Fair Hand by k-hallowseve Fair Hand by k-hallowseve
This is one that I drew for the Alaska State Fair a couple years ago, before I moved to NC. It didn't win anything, that was to be expected, and there was a lot of great stuff there. I did notice that the large and professionally framed objects were picked over others. There were some that were better than the winners, but so small they were eclipsed by the larger ones.

Since the fair, this pic has been shaded and cleaned up (it was very sketchy before). Hopefully it looks better. I may edit it more later, but for now it's okay.

Hands are always hit or miss for me. Sometimes they look fine, and sometimes I can't get them to look right. Thanks for the compliments. :)

It looks beautiful!
I really really like it :3
You're doing brilliantly with the shading so far, let's see some real contrast between darks and lights though K-hallowseve >:3

Yeah, I know I have to finish... I shoulda put it in scraps... 'cept no one ever looks at the scraps (though you find some great stuff in a person's scrap pile).

It may be a little while; shading takes time for me (it's that left-handed curse, I swear; smudges everything). Thanks for the tip. :)

Hah, I often find scraps to be more impressive than the final piece itself :3 maybe because you can still see what the artist is/was thinking whilst drawing it, and the mistakes they have made and crossed out. It just seems to be that those pieces are more *alive* than the carefully handcrafted final pieces. More *human* shall I say.

..

No need to back away now ! xD

And hey, Apparently, left handed people ae the geniuses of this world =3

*agrees* 'tis more honest when less polished, I sometimes see. It's too easy to lose the concept when you spend too mush time buffing things out. It can become more of an ad poster and less of an artpiece, if not done right.

I may tweak it more. I'd like to really, really shade it.
