I was looking for a tutorial yesterday on the web that gave a lesson on "how to draw an arm step by step”. Unfortunately I did not find one. So that is what made me want to do a lesson on an arm. And instead of doing a drawing on an ordinary arm, I drew one that looks very similar to the ones you see in the store when you are looking for a costume for Halloween, or when you want to decorate your yard with gravestones, human limbs, and skulls. I personally think that this arm came out wicked cool and I know some of you will not approve because of the blood and such. I just want to remind you guys that this is purely drawn out of fun for the Halloween season. If you don’t want the gory details for this arm, all you have to do is leave out the blood lines and draw the finger nails to look clean and clipped. All in all I think in the end you will like this lesson on β€œhow to draw an arm step by step”. I have to go because there is more work to do and other lessons that are waiting for my attention.
