YeeWu,
Those are looking really good ^_^ I like the stylized shading. Do you veer more toward comic book styles or realism in most of your art?

theseraphimabove: Thanks! My figurative work has always tended to veer towards comics/cartoons. I'm still working on the realism

well u hand doesn't follow the curve that well.

Where ur fingers start,u have more or less a straight line instead of a curve,so it looks as if when ur fingers are streched out,they will all be the same size.

i can't really crit as i don't know what ur actual hand looks like,and everything i say could be completly wrong.

Not exactly a study, just an experiment with pen and water in Painter Classic. 45 mins.



I know there's something wrong but i can't spot it. Critiques anyone?

these are past studies, the first image is a compilation, and the last two were done without any real reference. Not sure how much time i spent on the first two, but the last one i did today, i'd say, 5 minutes or so...not completely sure. done in pencil







hope this is cool. I freaking love this sub-forum!

This is my hand.

It took me about 20 min.

Hate the way I draw... In the process I allways lose the 3d look. It turn out as a slopy 2d picture..




I love Labers 2nd drawing with the pen. That is ,,my cind of way" to make skeches....

Laber: Thanks for the comment! My fingers are actually pretty double-jointed, so they can do weird things. I meant to exaggerate that, but perhaps I may have taken that a bit too far, as you pointed out. You have some nice hand drawings Your top drawing, the fist, looks like it has an extra joint in it.

Maxell: I think your drawing is pretty solid, but you're losing some form when you have the the outer part of the hand concaving instead of convexing. Also, the bony part of the wrist should appear further back, more to the left, as it begins before the thumb area does.
