Shoulder Girdle continued... by N3M0S1S Shoulder Girdle continued... by N3M0S1S
some extra random notes concerning the shoulder girdle's muscles and mass forms. This is medium level detail considering you could choose to draw every muscle fiber, but less is most often more. Sometimes just hinting at these forms is best, but to do that effectively you gotta know them pretty darn well. 

Enjoy! I believe the next tutorial will be about elbows and knees, b/c those are tough for a lot of folks. still, I NEED SUGGESTIONS! What do you wanna see? 

special thanks to  NovaCatTrueborn for saying that a more muscle focused tutorial would help. (See! I do listen to ur comments.)

Great tutorial.

The explanations are useful. Some people will only look at the pictures, but when you're trying to get better in human anatomy, this kind of explanations help to understand. And understanding is necessary to get better.

Thanks. Sometimes I wonder if anyone actually reads these things, or just takes in the images. I'm glad you like them.

Yes sometimes, there's a sense that nobody reads the "freaking" manual!! :D 

I think this is very helpful for anyone who really wants to learn to draw.
In my country there's no Cartooning Schools and I can't afford  art classes  
I read any tutorial or how to draw book that come into my hands.

I admire People like you,  You're  helping a lot of students around the world!

Best regards!

This is an interesting tutorial.... 

I'll make sure to add to my favs and hope it improves my own works.

These muscle and movement tutorials are incredibly useful. Isolating areas is great to understand what's going on. I've looked at anatomy a lot, but sometimes a slightly more macroscopic view (with colors) is what you really need.

Yeah, it sure as hell helped me. I read michael hampton's book and that's how he clearly divided the landscape so I could make sense of it. 

---> He does kinda turn the body into a robotic-like structure so make sure to stay loose if ur gonna look it up.

I literally just took out a bunch of biology/anatomy books and kind of learned how the body worked. It helped, but sometimes my anatomy is super stiff. So regardless I need to learn how to loosen the drawing joints. Haha.

Thanks for the book names! I'll definitely add them to my resource list (:
