Re: Basic 101: Class 17 - Hands and Feet

Hi, here are my sketches for hands and feet. I had to squint down, and position my feet to see them to draw! So one foot is standing up on its ankle. Drew my left hand - front and back, but not too many lines, though! Prabha

Very well done, Prabha .
That hand drawing has a classical quality.

Re: Basic 101: Class 17 - Hands and Feet

Starting Class 17. I may be spending a little extra time getting this class completed, as it's something I'd like to learn to do really well. Hands (and feet, to a lesser degree in my mind because they're usually covered) can say so much about a person and convey a wide range of moods and emotions. But not to put the cart before the horse, I'll start with the basics. Here is the first phase of the assignment (the practice sketches at the beginning of the thread). --Lee

Re: Basic 101: Class 17 - Hands and Feet

You're off to a good start, Lee .
I'd advise to work bigger. Particularly the sketch of the hands would profit of a larger scale. It facilitates a looser approach.

Re: Basic 101: Class 17 - Hands and Feet

Thanks Arnoud, Here are drawings of my hands. Drawing with my left hand (non predominant) was a first time interesting experience -- but just had to try it after reading some of the initial posts. These are on 8-1/2 x 11 inch paper.

Re: Basic 101: Class 17 - Hands and Feet

Very good job, Lee .
You did a good rendition of the correct form of the fingers.
I'd suggest to look again at the thumb of the hand with the brush. I think it would be very straining to keep your thumb twisted like that. You drew it as if looking straight on but in gripping it is turned towards the fingers.

If you want to delve deeper on this subject, I can recommend a Group Study thread in The Figure Forum.

Keep up the good work .

Re: Basic 101: Class 17 - Hands and Feet

Thanks for your comments. I've looked at the link you provided and bookmarked some of the links posted there to revisit when I have more time. I've made some changes to the thumb area of the hand drawing with the brush, getting myself as close to original position as I could. The hand is resting on a table and I am sitting at the table looking down at it. I also ended up seeing the base of the hand as wider than I depicted first time around. Think this is an improvement. Had a devil of time positioning the nail on the thumb to where it looked close to what I was seeing in real life. Lee
