Flustering anatomical study

I sometimes find it helpful to draw anatomical studies of my own characters: how they would look if they had a real skeleton. I only do these for humanoid characters that aren't overly stylized.


On a blog dedicated to drawing, it makes sense to want to show drawing ability. But I don't have a fully clear conscience about this. Even though it's my own fictional character, I have mixed feeling about this rate of exposure (x-ray-ted). Here's how she would react if she saw this:
