Handy Man

Posted early, blahblahblah:

My second entry for the Practice Makes Perfect Art Jam. The subject this time is "The Three Hands of the Dead":

Yeah, I know there are four hands there--out of all my sketches I was happy with four, so I figured I'd throw in the extra one. I had so much fun with my Sasquatch post, that I basically used the same technique again--sketched in purple pencil (Col-Erase is my brand of choice, in case you were wondering), and outlined with a hot pink Prismacolor marker (yes, the color was actually called hot pink) and an ultra-fine black Sharpie.

As for the hands themselves, I think I did an okay, if bland job of it. Check out the other entries at Practice Makes Perfect.

hot pink....


ANYWAYS, these are pretty good. not great, but good. I'd like to see u do more life drawing.

I'm a little shocked. With a name like The Three Hands of the Dead I would expect you to do a sketch of an undead monkey with three arms. A bit disappointed in that respect. Otherwise, good stuff here.

Very cool. I really like this style.

charles-- life drawing, bah! that's for arteests! i'm just a geek with an over-active wacom pad! in all seriousness, it's been a while since i've done any life drawing. i enjoy it, but it's tough to make the time.

patrick-- thanks dude!
