Nice job on your gestures and tones of that hand above, Hayunb.

Again, I'm really not getting too much of the liveliness of the gestures of the outlines, of the overall statement of those gestures. Would you please loosen up your hand-eye coordination with a 90 second contour drawing, purely (pure contour)

The reason is because, it can, shall and will be able to mix quick sketching with drawing of the right over the left side or your brain.

Check out this PDF for more details.

My hat's off to you and your studies.


Thank you very much as well as for the additional pdf.

Get to know the structure of the hand a bit more, how the bones fill up the skin and fat. There's a lot of great artists out there and I learned a lot from Stephen Rogers Peck, but a lot of people study George Bridgeman and his anatomy drafts and sketches are spectacular from what I've seen too. Search something like "structure of the hand for artists" and do a deep dive if you want to get good at hands. Through that you'll learn a bit more about the volume of thhe hand, it's bones, how to simplify it etc. A little bit more about the nuance in it's features which help really sell it. Where it's at currently, the fingers are simplified into cylinders well, knowing the structure you could improve on the seperation of the knuckles and the tapering which occurs going down the fingers. The fingers lengths feel a bit too even. I think you could improve on selling the tightness on the rope as well, considering it's taut. I'd like to see you going darker with your values as well.

You're in a fine spot, keep moving forward. You're getting some key things with form/structure and adding value alongside getting a hand, If you have any questionss let me know! Happy Drawing!
