As there seems to be quite a bit of artistic talent around here, I thought I would start a pencil sketch section .....

Did you know that rock wool was originally called slag wool and it was discovered by accident at a steel works where a fracured team pipe blew HP steam through molten slag. Some bright spark noticed the glass -like filaments and put two and two together. I always thought it was a tad less objectionable than glass fibre insulation.

Whoa! whoa!...I come on here looking for a bit of culture and artistic temprement and suddenly it's reading like SC, leave rockwool where it belongs..in a shut loft! The only saving feature of the last few posts is that you have lured Swifty..a stone carver no less, away from SC (I suspect) and onto the more refined pages of our daily magazine...Swifty, welcome, as an aspiring sculptor I have always wanted to know more about carving..but I would try potatoes for practice or even better turnips..larger so you can make more mistakes..and harder so a little more like stone!
PUT  SOME OF  YOUR STUFF ON HERE SWIFT...I'd love to see it.

TOM practice, as you have already advised, is the only way forward with hands.. I did a year or so on hands and feet, in my free time, mostly drawing my own as they were convenient. It is lovely to do and you will never again struggle with hands..the other thing to do is always remember a hand is a big as your face, if you don't believe me put yours up to your face..with the fingers spread open. It really helps to keep that in mind when drawing them.
