Sequels are rarely better than the first.
This is a continuation of a competition hosted by :iconkryoshci: A traditional sketch competition lasting only a week so act fast before the DEADLINE this sunday 3/17 The rules are simple; illustrate a picture in PEN based on the given weekly subject. This weeks subject; emotional hands.
Taking one of struggling artist's greatest banes would be an interesting basis for aspiring artists in this sketch competition. And to do so with a show of emotion will make it all the more challenging considering there is no show of face to imply a defined emotion. No faces. No bodies. No arms, but forearms are fine. Try to imbue the hand(s) with emotion; i.e. a hand clenched tightly in righteous defiance, or clawing in the air desperately grasping for hope, or simply holding another in warm comfort.
Though it is a sketch, it is meant to be an imperfect design so a pen sketch would be best, apologies, no pencils. Since you cannot erase pen it would best befit the idea of the competition. If you need you can submit a sketch dump of pictures so long as it is all on a single page.
When submitting, it is important to keep anonymous so send a note only to the judges with a link to your submission via DA st.ash.
On monday, the judges will post a journal with anonymous links to the submissions, do not vote for your own and your votes will be kept hidden till the judges make the final call. Winner should be announced within the next few days.
The winner of this competition will decide the next topic for the following sketch competition and will be a judge rather than participant for their event.
SUBJECT: EXPRESSIVE HANDS
DEADLINE: Sunday 3/17
JUDGING: Monday 3/18
