    Before and after.

    The arms in the top version were the leftover elements from the original art supplied by the client. After changing the entire design I felt the arms needed a workout to increase their definition before making a sandblasted sign out of the artwork.

    A quick redraw in illustrator and VIOLA!

    You might wanna re-do the scalene muscles area as I've done. Someone built up like that..... their neck muscles aren't gonna suddenly go inward. They'll continue up the rest of the neck.

    Except those aren't scalene muscles, they are deltoids. ;)

    The first one looks like old school 80's style. The second one looks more cutting edge. Great job on the redo, I like it.

    Muck better. BTW, I really appreciate the details of the thick to thin / varying weight outlines...big improvement, too bad you had to use the type though.

    Those little changes can make all the difference. The second one is nice.
