Sorry these are so late… I'm making sure to post them up before issuing the next challenge. Which should post shortly.
On the whole I'm pretty happy with how I handled the exercise, but plan to do more like this in the future to beef up my knowledge of anatomy and depicting the hand… I tried to draw as much as I could while reminding myself, that I should always practice… Always... Every Day...
Originally I thought I'd just work from random photos but, then I remembered that I had this book titled "The Book of a Hundred Hands" By George B. Bridgman.
It's a beautiful little book with plenty of descriptive hand drawings, along with the breakdown of structures within the hand, fingers, and the thumb. I looked at his drawings for inspiration, and also found myself redrawing hands multiple times to get a feeling for it as well as trying to work with line and some tone on a halftone sheet to study volume. Wanted to bust out some white pencil highlights in these image... Sadly, I ran out of time...
Well Onward to the next challenge!
Hope you dig,
