IFX - Strike A Pose

IFX - Strike A Pose (2009)

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS SPECIFICALLY A POSING TUTORIAL. The female figures used are exaggerated to help accentuate what is normally hidden/too subtle to identify and to differentiate between the different portions. The angling of the poses are of an expressionate and confident nature to once again stress the different portions when posed in various ways. This is NOT a tutorial about human anatomy.

Here's the workshop I did for ImagineFX for their 49th issue (November 2009). In terms of layout, this is my own personal version with some extra features. I shared as much as I could for the time I had, so I hope this will be helpful to you guys!
