Gosh, Danielle, even you own hand is beautiful.  Yes, more tonal value is needed to make it even more realistic than it already is.

There's no way I will do my own short, stubby little fingers!

Ah! So that's the magic hand that makes marvelous drawings.  More tonal me thinks!  Good job!

Wow Danielle. . . .for a second I thought " what is a picture of my hand doing here". . . . .gosh but our hands look alike!!!! :heeha:
Yes, I think you need more contrast. . . go for the darks inside the curl of the fingers. . . . and I would use your artists licence to smooth out your thumb nail. . . now's your chance to have a lovely smooth perfectly manicured nail. . . . . . ;D  Otherwise, fabulous!!!!! :flowers: :flowers: :flowers:

Great job of your hand Danielle, its always good to put a face to the artist :2funny: . You have done a terrific job, its always more tricky when you leave the security of the lesson. I look forward to seeing the reviewed tonals, it doesn't need much work that's for sure :clap: :clap:.

Oh thanks guys. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the news letter, and my drawing was on there. Yes Nolan you have a pretty hand. No calluses on that hand.  :2funny: :2funny:
