Exploring the pose

This past week a student of mine was struggling with posing their character in a manner that would make sense. They were drawing thumbnail doodles of a female with a sword. The problem was that in almost every instance the pose was not working as it didn't make sense. It wasn't in a position that one would realistically see. I suggested that they strike the pose themselves to see it it was anatomically feasible and they quickly found out that it wasn't. 

Then I remembered that I helped a student with the very same challenge back in 2006. So I dug up the files and am posting them here for my student's reference as well as for the benefit of others who may be encountering similar issues with their work.
