Upper arm and shoulder anatomy by moni158 Upper arm and shoulder anatomy by moni158
This is what I do at work all day.... :iconomgewplz:

Learn the anatomuuuus! I brought my trusty anatomy book to learn all those bones and muscles >.> Stringy arms are still giving me grief though..specially the lower portion of the arm... those muscles are so complicated? whyyyyyyyyy????!!!!

So what have I learnt? I usually have trouble with the part where the clavicle makes an indent on the skin on the shoulder. But since I know where the bone is now it will be easier to get it in the right place ;) Refer to the top left corner.


Tip of the day? get an anatomy book OTL they really are helpful.

I'm trying to get my anatomy down proper myself. I'm not as dedicated as to study books on the subject to further my skills in the area, but that's soon to change. However, this is an excellent resource! My weakness, especially, is mostly the upper body and hands. Not to mention this serves as an excellent guide and perfect reason why going from book to pencil and paper is a worthwhile prospect. :thumbsup:

fail, soy estudiante de medicina y debo agregar que está mal el dibujo de abajo al centro, la insercion osea del deltoides e el humero recibe el nombre de "v deltoidea" cuando uno hace el moviemiento de rotacion externa del miembro la "V deltoidea" no deberia verse, ademas el musculo triceps está mal dibujado. Además deberias hacer trasos mas nitidos asi se aprecian mas los relieves cutaneos :) saludos desde argentina [link] and the "V deltoidea" [link]

What anatomy book do you have? I've taken anatomy classes and all and this drawing concept is still hard for me to get poses that actually look languid and that they belong to the human body. But you're help sheets actually give me a bit of help that's easy to understand and learn from.
