Hilarious, although as an artist myself I need to point out that there's a strong difference between the female and male torso. The female torso is naturally shaped as an hour glass which among other things make it possible to swing the hip in 180 degrees without much effort. In relaxed state the female body will usually have hips that pout in some direction although not as much as the art depicted on this blog. The male torso is naturally shaped as a tube that cannot be bent as much and even when he try his hips will follow the rest of his torso. Objectified male models in a relaxed state are often shown bent slightly forward in order to enhance the musculature on his chest.

Male super heroes are also often depicted with very articulated upper torso, in which his shoulders can be seen. His arms are presented in a /V\ form, with the arms going out from the body rather than falling down like a regular male. When enhanced into an extreme V-shape they take a form not even athletes have.
