How about the earth...

How about the earth...

Earth in Hands

"Last time you drew the whole solar system, but not just the earth," he reminded me.

Of course he didn't pick just the earth. He picked this image of hands holding the earth. Hands are notoriously difficult to draw well. I wasn't looking forward to the challenge, but I put the necessary time into this one.

The earth in this realistic view was also difficult for me to capture given the swirls of clouds that make up most of its surface. Yet, when I look at this sack my eyes are drawn to the fingers and hardly notice or care that it doesn't much look like the earth at all.
