Seems that way to me. Plus, that model on her bike doesn't look like the picture. She's farther back on the bike. Her arms are more extended, less comfortable looking, and her legs are farther forward than the drawing. When you compare the seat tube on her bike vs. the drawing, it's clear that bike has the tube quite a bit farther back.
