How to Draw Bows and Arrows

There is an error on the images below, a visual guide on How to Draw Bows and Arrows - The mistake is the "compound bow", which is not a compound bow. It looks to be a Turkish/Scythian/Mandarin style composite bow. Sadly so many people confuse compound and composite.

Compound bows have wheels and pulleys. Composite bows are made of different materials (wood laminates, antler, sinew, etc) to give them extra strength.

You will see another error above, where the hand is drawing back an arrow with only two fingers. Three is the normal number.
