Re: Basic 101: Class 17 - Hands and Feet

Very good job, William .
I'm a bit curious about the top sketch of your hand. It seems to me that the index is twisted clockwise and the little finger counterclockwise .
The last drawing is a bit light in its whole IMO, but you did a good rendition of the correct form of 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

Thank you for the C&C.

About the lightness. Is it mostly the midtones where i'm getting it wrong?

Here's the reference I was using.



I can see areas in the palm and thumb joint that could be darkened. But i'm interested if I need to choose a darker tone in general.

I'm trying to layer up from 4H and 2H - HB seems to be where I leave the midtones, 4H in highlights mostly, 2B in darker areas and 4B in crevices etc. I'd really like to improve to be honest.

William -
Look how the drawing is so much flatter than the reference. (And I don't mean the background)



And even the reference is rather flat. Compare with the contrast in top B&W photographs.

Thanks

I did a little more work on it and I think it's a bit better? Still flat in areas, buuut I smoothed some of the rougher spots... it's possible i've lost the plot
