Juggling with a candle is a great idea... by PaniKing Juggling with a candle is a great idea... by PaniKing
This is a project I just drew for Art 15. It's my favorite so far, I love how well it turned out.

The candle is supposed to be darker than the hands, but it's not so dark in person (I enhanced it a little for clarity). Not the greatest picture, because I took it with my phone. Too big to scan, like 18" by 22" or something big like that.

And finally, yes, that is a candle. It's an oil candle.

Thanks for the indirect compliment .D. xD
Seriously though when we were assigned this I never thought I would be able to do it this well lol It really helps to take pictures and work from those (instead of looking in a mirror or something)

Haha you're welcome! I commented before realizing I just left that hanging statement. .-.
I hate drawing hands, but they are the part of anatomy of I want to draw well the most. :T I should start taking pictures, because, like you said, looking from mirrors doesn't really help my cause. XD

xD No problema~
Yeah, it really helps. Other than that, it just takes a ton of practice. >^< It helps to not think about drawing a hand, but just drawing the shapes and shadows as you see them... If that makes sense, it doesn't to a lot of people xD

I totally get what you mean, actually. XD
I haven't bothered to draw by solely looking at the shapes, but it doesn't hurt to try! C:

I don't know if it'll be easy or hard for you, but it certainly helps me. <3
