Topic for 7/11 to 7/17

Hey, Anthdrawlogians!  (Anthdrawlogeeks?  Anthdraughtsmen?  What do we call ourselves, anyway?)  This week's topic is...


We've all got 'em, so why are they so challenging to draw? Maybe this will be a cake walk for some of you, but personally, I struggle with hands.

For extra credit, try to show some emotion.  Hands can be incredibly expressive!  And as always, try to tell a story with your picture.

Here's a bit of inspiration to get you started:

Toby Shelton - I've Got To Hand It To You (2010)
Preson Blair - Cartoon Animation (see pp. 28-30)
Stephen Gilpin - Pencil Miles (hands1, hands2)
Flip - Hands

Good luck, everyone!

I have been calling us Anthdrawlogists. Makes us sound very scientific :)

Thanks for the Hand website references and good call on the topic.

I like both Anthdrawlogians and Anthdrawlogists.

Cool topic. I like the fancy ones (board games) because they let me be fancy, but I like the simple ones because they make me focus on the basics. Fun!

Although I'm seriously thinking about drawing a hand flipping the bird. The only thing stopping me is I have to show it to my wife ;-)

Mandy - I like it!

Adam - never occurred to me! I must be getting old.

I think at one time I referred to us as "Anthdrawlolololos" but I was also watching the video of that Trolololo that might not be the most accurate moniker. I agree with Mandy, Anthdrawlogists sounds scientific!

And great links! I'm excited to see what we all come up with.
