So. Seeing the cover for Catwoman Issue 0 over at DC Women Kicking Ass prompted this quick study into impossible anatomy. I know other people have done things like this before regarding impossible!comic poses, but I had to test this one out myself and thought I’d share my findings.
In the picture above are three figures. Figure 1 is the issue cover. Figure 2 is the closest I could get to duplicating it in Daz3D without breaking the model’s back. Figure 3 is the same exact pose as Figure 2, just from the side. You’ll notice some of the differences: The pose, specifically the relationship of butt to bosom. The right arm placement, which is impossible without dislocating her shoulder. Her head placement can’t be duplicated. If you look at Figure 3, you’l notice that the curve of her back is already incredibly pronounced, even in this truncated pose.
My confusion really comes from the choice of pose. I think Figure 2 is just as viable as Figure 1, and is more realistic.
Note: Thanks to TylerMcDowell for his Catwoman goggles model!
