The Back

The shoulder blades curve away from the spine. Each shoulder blade (scapula) has a narrow bone that travels across it called the spine of the scapula. The spine of the scapula protrudes deeply into the shoulder muscle, ending in a sort of indented knob. When you look at the shoulder blade in someone's back, what you're really seeing is the spine of the scapula, not the actual top of the shoulder blade itself. The illustration below shows the actual shoulder blade bone.

Notice the basic shape created in the area between the spine of the scapula and the neck. By sketching this form as a guide, you'll be abie to more accurately draw the back.
