DOODLE DAY MAY - Day 11

Welcome do Doodle Day May's 11th day of drawing fun! If you are new to the group, check us out on Facebook HERE. If you want to learn more about this Doodle Challenge for the month of May - click on the original post HERE.

In honor of this weekend being spring, gardening, cleaning, organizing, and Mother's Day.

Today's prompt is Give Me a Hand.

Draw One Hand.

You can draw a child's hand, an adult hand, or even an animal paw. Any hand. You can have it holding something or doing something. I know ASL so I enjoy drawing hands that are saying something. Your hand can be attached to a person but it does not need to be. Don't overthink it. Don't worry about perfection. Go with a Michelangelo loose style or trace your hand or your child's hand or try for a tighter line. Draw a cartoon style hand or a hand with a glove on it. You can trace your hand and turn it into something or fill it with Zentangles. This prompt has no limit. Have fun with it.

Things to think about when drawing hands:
Proportions
Position
Knuckles
Nails
Children's fingers are much shorter than adult fingers compared to the size of the palm

Here is some of my favorite hand reference info:



 
 

Okay?
 
Have fun!
