sols-crew asked: I just wanted to poke my head in here and say I'm totally in awe of your posing abilities, especially the things you can do with older Frei. There is no way my type 3 Delf body will do stuff like that! Is there a secret to it?
Thank you for appreciating my posts. ♥♥♥
The Delf Type 3 & 4 body is indeed of tricky engineering. When posing sdFrei I consider the following things: 1.) The waist joint is useless, but not completely. It will not allow the body to crouch or whatnot, but those small pelvic shifts are a great help in balancing standing poses; 2.) Master those pseudo-double joints. They’re not as easy to use as peanut-joints, but take advantage of them when you can. They will help you do partial bends, which can make for a better-looking pose; and 3.) The legs are HEAVY. That means no high kicks and silly walks. But they are great counterbalances to the torso when used properly.
And then there’s my general posing mantra: Find your center. Any pose can be held indefinitely as long as you catch that sweet sweet center of gravity for your doll. Always ensure the stability of the load-bearing leg (you’ll quickly learn early on which doll’s leg is the stable one), and keep anything above that equally distributed. And also, FLATTEN THE FEET! Most of the time, a pose won’t hold just because the feet is not firmly level with the floor. Whenever you feel that the pose is properly balanced, ensure that the load-bearing foot is flattened.
Woops, guess I got carried away with that one. ~_~”
Thank you again for your kind words, and hope you get more posing fun out of your Delf Type 3 body! ♥
