part of 1 hour study
Great ! I feel a fine use of black and white hatches to give a kind of vividness to that hand.
THank you so much. I have really come to enjoy toned paper.
if you're going for realism, the tips of the fingers are far too big, and the base of the index finger too thin. Stylistically it looks great though, and the emphasized proportions lend to the bold lines and crosshatching!
I have a good grip on realism and when I do these studies I'm actually pushing the edges of shape and design. So this was a deliberate step in the opposite of realism.
