Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw female biceps. We're going to start with the basic shape of the head, just draw an oval, put a neck in and fill in the top of her body, however you like and then we're going to put in a basic arm line here and this arm can just drop down. So now we're going to focus on the actual arm. So it's the bicep which is the top of the arm right here. We need to just draw in a couple little curves, curved lines. You're going to see the underneath of her armpit and then this line one bit curve over here to the elbow. Now we need this line to curve into the elbow because this part of the arm is going to come up behind. It's always good, you can look at yourself in the mirror, same with guys, it's this basic idea and just one line here and then we're going to make this line a nice straight line. It's always nice to have a change up between lots of curves and lots of straight lines. We need to make it a little bit more detailed so I'm going to do some shading under in the armpit. Now your biceps don't have to be this pronounced. I'm just making them more obvious so you can see what sort of lines you need. And just shade in under this side of the arm. I'm going to make this a little bit smaller and the same with up here. We're going to shade in up here. If you had a lighter color pencil, you could draw some lighter sort of lines in there just like so to make it look like you've got some different color shading in, same down here and then we draw the hand in. I'm just going to do mine really simply and there we go. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw female biceps.
