    My first attempt at hands suggested a bit more work. Most of these are 10 minute sketches. Still a long way to go but I'm on a journey.

    These are good but you might want to try longer than 10 mins. Don't worry about speed for now, just draw as long as it takes you to make the picture as good as you can. Working on construction and anatomy should help you. But overall you observe well and these are pretty cool. Drawing cross-contour drawings should also help you with construction. This helped me a lot with construction: http://www.proko.com/structure-basics-making-things-look-3d/ if it helps draw 3D shapes as guidelines before you draw the hand. Say, you could break the palm into a 3D box and the fingers into cynlinders, or use the method in the Proko video. I see that you are drawing the 2d shapes as guidlines and you are getting those correct but it's better to use 3D shapes as guidelines.

    I don't know if you've seen them but these videos may help you:


    Title of the video's a bit misleading for this one, but there's a guide to construction of the hand in this one too but I think everything else in the video should be helpful.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xsqbwu_nMI[/
    (I put the video in a link because for some reason you're not allowed to post more than one video)


    It's helpful to use anatomy diagrams as refs when you draw hands as well, so look up hand bones diagram and hand muscles diagram, and you should be sorted. Try to imagine the bones and muscles underneath the hand that can't be seen as you draw, and make sure you are drawing as if they are there. There are quite a few muscles in the hand so I don't mean you have to painstakingly think about every muscle that is there, just the basic bone structure mainly should work. Sometimes one or two muscles will show on the hand, or bones will show through in the different poses. In some hand poses the metacarpals show, or the externsor digitorum muscle shows.

    I have every faith in you that you can make it on this journey!

    These are in order of when they were drawn. The pic of Maya Angelou was focused more on the shading...I was trying to create depth. (I still don't know how to get these things turned. Sorry)

    I appreciate the educational links and advice. I'll try shooting more for accuracy and more of a 3d feel. I love shadows cause they do so much kewl stuff.

    You are copying too much and not thinking about structure, check you Loomis Head and hands book, Proko have construction and structure, as well http://drawabox.com/

Size:  25.5 KBPersonally I think the left side of the hair and the nose are the best but I can see where the rest of it is looking flat so I need to keep working

    Your figures are looking good, but they still feel pretty flat. It looks like you're drawing through them to see their structure, but only after you've drawn the outline. Really try to build the figures out of solid forms and understand how those forms sit in space.

    The proportions on your portraits are also getting better, but they're still looking flat or squished. This video might help as a guide to understanding the 'mask of the face' - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBv5z0Y2odE

    Keep at it, you're getting there. Just don't worry too much, there's no rush. Enjoy the process

    Tyvm for another very useful link. I especially like your feedback because you help address the problem and give some kind of a example for me to look at or the follow. I enjoyed the Steve Houston video so much that I actually signed up for a course that he has called new Masters Academy that addresses everything the Proko does but slightly more artsy view point I guess you could say. It’s helping a lot but there’s so much information I find myself jumping here and jump in there and learning about value and rhythms send. It’s such an exciting journey and I’m having a blast doing it.
    I’ve been spending quite a bit of time on figure drawing and gotten away from the heads for a little bit but I’ll be getting back to all of that. right now I’m studying the structure of the body so that I know what’s what’s underneath it and how to draw underneath it and then add to the form from that.
    I have a feeling with a Art I will never stop finding something new to learn. thanks again for your constructive helpful feedback.

    New Masters Academy has some really great material, but like you said there is a lot of it and for me, it was quite overwhelming. Definitely explore new ways to create art, but try not to jump around too much - stay focused on a particular aspect for as long as you feel like you're learning. Push hard, but don't burn yourself out to the point where you become disinterested in what you started out learning. I'm only speaking of the experience I've had and I don't want to sound too negative, so just remember any advice comes with a personal bias.

    Also, as boring as it might seem - I would recommend going back to the very basics, just drawing lines and feeling how the mark is made on the paper. Straight lines, over and over. Use a pen, use a crayon, use a marker. Draw circles and ellipses. Over and over. It's also a great warm-up anytime you sit down to draw, I find it gets your mind focused and you often feel like drawing much more if you simply put down a mark on your page. Then that blank canvas isn't so intimidating.
