This is me focusing on Structure

Well, I hate to say it, but the class is actually called head, HANDS and feet, so last night was mostly about hands. Last night seemed like such a clusterf*ck for Karl. People kept interrupting him or the drawing session to ask questions about hands. I'll admit hands are intimidating, but in some sense I feel like no amount of talking makes it any easier, at least for me. I think just like anything else you have to throw yourself into it and just do it, and the more hands you draw, the easier it will be... I realized hands are just like bodies in that they  have a gesture to them. They're just like heads in that they have an underlying structure. In my humble opinion, if you can combine those two things while you're drawing, its a bit easier to wrap your head around it.

We had Keith last night. He's great.
