Quick shoulder tut by MaullarMaullar Quick shoulder tut by MaullarMaullar
One of the most easily avoidable newbie mistakes is raising the character's arm without raising the shoulder. Naturally, this looks awkward as hell. Remember, the shoulder isn't fixed to the torso--the entire joint can move up, down, forward, and back. If that weren't the case, we wouldn't be able to reach behind us.

Basic body structure (in purple, with shoulders highlighted in pink) comes from here

Oh my GOD. Thank you for this - something has seemed off about my shoulder drawings for the LONGEST time, and I could never figure out why!

This is a helpful reference. Knew there was something with the shoulders but wasn't sure how it worked, so thanks for the tip!
