A compact pose affords a wonderful opportunity to concentrate on the details and subtleties of those parts of the body that are visible. Remember, however, to draw “through” the body, properly setting the position of all the limbs, visible or not. That will help to keep the contour lines fixed and to make sense of them to the viewer.
In this pose, the upper body can readily be divided into four quadrants, the same as if the model were standing. Finding the relative sizes of the lower limbs and arms remains the challenge.
