It is no secret that I am a fan of comics. I've been hooked since I was a kid, but only occasionally dable with the style. However, during one of my lunch breaks, I finished reading a Streets of Gotham and felt compelled to study Dustin Nguyen pencils.

I found this drawing interesting, and a little difficult since it is more simplistic. As with other comic/cartoonish studies, I found myself drawing a line just to erase and start over. Eventually, I just made the line, even if it isn't right and decided to concentrate on something even deeper into the image.

I honed in on the hand, drew it much larger than its original scale, and studied its qualities. Two things I learned with these drawings: I am a perfectionist and must quit fiddling to make a sketch perfect, and I need to draw at a larger scale.
