ashenmaus: I found this in the
I found this in the Kickstarter-funded book Masters of Anatomy Book One: The Ideal Male & Female Body. It’s a collection of standard poses as drawn by a variety of professional artists in their different styles with some very big names attached.
This one is by Francis Vallejo - exceptional artist… but I have no idea what made him think a woman’s spine could do that. I would’ve called it a stylistic decision if the guy next to her didn’t have absolutely perfect posture.

Besides this explains a lot of how many women in comic books are depicted, it’s also what I said on a previous post, that they want big butts but not fat, so the dip in the back helps to accentuate the butt without having the character or the butt be fat.
