You can be muscular and still have fat covering up your obliques. The amount of fat on your body and the amount of muscle has nothing to do with each other. Powerlifters are "muscular" and still have fat covering their muscles. Don't think of having bodyfat as being fat. Everybody has bodyfat on their body, it's just a question of how much. You can have 12% bodyfat and look "muscular" as you are describing it and have a 30 inch waist, but still have too much fat for obliques to show.
Anyway for your obliques to really show it takes really low bodyfat, period. You can kill yourself doing crunches and if you don't have sub 10% bodyfat your obliques will probably not show. You can have low enough bodyfat for your abs to show (i.e., a "sixpack"), but still not have fat low enough bodyfat for your obliques to show. I
n fact, doing too many crunches will make you look wider and will take away from your v-taper and if your bodyfat doesn't get low enough then your obliques still
Here's an example of a guy at 12% bodyfat, who has a sixpack and looks "muscular" but his obliques don't show because he needs to lower bodyfat:http://forum.bodybuilding.com/attach...4&d=1129991361
