Drawing Class Assignment 1 - hands and object by KicsterAsh Drawing Class Assignment 1 - hands and object by KicsterAsh
This was a drawing assignment from a few weeks ago. Hands and an object had to be used. Wanted to post this to show I can still draw more than just cartoons.

I was thinking of Saint Thérèse when I drew this, how she's known to being the Little Rose. If you do a novena to her, your prayer is answered in th form of a rose, whether it be given anonymously, by someone you know unexpectedly or by just seeing one. Whether you believe this or not is your choice. She's my patron saint since birth and I believe it. Has happened on numerous occasions.

Please no critiques. I already got one from my instructor, so I know where I can improve.

Very well done ! The shading is perfect, Looks to me like there's a bright light source the hands are hovering over, like the sun or a star or maybe like a heavenly halo type thing, I dunno, I just really like the effect ahaha. And the rose too, blended very well, very pretty :) .

I swear, I've always loved these kinds of pics...the ones that utilize heavy shading and are pictures of simple things like roses, hands, simple toys, etc. Great job yet again, Ash. :huggle:

I love Saint Therese! There was this one story my Theology teacher told us back when I was in fifth grade, I barely remember it, but I'm pretty sure she was praying for something and the next day she was walking by and some loose rose petals blew past in the wind, and she felt calm. I don't remember, it was one of my teachers who had an experience like this I just don't remember who :XD:
