Default Arm Problems

Hello, I am currently modeling a general human body. I am working on the arm, and I switch from rough to smooth to see how everything looks. But, after making my arm and smoothing it out, below are the results:

Default smoothing

Try coverting the poly mesh into a subdivisional surface for a smoother look.

How did you make your arm extrude face from the body or combine it with the body ?

From your first pic and second, well it looks like I would expect it too when you make a poly smooth. So i'm a bit confused at to your problem.

Default Smooth options

If you want to keep working with poly's try increasing the subdivision levels to 2.
