This I drew from observation. Well, just the hand part of the picture. I find that the technique of modified contour line drawing my art teacher has taught me to be quite useful when I want to draw my hand. Thanks Mrs. Palmer! Hehe, drawing HANDS, Mrs. PALMer... Anyway... I drew it around October, so I guess its a Halloween type picture. This one I tried using layers of colors and the airbrush tool to get the shading on this one the way it is. I'm pretty fond of the way it turned out as opposed to the other ones I've shaded in on the computer. As usual, I value your input.

:-) Tyler Garrabrant replies: "Thank you! I'm not the best in large area detailing like in the background of this picture, but I'm working on it. Thanks for the comment Caj."

:-) Tyler Garrabrant replies: "Well, I guess it could be blue if it was burried somewhere cold... ^_^"

WOW... I must say i like this one a lot. I hate drawing hands 'cause they are so hard but you make it look easy...

p.s. My stuff is uploaded

:-) Tyler Garrabrant replies: "Trust me Kevin, hands still give me a bit of trouble. Really the only time they ever turn out the way I like them is when I do a hand study like this. And I saw your work! Its great!"

Haaa, I see you got updatiez! And you didn't tell me anything!* moves with eyebrow*...how tragic =P...well, I must say I'm impressed! didn't think you're that good already! vewwy nice, and this time you gave it some shading! Yay!..but hey, this is haunting me! I bet this is the undead pet arm I got under my bed! Some other people did also draw it! hmmm...that's weird...heheh. I think green suits it pretty well...like some moldy, rottening flesh *sniffs*...ahh that's always nice! oh god, Katja be a weird child...sorry I got fever, there´fore all the strange thing i babble about...geez...

:-) Tyler Garrabrant replies: "What?! I forgot to add you the update list? Aw, I'll fix that immediately... All done. ^_^ I'm surprised at this one too. I never thought I was that good either, then I made a awesome moldy hand! But that's not all! I've recently done a skull study, and its got much shading!!! I feel gifted and special! ^_^"

This really kicks! I love the thumbnail--great attention to detail. I like the green, too...the first thing I thought of was mold. I would love to see the one you said had bugs all over it...I used to draw creepy stuff all over my homework, too (no doubt that is why all my teachers thought me demented), and that sounds like it made a cool pic. Keep it up!

:-) Tyler Garrabrant replies: "Thanks! The way I drew this I basically used the modified contour line drawing method my highschool art teacher taught me. You focus on the lines only, because you can always go back later and shade it. It gets more detail that way. I would've uploaded my other hand pic too, but it was on lined paper. ~_~"

Do upload the skull study, please ^___^

:-) Tyler Garrabrant replies: "Will do! Maybe expect it to be uploaded in a couple weeks? I hope..."

This reminds me of a glove my dad and I once found on the beach, we stuffed it with sand and put it in the position like this hand. We had a really good laugh about it! *G* Cool pic 1 nice shading.

:-) Tyler Garrabrant replies: "hehe, that sounds like something I would do. And thank you for the compliments. This was my first real attempt at shading with a computer."
