Well after being forced to settle on a speed drawing, I decided I wanted to do a video and keep the full commentary, regardless of how bad it may turn out, because I’ll never learn otherwise. So, here you guys go!
Yesterday I decided to draw a nondescript hand drawing a cool-looking knife. The knife would be like something out of Warhammer 40K, emblazoned with tiny skulls and biomechanical tubes and crap and being two sizes too big.
The knife… didn’t really happen, but that’s okay. My main focus was on the hand that was holding it. Let’s face it, I’m terrible with hands. It doesn’t make me feel bad saying it, even the guys getting paid to do this stuff have trouble with it. If you don’t believe me, just check out Google. Anyway, yesterday I actually had a hand turn out decent. It wasn’t quite in the pose I was going for, but a learning experience is a learning experience. After some time with it I started going with visual reference (Which is to say, I ogled my hand as onlookers backed away slowly).
Here’s the not-so-final product, with another hand I didn’t quite have time to finish.
