Hands Week 1

So this week i have mainly been drawing hands and having hands on my mind constantly! Haha.

Here are some of which i have drawn so far. My plan (hopefully) is to keep on drawing hands until i reach a stage of which I'm happy to move on to full body expressions (with the use of hands ofcourse)

I do realise that the first load look pretty terrible but hopefully my skills will improve through the weeks!...

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

I recently purchased this game (on friday) and have just completed it! I can easily say that this is the best looking game I have ever played! The graphics are just phenomenal! from epic landscapes to the smallest details.

The story is very much inspired by Tomb Raider or Indiana Jones in the way of searching for a rare item (for this instance the Gintomani Stone) and to find this object Nathan Drake (the main character) is sent on a epic adventure, areas ranging from a destroyed city to a train shoot out.

The cinematics are also truely amazing and very close to that of big budge film productions, the voice actors are spot on and instantly draw you into their world.

Another area i am amazed by is the quality level of the animations even when you control the character he feels real, he has faults (trips over, accidentally slides and sometimes does a bad jump) just in terms of animation its far far beyond any game i have ever played.

If you own a PS3 and haven't got this game then GET IT because to me this is the best game on PS3!

Hands Research (Cartoons)

One of my main difficulties in drawing is in the structure of hands and how they should be used in a characters full body expression. I'm now going to explore the human hand, looking at all types of hand references such as cartoon, sketches, real life and 3D models.
