Samples of Hand sketches

Here are several examples of what I hope you'll do for your hand sketches. The first few at the top are perfect for this assignment and the last couple are examples of M. C. Escher's work. You'll have an automatic A for the year if you can create something as detailed and well rendered as Escher's examples. The best way to start your hand sketches is to do a very light outline. This outline should only be basic geometric shapes - don't worry about outlining wrinkles and fingernails because those details should be worked on lastly. Once you outline the general shape of your hand you can begin to fill in shadows and midtones. Save the smallest details for last. TIP: you can erase graphite in your sketch to create highlights. Try it - Mr. Kelley
