Since I don’t have time to keep up with my tictail for the moment I decided to open up my Society6 store once again! Uploaded some selected drawings from my sketchbook. These are the first prints I’ve made available. I will keep on updating the store as I make new drawings!
If you like any of them feel free to get yourself one!
Is there a print missing that you would like to see there?
So was this exercise over. 31 days of drawing hands. I must say that I kind of like drawing hands now. It feels like many artists all say “Hands are so difficult to draw”. I used to say that myself. But then I decided to change that. So instead of bitching about it, I just drew them instead.
My biggest mantra I will take with me from this is: Just because something is extremely difficult, it doesn’t mean you can’t get good or better at it. Spend more time doing it, than cave in for the fear of doing it and there will be progress.
I’m not saying I’m an expert at them. Far from it! But at least I think I’ve achieved what I wanted in the first place, to be able to say “Hands have gotten easier to draw”.
Today I finished the third week of drawing hands everyday in January. I must say I feel like I’m getting worse, but I can quicker visualize the hand in my head before I draw it. And it feels like I can draw it faster and more freely without being too locked to building blocks. And one thing I’ve started to realize is that I crave drawing characters!
For all you beautiful new people: During this month I’ve decided to challenge myself to focus on my biggest weakness in drawing: hands. So everyday in January I’ve promised myself to fill up a whole page per day consisting of hand drawings / studies.
