Hand Studies






These are a bunch of recent hand studies I've done. On the advice of Doug Tennapel, I warm up by drawing my own hands to tackle something difficult. And after getting comfortable, I invent my own hands.

Ernest and Harold - Model Sheets

A model sheet of Ernest, a "hip" old dude who's ten years behind the popular scene. He is never 
without his flip-phone.


Harold is a paranoid army veteran, who was shell-shocked from two foreign wars. He is never 
without his pistol.
