Rules - I created a female body last week but rushed through it so wanted to better it - now this is a big project so: This sounds silly but I really want to concentrate on the body only - no head as yet as I really wont have the time, but maybe we can add as we go? The female needs to be curvy. She can have either bare feet , boots or shoes. She may have a dress (no cloth used) and may have a top but the body must been seen. The final overall body should be quite sensual / sexy.
