Q+D Anatomy Lessons- Neck and Shoulders by Turtle-Arts Q+D Anatomy Lessons- Neck and Shoulders by Turtle-Arts
Because you guys keep asking, and I keep promising to do some anatomy and pose tutorials. But when I got to thinking of all the things I wanted to tell you about drawing human anatomy, I realized it was going to take way too long to do in one tutorial. And it would have been huge. >_<

So I've decided to do these little tutorials about more specific areas of the human body. Mainly ones that get overlooked by a lot of aspiring artists, or that people make common mistakes with. I'm planning on doing ones for arms (how they move and connect to the shoulders), one for the torso and abdomen, and one for legs. Hands/feet and faces may come after that, and I'd like to do a tutorial on posing your characters... or maybe just another sheet of gesture drawings. XD

So yes, enjoy my five-minute anatomy lesson gift to you! :thumbsup: I hope you find it helpful! ^^

P.S. I forgot, there's a 4th forgotten bump on the profile! It's the Adam's Apple, which is of course only present on men. It's very defined on some guys, and hardly present on others. When it's overly pronounced, it almost makes the neck "vulture-like" is shape. :nod:

What is the name of the muscle you mentioned? I never saw it in real life (And I observe a lot) and i didn't even find references in anatomy books.

The one on the neck? It's the top of the trapezius muscle. The muscle is mostly on your back, but the topmost bit is seen from the front.
