making up for other areas perhaps?

Good start! You might want to consider starting off with less geometry and then adding as you need it.

Looking forward to it.

Please keep your posts within one thread per subject.

Think about how the chest muscle blends up into the shoulder and bicep... you'll want to model it similarly.
