Mayalily Posted July 10, 2011 Share Posted July 10, 2011 Most avatars, or almost all, have their arms too short.To check out how long your arms actually are is to stand up straight, good posture, now lower your arms down towards your legs. Your wrists and hands should fall about mid thigh area. To test this, place your wrists on your thighs, then completely relax your hand to see where your hand falls on the thigh area. Most avatars have their arms at about hip length and that is way too short.This is a helpful hint I learned when I was painting (not currently painting at this time). Follow the steps above to see where your arm length should be. I set mine at about 77 and it looks pretty good, but might need to even go a little further than 77. I'm still working on getting my arm length right also but I'm getting pretty close. ETA: This thread is for human avatar arms and shapes only, please.
