working with the background

i am still working with the process of preparing a random background one week, and then seeing how to work a live model into it the following week. this is the latest example. i had no idea what pose the model was going to hold, but when he sat down as he did, i immediately saw how the curve of his back fit into an existing curvy swirl in the background. the shape his legs made matched other swirls.
