Hey, how does one draw arms? Also, how do I connect the shoulders to the body? This is quite confusing for me, Thanks!

Omg I’m not really good at explaining my process but I’ll try as best as I can. OTL

I highly recommend you look at real life references and possibly learn a bit of human anatomy to better understand how arms look/work.

I usually start off with a stick-figure body.


Then I fill in the torso area.


I draw the arms, keeping the muscle anatomy in mind.



Aaaannd that’s basically all I do for arms.

There isn’t much of a difference between male or female bodies. I usually like to draw male arms a little more bulky and angular while my female arms tend to be smoother and rounded, but that all depends on artist’s preference.


Regarding the shoulders. I like to think of the shoulder/arm structure as some sort of saddle that sits right at the top of the torso? Idk. I know the clavicle connects to the sternum and the scapula hovers over the backside of the ribs…image

I feel like if I made videos, I could explain better, but that requires a lot more time that I don’t have.

I’m sorry! I tried. OTL

I’ll link some tutorials that’ll explain this a lot better than I can (T^T)

Rather than dissolving the anti-fraternization laws when he becomes Fuhrer, Roy simply files the paperwork to make it so the office of Fuhrer is no longer a military one. That way he can marry Riza without the risk of harming female soldiers who might be at risk of manipulation without those laws in place, as well as moving the country one step closer to a democracy.

Okay, can we just talk about Ruffnut Thorston (Brilliantly voiced by Kristen Wiig) from How To Train Your Dragon 2

Every scene she showed up in had me in stitches. Talk about a scene-stealer. THE Best character, animation & comedy in this entire film for me. More please! :-)
