Thursday is the new Sunday – Human billboard

bo112005greatesttee__drop

The Sunday strip up on Gocomics.com today works pretty well – I like the layout and using no lines/just color for the background elements. But here’s a goof: the guy’s hand in the first panel looks like the thumb’s on the wrong side. This is something I drill into the heads of my students continually. And often times while drawing, I’ll look at my own hand as reference. In my defense, I don’t think I put the thumb on the wrong side; I think I screwed up the non-thumb side of the hand. I usual draw that side of the hand with the fingers curled up, almost like a fist. I’ll also draw the fleshy part of the heel of the hand. I think I got myself a little confused about how these two parts meet and the result was a mutant hand.

I’m fighting a bug and feeling out of it so I’m not sure if that made any sense. Please enjoy the drop panel above.

    Either that, or his fingers are curled around a really fleshy hand. :)

    A really, really fleshy hand.
