Not perfect, but I got asked to do a redraw of a picture over on the eschergirls tumblr. Original can be found over here: http://eschergirls.tumblr.com/post/10191123729/okay-audience-participation-lets-do-a-little
My quickie redraw with less broken spines and a bit more room for organs.
Thanks so much for submitting this!
As you can see, Nikki uses line of action, and builds her structures properly. She makes the sensible change of having the front girl on her stomach, so now we get sexy leg action going on this pinup! These women are more balanced, better looking, and all with simple line work.
Also note how each woman’s breasts are actually affected by gravity and arm positions. The girl on her stomach will have cleavage because her boobs are squished together between her arms, while the other two don’t.
I personally really love this redraw, because Nikki’s lines are confident and she knows how to draw pretty ladies. Her work can be found at http://www.y2hecate.com/ (even if the main site is closed, all links on the sidebar are active and good).
I’m really glad somebody redrew that picture because that one has always bugged me. It’s pretty obvious he put two swimsuit poses together (woman facing forward with her breasts to us, and woman laying on her side) and I’m glad to see somebody made her lower half make sense!
Since the clothes are making it pretty hard to guess where things are, here is a stab at it. I’m no anatomist, and a so-so artist, so like I say, it’s a guess.
Base skeleton in yellow, skull and very vague guess at rib cage and scapula in orange. I think she’s shrugging or something? So her near arm may be foreshortened? Not sure. She might be wondering what tore the back of her dress off. Kind of baffled by the pelvis. I think it’s tilting right? Maybe the high point on the left side is higher.
I think the biggest issue I have is with her neck (guesses in violet). The spine attaches at the base of the skull, and unless she’s got a long Giger alien skull under that mop, or her spine is actually curling way down and peeled itself off her rib cage, I think her neck is the most broken thing.
I do feel it must be emphasized that there is a cute ferret on that other girl’s head. (green) With a little maid hat and bow! Surely that counts for something!
Hope I’m submitting this right. >_>
I’m frightened even more than I was originally. The ferret, however, is awesome!
So I’ve been following you for a bit, and you are so awesome! Anyways, I offer up a redraw I did of this, erm, interestingly posed Emma Frost:
We’ve got Butts and Boobs, probably a broken spine, and mismatched leg-lengths (if her hips are tilted, her stockings wouldn’t line up). To work!
I started by seeing what proper anatomy she does have. Her shoulders and collarbones are pretty reasonable, though her hips, spine, and fingers worry me. Also, does anyone lay like that, really? No? Okay, I can think of something similar. I kept key parts of the pose, like her hands and clothes, but adjusted her boobs and hips to make it more reasonable. I’m not the best artist, but I find the pose much more attractive and physically possible with the redraw.
While I know I probably didn’t get the anatomy completely correct, I think the squished boob makes up for it.
I don’t think you got the anatomy exactly correct either, but you’re not a professional, and I like the pose you chose and attempted. Also, you actually get that breasts squish! :)
