# Poses with props

Posing

Victoria 2 at the pole

To reach this leg position the hip has to be rotated more as it first looks in the template-image.

Let's take another image for posing Vicky 2. One thing is eye-catching: It is the scaffold that Andrea is clinging to. Well - I will replace that scaffold with a pole.

Of course, this pole is the central element in that pose. As always, the pose will be started from the hip. Problems occur with the arms - I have to twist them a lot. A problem like the high positioning of the hip (remember the swordpose) won't show up. I can simply place the legs on the ground with an easy ytrans movement of the hip. A problem could be the spine - Vicky 3 would be better for such a pose.

To reach this leg position the hip has to be rotated more as it first looks in the template-image.

Once again the image without any comments (otherwise you couldn't see what the pose will finally look like :o))

I start again from an "All-Zero-Pose". As "pole" I use a cylinder stretched with the following values: x,z: 20% y: 1500%

Then I move Vicky with the hip-z-trans a little bit backwards.

I rotate the hip a little bit and move the whole figure through hip-x-trans to the right side.

Now at first the legs are important. These are behind the pole. So that it doesn't look too unnatural, I have to rotate the hip once again (much respect for Andrea -she seems very flexible :o))

With the help of the rotate-tool (be careful), I move the right thigh away from the pole (in a backwards direction) - I recognize I'm way over the limits. So I rotate the hip a little bit more and I also rotate the right buttock with side-side (only use the dials on the buttocks). Finally I'm over the limits with both values but by all means in the tolerances. In the same step I bend the right shin a little bit to get a grip on the pose.

When posing the left leg, I also correct the right leg and rotate the hip a little bit again - during that process, I often change the camera views from 'front' to 'left'. I "rotate" favored with the dials.

As the topic is "legs" I can put Vicky 2 here quickly on the ground. Problems with the hands won't occur later on - if the pole is grasped a little bit more at the top or at the bottom - this won't make a difference. I should also take care of the figure balance (see red line).

Now I fire ctrl+d to get Vicky 2 standing on the ground.
