Second batch in chronological order, u can clearly see the change in approach and the removal of rendering as time goes on bc I realised that was the only way I was gonna get this done 😂 from the first set of hands which took about 12 minutes a pop, the end of this batch was probably at about 5 minutes each, so no real speedup as much as just getting down the lines and moving on. The next batch chronologically gradually from 5 mins to 2-3 mins per hand which was nice (and made it possible to finish) when I did 30-50 the first 5 days and had to do 120 each the last two days 😂😂 anyway here, 1/2
FINAL DAY of the #500handschallenge !
From this batch I liked 495 the most. A cute paw powse. 🐾🐈
Over time I grew really tired of drawing hands for hours and hours on end but I'm still glad I did this challenge.
I've never been good at drawing hands and would always just kind of leave them as blocks in my sketches but doing this challenge has definitely made me improve at drawing them and get more comfortable drawing things I might not be so good at.
Thanks to @ahmedaldoori_art for creating the challenge and making me both suffer and grow as an artist.🙃 #sketch#500hands#hands#sketches#practice#improvement#digitalsketch#challenge
I accidentally deleted my post once cuz of my phone overheating and lagging a ton so posting again, lol. Why is the delete button directly below the edit button??

Day 6 of #500handschallenge . What happened to day 5 you say?
Day 5 doesn't exist. Thursday doesn't exist. Nope.
Also, it's totally Friday and not Saturday. Yup, I'm posting this on the day I drew them. Not a day after because I drew 144 hands in one day which took me until 3am and then I was too tired to compile them to post. Nope. I totally... drew this today and uh... it's Friday, yup.
Some of the hands are really messy cuz I realized that if I take 3-5 minutes per hand I'm never going to finish.
Only 70 more to go! 😍
Day 3 of the 500 hands challenge! I'm only uploading the sketches now on the next day because I was too tired to finish yesterday and finished this morning. I'm still caught up though, so as long as I can manage to draw at least another 72 hands today I should be fine 😅
This challenge has turned out to be way more time consuming than I first thought it would be and with school it's difficult to finish them on time everyday. I'm determined to complete the challenge though so hopefully I'll have the hands for today done before tomorrow 😂
A few illustrators I follow on instagram have been doing this #500handschallenge challenge where they try to draw 500 hands in 7 days. Hot Jeebus, that’s 70 hands a day. Damn, I don’t have time for that! But I want to improve my hand drawing, and think i could do it in a month- by the end of March. Ok, lets do this.
Drawing hands is the eating cold canned spinach of drawing. It’s good for you but kinda makes you gag, and it’s hard to get excited about. It’s such a cliche that artists find drawing hands hard and go to great lengths in order do hide our lack of ability to draw them well, them but it’s true. .
Hands be hard and pockets exist...but
Hands are as expressive of character and emotion as the face. Neglecting drawing hands would be like not learning to draw faces. The problem is there is a million billion ways to make them look knarled and broken and fucked up and maybe only a few hundred ways to draw them right. .
My goal isn’t just to draw ‘correct’ hands but to draw correct hands that show personality and emotion. To learn the rules to be able to break them. I want to do a bunch of master studies and learn from the greats.
Milt Kahl I’m coming for ya hands!

Day two of #500hands challange! Most of them were digital today but also some drawn with a mechanical pencil and then I also tried to draw some with a brush pen. I'm horrible at using brush pens though so they turned out bad. Last 20 or so were pretty bad cuz I'm super tired.
Time to sleep.
Bad hand day so not gonna force it too much. Don't know why drawing digitally takes so much more time for me. Usually 10 minutes for one hand which is insanely slow. Probably that's my pace and should learn to live with it.
#500handschallenge 405/500 with some Jimi Hendrix and Angus Young hands.
Had a busy week when preparing for last Sunday’s workshop. Thank you to all who signed up and participated. I hope whatever I said made sense. I’m still learning to teach better. Also, still binging on Fallout 4.
