from at least the 15th century have found the surface and form of the elements of the picture, people, plants, cats, Jesus, etc. to be worthy of depiction (showing).

So consider drawing the surface and direction of the form you are depicting in a tangible way.
This generalized depiction, from a model, shows the torso in two views from the hip. It emphasizes the combination of lines in length with lines around. So a passage is a channel, a way through and not a style. Voyage, path, progress, change; a few more definitions of passage. All are pertinent to the practice.
