Modified Contour Drawing of Hand

For this exercise I had to use a hand drawn on transparency from the last exercise, transfer it to paper and render it. I redrew a hand on the overhead transparency. Taped a piece of paper to a drawing board and with a ruler marked the dimensions of the transparency, including the horizontal and vertical lines. I toned the paper with a 4B graphite stick. I looked at the transparency and did a rough sketch of the hand onto paper. After the rough sketch was finished, I posed my hand in that position and drew it for the next hour and 20 minutes. I focused on the lines of my hand like I did for the pure contour drawing exercise.
