Description: This is going to be a cool lesson because it will show you in detail, "how to draw arms, step by step”. I have to say, drawing arms can be a bit complicated if you don't know what your doing, or if you're an artist that is just starting their adventures with drawing. Arms has got to be just as hard as drawing hands and feet. The reason being is because they are so detailed, and defined. As you know, the human arm comes in many different shapes, sizes, tones, and stricture. When drawing body parts like the arm, you have to draw other parts of the human body along with it. For instance, when drawing an arm, you have to first draw the shoulder, before you draw a shoulder you have to draw the collar bone. So, having said all that I have, this means that in order to have a completed sketch of an arm, you are going to have to draw a collar, shoulder, and then the arm and hand. Not only that but, you will also have to choose what type of build you want your arm to be. If you draw a girl or woman, your arm should be sketched in a feminine fashion. For a boy or man, the arm needs to be more masculine and strong looking. I like to draw anime and manga characters, a lot. The only reason why I improved with drawing body parts, is because I draw bodies everyday. You too can also be a good artist if you practice everyday, and have persistence, and discipline. Well, that does it for me. I will be back tomorrow with some more drawing fun. Have a blast with this tutorial on β€œhow to draw arms, step by step”. Meet me back again to have some more fun. Peace peeps, and have a happy day!
