This PDF file contains 37 pages of hand sketches. 80% of the sketches are referenced from the book “Drawing Dynamic Hands” by Burne Hogarth, while the rest of the sketches are drawn from life or imagination.
In the case of the latter; it’s more visualizing than imagination. It’s an exercise I like to do when I read anatomy books. When I see an illustration of an interesting pose for certain part of the body, I like to draw it from another angle while visualizing it in my head as a 3d object rotating. It’s a really good exercise~
I drew most of the sketches in ballpoint pen and each sketch didn’t take more than 1-3 minutes. It’s important to keep in mind that while I’m drawing from reference, I don’t just copy. I keep thinking as I’m drawing of the mechanism and the movement along side the shape and contour of the part I’m drawing.
