Topic: Hymnal Art
I try to use my own hands as a model (photos of them) when I need to draw specific poses. But sometimes it is just impossible to get the right angle and I have to go searching for photos online. Such was the case for these.
I ended up using two different models and drew them on scrap paper. Then they were out of scale with each other so I had to copy them in various percentages till I had a set that matched.
They were not properly aligned so I cut them apart and rotated the drawings until I liked the arrangemet and taped them together.
In the end, I didn't want to try to draw them again so I used my lightpad to trace them into my hymnal.
I used the refrain, written in italics below the verses, and highlighted a portion to tell the story.
I might use a thinner pen nib to do this in the future as it looks a bit clunky. I used markers for the coloring.
