Haha, dude, it's completely fine. Yeah I noticed the pinky was way off. I think the reason why was because it was so foreshortened I forgot to close one eye and I got the double vision overlap, which looks super weird. That and I didn't really use a gesture to make sure everything made sense.
The other hand is okay with me because I have a serious hitch hiker's thumb. It goes back almost ninety degrees. Every time I look at it I think "Kapushwing!" Like a ricocheting bullet.
But thanks so much dude. All of this advice and encouragement is getting me really excited for the portfolio review this weekend. I'll also be attending the eight hour figure drawing workshop too, although Cornie won't be there. I'm going to go all out during that time with all the supplies I'm bringing, so expect tons of experimental fun stuff.
Yesterday I was stressing a lot with neo-pastels in the mall. It just didn't come right, and it was because of the paper, and the lack of an environment to clean my hands and switch to a different medium. It was messy and I had no real control to be loose, because I didn't want to break my super long sticks of them which I should have. I ended frustrated, and then drew some contour which also kind of sucked, and I thought I was having an off day. But then I thought that this is all for learning about myself, my limits and all, and I felt good about that, so I started doing gestures and practicing faces again.
I resorted to drawing around thirty heads in the outside mall I was in and a different mall yesterday. Maybe even more, and it was great fun, and I plan to work on it some more. It was all in the same paper.
My mom even gave me advice to draw bigger heads, which is great since she's throwing out new ideas for me to try! I've had a bad day, and I have school now, so I'll post my stuff once this day is over.
At one point of time or another, we all face a similar problem or obstacle. The main difference is how we face each ordeal and react to it from future memory, whether the experience be joyous or hurtful.
