Ah, what would I give to be able to draw hands like you. Heck, just to draw like you. But definitely hands. Mine look like hot dog pieces stuck in an orange with toothpicks when I draw hands. Yours has power and perfect form.
Your drawing style is great! If you think it's far from perfect, it's definitely close to perfect. You're right though, if an artist isn't always trying to improve, then the only way they can go is down. I noticed your journal about Erin. I wish her profile was still activated to see her stuff. Unless I missed it since I was looking when I was tired.
*blush* I am FAR from where I want to be. I'm still learning a lot. But I do practice all the time. I'm kinda forced to with class and all. That's why there's been such a decline of work on the Cafe from me. Class keeps me hoppin'.
