Hand Drawing Time-Lapse

Drawing by Michael Newberry, showing the triangulation of the hand’s knuckle landmarks. Triangulation is a great technique which makes drawings in proportion, feel natural, and a special living beauty when all the points are lined up well. The start is beginning with two landmarks, then triangulating a third point, by observing the axis lines of the landmarks in real life. Then continue to add “third” landmarks until every important landmark is located.
