CDs quick Shoulder tutorial by mayshing CDs quick Shoulder tutorial by mayshing
:star: My manga series 2Masters | My manga series E-depth Angel | My facebook | My tumblr :star:

As requested. :P Now i will go back to animating.

Anatomy shoulder area tutorial, dos and don'ts.

Edit: added different kinds of common stiffness.

Edit 2: this tutorial only serves your conceptual purpose, showing you what is the correct base to use for construction.

How to use this tutorial: Start by applying the base shown in the tutorial, keep the moveable parts of the shoulders in mind when you practice.


What this tutorial will not do:
- It doesn't help you with proportional/perspective problems comes with using the construction.


-it won't improve your skill unless you go and find more references and practice.

See: :iconartistshospital: for general anatomy references and tutorials.

Just a quick question; if you wanted to draw a biped that had two sets of arms, (like Machamp from pokemon, for example,) how would tose connect together in relation to the rest of the torso? I've been working on a project and can't seem to get that part to look natural.

i will treat it like its a tumor on his back. lol The style allows it to work without the proper anatomy.

This is really nice because I always have so much trouble drawing men! That, and I've never had a serious art lesson lyk ever! I had the typical elementary and middle school classes and I took one class in high school, but it was a very general art class and didn't teach anything about anatomy that I didn't already know for kiddie how-to-draw books. So for self taught people like me, stuff like this is gold.

Thanks for your help, I forgot to add help on shoulders. Hehe, and legs and hair? I always thought it was eyes ( if detailed ). lol. But yeah, thanks a lot! Not only this helped me draw shoulders correctly.. I can draw men o:
