Here are some pencil sketches, ostensibly meant for "The Anatomy Book Project." The biggest hand is the good one; I'm very marginal at hands, and can only produce worthy results after a great deal of application. I'm curious what you guys think of the style on the big one, which is a somewhat tonal approach crossed with a little linear flourish. I think the best part is the forearm/upper arm region, where I'm indicating the muscles very graphically (maybe I should say "linear-ly", if that's any sort of word). I am attracted to this because I like the shapes of the fingers in this flayed, corpse figure.
I did this study from a photo I took at the now-famous "Body Worlds" exhibit (still at the Science Museum in LA, by the Colisseum?). I'll post the photo reference, too.
I have a much more finished version of an arm up at the notorious EUROCHINO site, which you, dear fellow TAG-iste, are welcome to inspect.
