There’s also quite a difference in how the sartorius practically disappears as the leg is pushed further over. The second problem is, the lower leg is not in the same position as it will be in the drawing (and I could have put it there!!!), so, again, the groove of the fasciae latae and the bulging of the quadriceps will have to be somewhat invented.
