Looking for advice on what looks to be my smallest muscle group..

Just trying to get some input as to what you guys think I should focus on for a bit more size. I've never done a bulk, just a constant lean meat lowww carbs for 3 years and i've gained 30+ lbs so theres no need for a bulk. I'll also add a pic before I started lifting just for extra input.

What does an intermediate male lifter's body look like?

I've just started lifting and my goal is to reach an intermediate level. I read that to be an intermediate lifter, you should be able to bench press 1xBW for 10 reps and squat 1.5xBW for 10 reps. What does someone's physique typically look like after achieving this, at a 10-15% body fat level?
