Below are step by step tutorial how to draw body with images.
Step 1, I start out with a really rough line for torso then connect to the sphere head shape.  The x mark on the head indicates the front direction of the face.  Also I sketch out shapes of both arms along the side of the body.  If you notice, there is a slight s curve align vertically with the both from top of the head to legs.

Step 2, I start draw simple facial structure, more muscle structure to both arms, and some pectoral with abdominal muscles in front of the body.

Step 3, I begin to flesh out detail on his face and the top part of his right arm.  At this point, I already have under drawing established, all I have to do is to add muscle definition along the initial sketch line and make sure the proportion is correct.

Step 4, now I draw and shade the whole right arm.  I start with his right shoulder or deltoid, then upper arm with bicep and tricep.  Then I draw forearm along with a hand.  Then I went back in to finish the body.  I first get the chest muscle or pectorals in place first, then I will draw abdominal muscles along with rib cage.

Step 5, I then draw his left arm.  Then I add more value to the rest of the body to make it a little more realistic than just having line drawn.
