First proof


Here's the first proof, hand-rubbed with a wooden spoon. I'm quite pleased with it, but I am going to lighten the little finger slightly, as it's starting to merge with the background.

Ooh, yes, you are right about lightening the little finger a tad, but I love the strong light and how you've achieved it with the cuts.

I agree about the little finger, but it looks great I love the textures that make the form.

That's a really well-realised hand... hope to see the final version soon once you're happy with that little finger.

This is great, although I agree about the little finger. Once that's sorted it will be perfect. Make sure you show us the final.

I hope to finish the little finger today sometime and proof it tomorrow. (little) fingers crossed!
