Drawing Hands & Feet: Techniques for mastering realistic hands and feet in graphite, charcoal, and Conte - 50+ Professional Artist Tips and Techniques
Drawing realistic hands and feet in graphite pencil is a challenging subject for most beginners. With Drawing Hands & Feet, follow along as you study the common forms of the fingers and toes and learn to create and meld basic shapes to build realistic final art. Discover how light and shadow play an important part in creating muscle definition, expression, and realism. Understand the effect of perspective when choosing and rendering a pose. Drawing Hands & Feet encourages artists to master the individual parts of the form—the pose, structure, values, and shading—before approaching the composition as a whole.
More than a basic step-by-step drawing guide, the Success in Art series focuses on subject matter that is often challenging for artists, regardless of skill level. From highly foundational art concepts, such as proportion and perspective, light and shadow, and composition to mastering textures and the human figure, Success in Art covers difficult subject matter in an approachable way using easy-to-grasp techniques and step-by-step exercises.
