The pose of a model is very important. It can improve the model a lot! But it can also mess it up as well. That's why it is very important to use references from the internet and take photos when you're seeking a specific pose. I always ask a friend or a family member to do the pose that I have in mind. References make up 99% of having a clear idea of what you have to model (Fig.06).
After posing the model I finished the anatomy and started to do some sketches of the swimsuit. Even though I had a clear picture of it in my mind, it was nice to do some more studies to define it (Fig.07 - 08).
I prefer to make clothing after I have modeled the body even if the model is in "T pose", so that I can model the clothes properly (Fig.09 - 10).
After finishing the model it was time to do the UV mapping. I used the ZBrush plugin UVMaster and textured the model using Zapplink and photos as textures (Fig.11).
