“Left Hand 2013” (#138: Project 365 Sketches)

Sketch Club app; iPhone.

2013, Sat 18 May. If last sketch was accurate enough, it seems my left hand has not changed much. Not that i expected it to. Well, perhaps the fingers have put on just a bit more meat. Though not by much. And for greater realism i worked in the fine hairs on the hand. Otherwise, my hand looked like the classical greek marble statue (which is nice too, in that illusory way). The last time I sketched my left hand was in 1990 (see https://myrightbrain.wordpress.com/2006/12/17/sketches-of-my-left-hand-1990). #365sketches [CC-BY]

Here’s the WIP version, where I thought it was finished but the Missus said the knuckles looked as if they were depressed rather than protruding. Hmm, it’s the lack of a darker shading to counter the highlights.
