Help with a belly pic

Post by billiebcc on Sat May 12, 2012 8:09 pm

A close friend of mine who has lost several babies has offered to be my first belly bump. While not being demanding she did ask if I could paint this on her:
I did find a colored pic of it somwhere on line but I'm struggling with the hands. The baby is no problem, but my hands look cartoonish.
Can you point me anywhere?

Dear billiebcc:
I am a trained portrait artist. Hands and faces are deliciously like dessert for me. I adore the challenge. Here is my handy helpful hand hint:

When drawing hands, draw the "mitten" shape of the hand first, then "carve the four fingers into the mitten shape. Sometimes when we draw hands, if we draw the fingers first, we create "sausage" fingers. Your drawing will be so much more graceful if you begin with the outer mitten shape, first.
My FaceBook has some of my portraits on it. My name is Lisa Leyes. I will gladly accept you as a friend. If you have any more questions....just ask! I may not be able to answer your question. I will bet my bippy that there will always be someone on this Forum who can help you.
Happy Hand Painting!
