Q+D Anatomy Lessons- Arms and Shoulders by Turtle-Arts Q+D Anatomy Lessons- Arms and Shoulders by Turtle-Arts
Time for another quick and dirty anatomy lesson with Turtle, as promised! ^^ Today's subject is the ever elusive appendage known as...The Arm (dun dun duuun!!) Lol! XD This one's a fair bit longer than the neck one because there's more to talk about here. :I So this is more of a fifteen minute lesson than a five minute one. But yeah, I hope you enjoy it! And sorry for any typos.

Neck and Shoulders tutorial-

Wow, this is really helpful, I hope you don't mind me saving it in my computer for reference. kaomoji set 1 9/19

The chest and arms have so many lumpy, muscle-y details that I don't even notice. I'm guilty of so many of the errors you pointed out here. :iconlazycryplz:
