Fleshing the Doll and Striking a Pose

See how pulling her arm back made that crease coming up from her arm pit? That's a natural crease caused by the warm clay pushing on itself. The crease under her left butt cheek was made by pulling her leg back, the clay presses against clay and the mounds for muscles just make themselves. This is such an under utilized aspect of the elastic quality of polymer clay. If we bent that left knee back more there'll be a crease where the top of her calf muscle presses against the lower part of the thigh. It'll happen automatically.
