5min-12+min hands (10-12 oct)

Viewed the photo for 5 or 10min, but went over time in some cases to continue shading. Brush pen + zig art & graphic markers


I really like your hands! Your shading does a nice job of showing plan changes on the hands, and making them feel 3D. I think that your best drawings are the ones where the hands are interacting with nothing but themselves. The ones where the hand is interacting with an object don't quite feel quite as solid. Especially in regards to the drawing with the rope, it's hard to me to tell what the fingers are doing to the rope, exactly (are they pinching the rope? Is one curled around the rope? Is the rope behind both fingers or just one?). Given how solid your simpler hands are, it definetly seems like you could start to focus on more complicated references.


Thanks for the feedback! You're right, I do tend to have trouble with hands + objects, and I think it's partly because I concentrate more on the hand and only draw the object as an afterthought, which could make them seem disconnected. I'll try to pay more attention to the environment in my next studies.
