After suffering with an aching hand in the last one, I chose a nice relaxed positionfor this one, resting against my little pot belly (it was drawn in a nearly full-lengthmirror, standing up). This is one of my favourites of the hand drawings, because I successfullysaw the main shapes, didn’t get drawn into detail too early.
Although I’m still on my line only diet, that doesn’t mean I can’t show where the tone would be.I put in the broken line across the knuckles to show the division between the light plane of theback of the hand and the fingers in shadow. Although it’s not showing tone, it does infer thatthere’s a change in the direction of the planes there.
