As you've likely already figured out, whatever it is I'm sharing has no hands. This is my first post, and as such, I felt the need to share my favorite piece rather than my best.

Unfortunately, as much as I really enjoyed drawing Fire Emblem's Lucina, I am incapable of drawing hands. (Something I plan to do at least a full day of practice on as soon as my day off rolls in.) Regardless, I'm excited to have found a community of fellow artists and hope that in sharing my own art, I can become better, inspire someone else, and make a few new friends!

Finally, I present one of my favorite pieces, and will soon share even more as I find my way around!

Have you ever asked yourself why you're "incapable of drawing hands"?

Personally, I've only tried drawing hands a few times, so I've always considered it to be because of my lack of practice, and of course, my stubborn nature that refuses to ask for help and tips. So on my day off (tomorrow) I plan to spend at least half of it practicing my bowing for violin and the other half cranking out hands. Practice makes improvement, and perfect practice makes perfect. I aim to achieve at least one of those, if not both.
