let me give you a hand...and a hammer and a rabbit






I got back in to uni this week...a step closer to my double degree in art. The unit I am currently studying meant I needed to draw a couple of things...such as the hammer, rabbit and hand...the first assignment looks at associations of objects.
I won't share details because I am still working on this but I wanted to share my sketches with you. The rabbit is based on an early century etch...very simplistic.
The hammer is just a fantasy tool...I totally need this one in my kit!
The hand...the hand was a huge challenge for me and this is my very first attempt at drawing a hand...my hand! I am really pleased at how well it actually turned out.
It's good to put your fears behind you when it comes to art and just try...if it's crap...then try again.

Nice sketches! It is hard to get perspective right when we try to do our own body parts. I think you did very well! Are you left handed?

Your drawings are wonderful! You've inspired me to get out my sketch pad and start doodling. Drawing use to be my main art passion. Somehow it got tossed on the back burner and I need to get back into it. Thanks for all your encouragement and inspirations!
