Week 4 - Art

Title: Blue Sketched Hands
Size: 11 by 8 and 1/2 inches
This piece portrays my right hand, being great. While drawing, I tried to capture a few of the different angles you can look at hands from.

This picture was done in pen.

When I read the assignment, my thought process was a bit like this:
"A hand? I've done hands before. I can do hands... But how can I make it less "generic hand drawing"? Well, I guess I can always use pen. That makes things more interesting to draw at least. Wait! Pen color was never specified in the criteria!  I'll do some blue hands. Yes, that's quite less generic than a pencil drawing..." (Cackles evilly)

So... yeah. Blue hands. Trying to draw all these hands made me realize though, negative space is essential. Sometimes I'd be trying to draw fingers or something, and it just wouldn't look right, but then once I started trying to draw around the shapes of the negative space, it started going much more nicely. :D

  1. All right hands, eh? Maybe a challenge would be to do a left hand. Not necessarily your own.
