The 50 Foot / 50 Hand Challenge! CLOSED!

The 50 Foot / 50 Hand Challenge! CLOSED!

THIS CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED! But feel free to do it just for fun/improvement! This was a drawing challenge from `SenshiStock (https://www.deviantart.com/senshistock) and :iconmostlyguystock:! Hands and feet are pretty hard to draw. Lots of artists struggle with them! Even when other things come naturally, hands and feet can still be quite a problem. The best way to get better at drawing hands and feet is to study them! The Challenge: Sketch or draw 50 feet AND 50 hands from reference photos or life. Deadline: The deadline has passed for this challenge, but you can still participate and make yourself a better artist! You can post them as one giant post, in groups, one at a

My Bio
My love of all things historical (particularly Renaissance) led me to making chainmaille, and that led me to wire sculpting. Since I have to try everything that catches my fancy I do a little of this and a little of that, too (currently playing with oil painting). I sell on Etsy and Artfire, at craft shows, comic/anime/gaming conventions and Renaissance faires, and at a local artisan Gallery. Love custom requests, so if you want something made please ask :)

My other love is animals (especially horses), and I have an Arabian and a Mustang, with a houseful of other furry things. At home you can usually find me either at the computer, making something, or on the couch with a pile of critters surrounding me. Hoping to have a little farm some day.

Current Residence: Tennessee
Favourite genre of music: Celtic, if I had to pick one.
Favourite photographer: The one that makes me see something differently.
Operating System: This is such a nonartistic question.
MP3 player of choice: My iPhone <3
Favourite cartoon character: Marvin Martian.
Personal Quote: All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness.
