idk if you know this but a year ago you posted something for drawing anatomy but in a part you said it wasnt possible to do something with your spine because you would break it but i beg to differ because i can do that thing.
Hello, dear anon! Let me tell you a thing. I highly doubt you can do the thing shown on the tutorial. There are simple reasons why.
I googled flexible spines and I will show how they are different from the bizarre example I showed you.
As you might notice, these are super flexible spines. It’s not common to be this flexible, but it is possible since the spine is a mysterious little thing.
However, look at the lines in the drawings. Notice how the spine, no matter how flexible, are actually super smooth? They don’t “snap” or create a sharp line anywhere. It’s only the flesh that might give off this illusion. Notice how nicely the hips and shoulders are connected to the spine as well, and look how the arms and legs are seeking support in one way or another. This is because naturally, the spine should not bend this way, and to prevent harm we support it so that it will not be damaged. It only makes sense, right?
Now, let’s look at the extreme twisters. You know, those people who are so flexible we start to wonder how the hell they are still alive. Well…
I don’t really need to explain much, do I? Although these two are extremely bendable, we can still see how the spine is smooth and how the hips and shoulders are still connected. They also both have support for their poses. Now, for the spine in my tutorial…
If I were to photoshop one normal looking spine into my example…
… I’m gonna cry.
So yeah. I hope this was helpful. uvu
Actually this is possible. After studying alot (and I mean alot alot, over a few years) of information on contortion from a circus and performance point of view it is possible to do 90 degree (and more) bends in the space of 2 to 3 verterbrae. Now these are exceptions’ im by no means saying everyone can do it. But yes it is possible
