hand combat (where you need to be oh i don’t know, grounded, in a position where you can see your opponent fully and are ready to switch levels or directions on a dime). homegirl would be done before she even got her leg all the way up. smh.
