Anatomy Tutorial- Collar Bone by JillLenaD Anatomy Tutorial- Collar Bone by JillLenaD
I would highly encourage you to NOT use my drawings for reference, they are just to show the concept.

If you can, get a hold of a proper anatomy book (I like Anatomy for the Artist myself), look in a mirror, or just find some stock reference.

I don't claim to be a medical illustrator. XD

Next will be hips I think..

[NOTE] I drew 6-7 ribs.. there should actually be .. ah 8-9 I think. I just meant 'ribs go here'. XD .. but yeah, the rib cage should end closer to halfway between the belly button and the bottom of the chest. NOT ALL UP IN THE CHEST AREA WHERE I DREW IT. .. I'll fix that eventually when I get time orz
Speaking of both, the lead singer of Skuter is wonderful reference for ribs and the collar bone [link]

You know, this made me realize that I seldom even draw (or shade) this feature of the body into my art. What was I thinking? ><

Great tutorial!

It's a nice feature to add! Some body types don't even allow you to see it though, so maybe that's what happened.

Thank you!

Thanks, this was really helpful! :D
I especially liked how you pointed out common mistakes. I actually started fixing that problem after realizing that it looked wrong, but looking back at some of my first submissions, I was definitely guilty of the second one! ^^; Now, I'll remember to make sure I've got it right

And here is something I've been doing wrong for years. :p Thanks for the enlightenment! {I also wish I could draw skeletal structures like you do. :I)
