Once properly equipped
with biologically correct anatomy, proportion, and mass, the body is ready to
move. If artists intend to communicate a narrative, then they need to
consider how the figures are posed, their body language, and muscular display
as is appropriate to their situations. Are the correct muscles expanded and
contracted? Is the body language appropriate to the narrative being portrayed?
Obviously, as viewers, we demand that artists accurately depict these aspects
of bodily display or else their narratives will be consequently weakened.
