Using an apple application 'Posable lite' which manipulates a digital mannequin to create different positions. From this, I have been able to observe the anatomy of the body and documents stereotypical movements when depressed.
I found the app very hard to use as the buttons were not clearly labelled, making the entire making process very long of changing and then reversing the movement. In the end, I had a good enough idea about the app that I was able to make some representations of signs indicating closed body language. From playing around with the app It allowed me to understand all the movement possible in the body. Little details had to be altered in order to create the desired effect and it was obvious when something was missing as it "stuck out like a sore thumb" Literally have to change the smallest things like turning of the wrist, pointed or flexed feet and change in spine placement.
