Kate, if he said that he'd be wrong - except in a clear contrapposto pose where this is a useful rule. Also, when we can't see the suprasternal notch, it is best to consider C7 ( cervical vertebra 7) as a useful test of the pit-of-neck and the weighted leg.

The weighted leg - and the medial malleollus on that leg - will find it's way back under the body and here - I'm not sure where Sandra is depicting the weight so I cannot say much more. She does feel a slight bit like she is not in full balance so some adjustment could be required.

Sandra - Are they cheap pencils ? I have no idea - just because something is made in China - these days - it means nothing!
