This is an example of the third drawing stragety "Relations and Proportions". The hand was sketched by looking at my own hand and then putting that image onto paper. The goal was to make the hand and object look realistic. It would not have made sense if the hand was extra skinny and the white out in the palm being larger than my hand.
This drawing was one I performed on the very first day of into to art. I look back at it now and laugh because I had truly believed it was wonderful. But now, after learning the different techniques of art, I would not want to go back and continue doing art like this.
This is a drawing of myself I did three months after the very first sketch I did of myself. I am very proud of this piece because it looks similar to me and I spent quite some time on it.
