Brutal Monk,

You are not stupid! We have a million threads here, and it can be confusing. You may do whichever you wish...if you are going to keep adding to your own thread, it's fine that you've created one (I've started posting to it). It's completely up to you. You are free to keep your own thread of your own work, and not just hand studies ~ so, you may wish to rename your thread something like: Anatomy Thread of Brutal Monk. It's up to you.

If you prefer, I can get your hand studies moved here, but it's not required.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Here's my most recent hand studies done in Photoshop earlier this summer. As far as I remember, they each took about 2 hours or so. I have some pencil studies as well but they're pretty old and I should probably do some new ones.

I prefer this one


I liked the colouring on this one but it's a little off, the thumb especially, though my fingers are stubby (I'll never be a hand model like JP Prewitt). This painting made my hand cramp.

Amerasu,

These are great! You know, it's funny, because I prefer the second one...the skin tones are great, and you've captured a real sense of the texture of the flesh...and while I agree that there are some minor drawing problems, overall I would say this is just a beautiful piece! Your first piece with the red bkgrd is also very nice, but it reads as 'flatter' to me, and there's a funny connection between the middle and forefinger (which could be easily fixed).

Nice work, it's really interesting to see digital life studies! I suppose that will probably become the norm.

Thanks for posting!

Thanks for the comments Rebecca. You're right of course! I just don't like the way the hand looks in the second painting though it's clearly the better one

so these are some bridgman hand studies i did a couple weeks ago. all done in 0.7 H mech pencil, and i worked on them over 2 or 3 days (total time), working a little on them each night. just studying from the bridgman book and copying them down, but taking my time to study the bones and what they look like and understand how they fit in the hand and all that, so i went really slow. to start, i put down basic shapes to define the area that it would be drawn in, lightly laid down the lines and kept tweaking them until i felt the proportions were pretty good, then i went over the good lines to get them darker. hope you like, crits and comments plz.

as there's only 1 3d set here, and i'm bored, i'll drop this in. They aren't finished, but dunno when i'll go back to them yet so figured i'd post. The little finger cuts in, the finger nails shadow where they shouldnt, and the thumb is a weird shape + others. All done in Silo. might Zbrush them once i've finsiehd the model, or not bother, i haven't decided.
Don't expect too much! The more i look at them the less i want to post! oh well, don't hurt me





Have a good one.

NoirQ,

Hurt you? Lol! Nah...these look pretty cool! I agree they need some tweaking, but what of any of our work could do without a little tweaking? If you do decide to ZBrush these puppies, post 'em up! It's great to see. Thanks for posting!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Here is an 18*24 charcoal hand drawing I did today. C&C appreciated. I might mention that the picture didn't turn out too well since it is sunny outside today and I have a cheap digital camera.

gardogg,

Good to see you post more work! I have to say that this piece has a very nice emotional quality which is quite interesting to see...the smoothness of the charcoal shading in the back has a nice timbre which rings true to the subject matter.

I like the older person's hand a lot, but the small child's hand has more drawing problems which just has to do with the number of planes (too few) used to describe it. Children's hands can be quite tricky, due to the fact that their bone structure is still soft, and what structure is there is hidden under quite a lot of fat.

I think the best way to improve in the area of hands is to draw multiple images of the underlying bone structure. For example, reference such as this can be a great resource from which to draw:



http://www.bio.psu.edu/people/faculty/strauss/anatomy/skel/pics/Hand2.jpg

Similar to the work done in the Anatomy Review 003, doing a rendering from this kind of reference (and that of the overlying muscle structure) is the best way to increase one's confidence when drawing various parts of the body, such as hands.

Great stuff, and hope to see more of your work!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Thanks Rebecca. Your words are an encouragement to me, which is why I plan to continue to post! You aren't afraid to give crits either, which is even more helpful at times than praise. I appreciate this.

I'm sure you could have guessed that this was done using a photo reference (it would be hard to keep a baby and a middle aged man in this pose for an hour or so). So, I figured why not post the photo too so you can compare. I see that the baby's hand isn't working... but I can't put my finger on exactly what to change. Also, I do intend to make the skeleton sketches that you recommended

Here is the photo along with the charcoal sketch for comparison. Let me know if you can spot the major issues that I should fix.

gardogg,

No problem! I'm happy you're showing us all your work! While I did realize that your drawing was done from a photo, I thought the nice thing about it was that it didn't scream 'photo reference used!' at me. This can be pretty tough to do, so I'm impressed by that.

Give me a bit and I'll try to use my powers of analysis (lol!) to figure out what's amiss with the drawing of the hand. Though, in truth, I think that it's better for you to do lots of skeletal / hand studies (as you've said you'd do ) as this will increase your ability to spot problems and go after their solution.

It's great to see your stuff, so keep posting away!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

So have you pinpointed the problem spots yet? I would like to fix it before I submit it in my Drawing 1 class (I conveniently have been trying to work in assignments that also apply to this forum )
