I spy


What’s wrong with this drawing? While you ponder that, let me explain.

This is a sketch for the children’s archeology magazine, Dig, and the illustration is of a very old story about two brothers. As you can see, the one on top is pleading with the other.

And that is the problem: the brother is pleading with the palms of his hand facing up, so the thumbs should be in the outside of the hands, not the inside. I didn’t catch this until I had already inked one hand in the final drawing.
