    Hi there,

    You might want to resize your pic. It's soooo big, i can't even see all of it and that makes it a bit hard to critique.

    Lifedrawings are a really good way to learn anatomy, but you might want to spend more time on your sketches in the future. At this moment you only used lines and some smudges to indicate the arm is a 3d object. This makes the whole drawing very flat. Check up on rendering, form, shape and linequality. If you want to study anatomy when not using a life model, try getting a book by Burne Hogarth or Andrew Loomis.

    Keep drawing!

    Keep drawing! The cool thing about hands is that there's always an easy reference. Study the anatomy a bit before you delve into a drawing of your own hand. Read what Bridgeman and Loomis have to say about hands and then try to recognize the underlying structures of your OWN hand when you're drawing.

    try thinking of the 3 dimensional aspects of your hand (or whatever you are drawing). If you look at your wrist, or your fingers, you will see that if you simplify the shape they make, it is almost a box. You want to plane these things out on your drawing by shading with, or against, the form. Take this drawing by steak-tron for example
    http://www.kempart.com/Artwork%20popups/october_F4.jpg
    look at her right arm. He is showing that there is a plane (meaning, a surface) along the side of her arm by shading that area against the form (along the short side). the lines show us the form of the arm is wrapping around in a cylindrical fashion. On the neck, he shades with the form (in the long direction), and this shows us the neck is going upwardly vertical into space, as well as wrapping around. Try to think about that in your own drawing. How the fingers are cylinders, and the wrist is a box shape, etc. hope this helps.

    I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.
