    BOOGERS

    Hello! Thanks for commenting/critiquing. :-)

    My goals:
    1) Work more in traditional mediums.
    2) Refine anatomy skillz.
    3) Experiment with different compositions.

    I'm not sure how I edit previous posts while including more attached images...

    Taichi hand signs.

    not sure what tai chi has to do with hand signs but that's a good start on hand studies. make sure you don't neglect other parts of the body!

    BigZam: Thank you. I'll be starting the torso and arm soon, along with drapery. Since I have trouble with perspective drawing, I'll be trying that out as well.

    Zeitwolf: I'm not that great at them either hehe. I've (albeit roughly) sketched out the regions I think of when I draw hands in one of the hand sketches below.

    I watched my friend play his Bioshock demo yesterday, and it was awesome!

    Here are some more hand sketches, along with some cutting board fingers.

    I'm still working on the hands, but I've begun studying the forearm. There are so many different muscles there. Asides from that, I'm working on drapery as well.

    I'm listening the Miser, a Dallas alternative rock band, right now: Myspace

    I'm not sure if the arm muscles are correct or not, as I tried applying muscle diagrams to models I referenced from in a swimming magazine. I'm especially confused about fore arm muscles, but I'm beginning to understand their functions.

    Wow those colours look delicious. The cloudscape is great and though the shadings on the hands are pretty edgeless which disturbs a bit especially on overlapping parts IMO, the colours make them look lively.

    I think the palm of the hand is a structure you could best get the hang of by dividing it in 3d shapes like the cone in the root of the thumb etc and learning carefully which forms bend in what ways in what positions, and which distances stay the same. Your thumbs seem to sometimes attach to the palm somehow weirdly with varying proportions and knuckle placement. They look often too small but don't know if you just have a small thumb. I've found life sketches to be little use for learning the hand structure itself (probably the human 3d view from 2 different directions always messing the finger proportions up with something as near as the left hand) but it might work different for different people. I don't know if a part of those are from your head but I hope you're doing some memory practices too.

    Forearm studies look very correct to me, keep these coming!

    Good stuff, studies are important and are always helpful. I would just say for now try and find some good anatomy reference, the bridgman books or peck's atlas of human anatomy for the artist, they get into how the function creates the form a bit more than some books out there, so they are helpful for being able to draw from memory. Keep it up.

    Thanks smuli: I tried some hands from memory, as seen below, and I see that thumbs are quite a problem for me ehe. I'll find some diagrams to learn the musculature.

    Thank you Aedman: I've heard of the Bridgman Books before, so I'll see if I can find those. It will definitely help to understand the functions of the muscles.

    Some (deformed) hands for sale!

    Hey Ninetales,

    All these studies of yours reminded that I wanted to do the same thing. Studies of individual bodyparts, sheets and sheets of them. But never got to doing them. I was like "I'll just do the whole body", haha, seemed to work. But I will still come to doing studies of individual bodyparts.
    Do you have an anatomy book? I see that you're saying you're confused with the forearm muscles and stuff..This is where knowing bones, muscles and where they attach comes to help. My drawings really improved once I've learned anatomy better.

    Thank you razz: I don't have an anatomy book right now, but I'm going to Barnes and Nobles or Half Price this weekend to find Bridgeman's Books. I think that might help in ironing out the muscle functions.

    I didn't do any anatomy sketching today. Urg.
