So this here is a painting of my hand I did in my first year, this is the first time I've had a chance to scan it in. It's done with oils, and took a day a weekend I think, anyway I think it turned out ok needs more green and the shape got warped in the painting process but otherwise, I still like it over a year later.
This is a self portrait I did for my Principles of Drawing class, again from last year. Unfortunately the original is now framed behind glass so I couldn't take a photo, so all I have is this really bad copy from my e-mail. It's done with black and white conte on grey paper, and took able 8 hours spread over a weekend.
