This needed an uplift badly. I've been having issues drawing necks and shoulders lately so I figured it would be beneficial.
I know all these are anatomically correct because I basically took a bunch of pics of my neck and then traced. XD
Ahm a cheater I know.
There ya go 24 goddamn necks and shoulders... well... 48ish shoulders...

I could not find a really good reference for necks on this site so I figured I'd make my own lol. I just took a bunch of pics of my neck in different angles and copied.

Hope this comes in handy

the 3rd one looks hard to adapt because the face is incompleted.

Thank you so much. There's only so long you can look at your neck in the mirror before going insane. :P

Thank you so much.  I have been struggling to get my head/neck/shoulders to turn out correctly.  I think this is the single most helpful thing I have found, and my technique improved greatly within minutes of finding this.
