Just something I've noticed about people's comments... When a girl posts a stock photo: Your poses are versatile and wonderful, what a fantastic camera angle, would you mind if I used this image as a reference? When a guy posts a stock photo: SEXALICIOUS!!1! 11/10 WOULD BANG, NOW TAKE OFF YOUR UNDERPANTS
your picures are a perfect study to practice anatomy drawing. personally, i'm extremely grateful. it's much easier for me to draw women because I am one, but male body has always been a huuuge problem for me. you can't even imagine how helpful your photos are . from a drawer's point of view, i'd also be glad to see some pics of skinny men. that would be awesome !
Scoliosis can cause the spine to twist to the point that it alters the location of the rib cage but he seems to be pretty symmetrical everywhere else so I doubt it is scoliosis. I bet it's just genetics! Some people have "bad ab genes" making them look all twisted. Some have perfect symmetry.
Before lashing out open a window and breath! Now read my post again and notice that I say " I doubt it is scoliosis" Even though it some times can be the cause!
I don't think you really understand what symmetry means, especially in this context. Symmetry can mean two things. The first is an imprecise sense of harmonious or aesthetically pleasing proportionality and balance such that it reflects beauty or perfection (notice the word imprecise!).
The second meaning is a precise and well-defined concept of balance or "patterned self-similarity" that can be demonstrated or proved according to the rules of geometry.
When looking at a body symmetry it doesn't mean a copy of the other side of the body which you seem to think. Symmetry means it is a balance of proportion. If you look at his arms, bicep tricep, shoulders, chest, lats he's very symmetrical. Meaning he has good proportions and balance in his look. But if you take a look at his abs there's no symmetry, no balance.
So when saying that someone has perfect symmetry in their abs doesn't mean that one side of the abs is an exact copy of the other. It means that the proportion and the balance of the look makes it seem perfect.
Now don't even try to argue with me. There's no way you'll win.
relax, I didn't even want to argue. And about scoliosis, it wasn't a reply to your post. Do you really think I wanted to argue and lol "win"? I just posted my opinion, and thought about perfect symmetry- literally. Wow, sir, wow! Have a nice day you too
