How Do You Create Arms and Elbows?

Hello! I am new to Onshape but my physics teacher recommended the forum if we had any questions since he was new to it as well.

Link: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/77a94cb40aef4a876f4d642d/w/4b305a45cf2f571286a3c775/e/b08b400edf72388ea610518d

I am fooling around and trying to create the character Waluigi and I was wondering how I create the arms. I tried mirroring the arms across the Right plane, but it wouldn't allow me to do that and creating an entirely new object resulted in an uneven arm. Is there any way to mirror one of the arms across the other side of the body? 

I decided to move onto elbows, the surface was uneven from the arm and the curve. Is there an option to straighten and smooth it out? Would it require a centering of the path on the surface somehow? 

Thanks for looking! Sorry if these are obvious

    If you curve an arm the way it is, is it really tangible towards the human body in every aspect of life.
