Hand Study

02 Feb 2010

My German Friend Hans

I decided it would be good to practice this new illustration technique with a smaller target. I snapped a few photos of my hand that I could use,

Hand 1 Hand 2 Hand 3

I opened the photos in Illustrator and started to work.

I created the usual layers I would usually create and began to work.

This image however wasn't really working very well, so I decided to switch to one of the others. I'm not sure what was wrong with it exactly but I kept having to change what I'd done and I wasn't getting the look I wanted.
