I may need to work on my quality control here. I know I’ve accused some of my previous hand sketches of being strange looking … but that was before I saw this one. I think this one definitely takes the cake. I tried to fix it. Really, I did. I just couldn’t get it to look right. I suppose I’ll just have to come back to this pose another time.
There was just something about how my fingers were arranged for this one that I couldn’t quite capture. I think some of the proportions are probably off but mostly it’s the arrangement of the fingers and thumb that are the problem. I think this is one of those cases where how something looks like it is and how it actually is are just two completely different things.
Oh well. I suppose it’s still at least vaguely recognizable. Hopefully I’ve learned a little bit from it and the next one will come out better. I’m going to be optimistic here and not assume that my hand drawing skills are just deteriorating.
