Hands can be a bit of a challenge. At one time I had gotten pretty good at hands and feet. When I was in college we had to turn in a sketchbook for a drawing class and working 2 jobs, I didn't always have time to work on it. so I would show up to my art history class early and draw my own left hand and my feet propped up on the chair in front of me. About the only other thing in that sketchbook during the second half of the semester was the podium in the art history class and 2 sculptures, one outside the art history classroom and one outside the art building.
But after years of drawing mostly kitties and cute dragons, I seem to have gotten out of practice of drawing hands well. So capturing the dramatic hand gestures on this made me very happy. Yes, I had a photo reference, but that doesn't mean a think if you can't actually a hand.
And happy Solstice, Apocalypse Day or whatever it is you are celebrating on this lovely Decemeber 21st. Here is Dallas it is beautiful and sunny and way too nice a day for the world to end, but probably a good day for sun worshiping.
