Arms Above the Shoulder/Head Tutorial by DerSketchie Arms Above the Shoulder/Head Tutorial by DerSketchie
I can't believe how long it took me to make this one, this was something I had trouble with CONSTANTLY when I was first learning to draw. So this one's a bit of a "double digest" since it seemed like something that needed a lot of angles to fully explain/show in detail.

I hope this helps all of you out there saying "@($&#*%^&#*#@!!!! DRAWING. Y U NO WORK LIKE IN MY BRAIN?!"

 Somewhat like some of the other comments - an aspect I have often had a problem with, particularly the muscle movement as the arm re-positions.

It is stated on my profile page that all I want for these tutorials is for people to learn from them. This was used on a blog for learning how to draw and is sourced at the bottom with a link to my profile. I appreciate the diligence, it is very good of you, however I am okay with the use of this picture with the other anatomy references on the link you've posted, as long as they don't claim actual credit for them, which they specifically don't in the disclaimer on the general information on the right side of the website. It doesn't seem like anything is being infringed here.

You should write and publish a book on drawing how to's! You are so talented, and your drawings are so realistic! I would buy it for sure! But until then, keep those tutorials coming, cuz your amazing!
