OK! Let's start drawing our arm now! First, draw a small circle to trapezius of your character. Next, add another circle (a little bigger his time) to form the shoulder. I added a small square around both shapes to help you sketch them in the right place.

Now the arm itself! Draw a long oval shape below the shoulder. You don't need to draw a very large shape to make your character muscular. Under the arm, draw a little rectangle to represent the junction between the arm and the forearm. The elbow will be located below this new shape.

Step 4
