Another one of my bracelets today, I was serious about working on my hand illustrations for a couple of days. Still not quite there, looking at it on a computer screen, it seems really obvious that I probably need to look at adding in definite lines to separate fingers.
So I’m actually quite proud of myself for this one. I’m well aware that there’s some weird things going on with my hand, if I’m being honest it looks a bit Simpsony. But I gave it a go, which is more than I can usually say when it comes to hands. If I can’t get away with not drawing them at all, then I like to just leave them as these strange triangle shapes that I like to think that if you look at them from a distance and squint then they look vaguely like hand. In my mind people don’t really need hands, I mean it’s not like we use them for anything important is it?
Today I decided to draw the bag that I was using which turned out to be way harder than I thought. Normally if I can’t see what I’m wearing to draw it easily I’ll get one of my sisters to take a photo and I’ll work from that, but the day I decide I want to draw something on my back no-one else is home. So today I worked from the reflection of a reflection. Not easy at all.
