Hand Sketch, Graphite
I will start another one today and hope to start with a very light line drawing to be sure the shapes are correct. I have a very heavy hand so this will take diligence to keep it light until the values are gradually shaded to create the form.
Last night I watched a hand tutorial at Drawing Tutorials Online and one of the things learned is that the first two phalanges (from the tip of the finger) equal the length of the third phalange. Hopefully, I learned a lot more as I also watched two portrait videosl. My thinking is that the more often I watch the videos, more information will sink in and, the more I practice, the more the information will be firmly embedded in my subconscious and the hand/eye coordination becomes more in sync.
