(Right) Arm Study by Ametystical (Right) Arm Study by Ametystical
Front, back and outer/inner side views of the right arm.

Supine = when the palm of the hand is facing forward

Prone = when the back of the hand is facing forward. When the arm is in prone position the radius (forearm bone to the side of the thumb) cross the ulna (forearm bone to the side of the little finger).

Each muscle is colored with a different color. The orange colored area is actually a group of flexor muscles; the dark green colored area is a group of extensor muscles. The triceps (from Latin 'three heads') is colored with just one color but of course the divisions of its heads should not be ignored; the same goes for the biceps. The uncolored area next to the yellow area (triceps) is the tendon of the triceps.




Torso study

Leg study

Hand study

Foot study

Head and neck study




After hands and feet, arms are the most complicated thing to draw for me. It was difficult to draw even looking at the reference. I'll need to draw them infinite times till get all the shapes memorized... :yawn:

Thank you so much for this! I was completely confused about arms, because even when trying to reference my own it was going along the lines of whaaat?? how does this thing flip like that this is freaky how do my bones bend. You've done a brilliant job breaking it down!

Yeah, arms can be tricky; it's good to know the muscles and bones to better understand it ^^

I'm glad you find it helpful.

Thanks! I did it in Photoshop and used splatter brushes on some parts.

Thank you so much for providing the underarm view; I feel like that area gets really neglected when it comes to anatomy tutorials, so when I have to draw it I get lost. But not anymore. ;) :thumbsup:
