Sketchbook - 2/26/09

Sketching things I saw out the window, trying to focus on drawing negative space.  I really need a lesson in proportion drawing.  I think that is coming soon.

Another study of negative space.  It takes a lot of concentration, especially on something like this where there are so many similar negative spaces.  Thanks again to Starbucks for hosting my drawing session!

I took a lesson on how to draw hands.

Step 1 - A loose, rough sketch to show the "movement" of the hand, the bends at the joints, the direction, the intention.
Step 2 - Loosely draw in cylinders, boxes and spheres to show the volume of the hand.
Step 3 & 4 - Use your pencil to "cite" the correct angles and proportions.

This is drawn from a statue, using these steps:
