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. 

I had started questioning it myself. I can understand the really obvious broken spines, but I’m a slim and pretty flexible girl and I can turn my body so that boobs and butt does show at a natural amount. I decided to do what you did, but I haven’t had a chance to make a post. (glad you did!) :)  Maybe people are failing to understand flexibility? Personally, these practice sketches look really good. Thanks for posting! 

P.S. To those who want to argue: I do not want to hear about how it’s bad and not relevant to certain characters…IF IT WASN’T OBVIOUS…. OBVIOUSLY you have to be choosy about what you draw. A good artist knows what poses are appropriate where and when AND good artists are also the ones who aren’t a stickler for rules. 


Whoever started the whole “escher girl” thing and made out like every pose that involves the showing of buttocks and breasts is a ‘tard. Thank you for doing this.
