drawing of the day - "thumb (cross-hatch "

thumb_cross, originally uploaded by Paul Rodecker.

I just found this drawing. I had totally forgotten about it. Now, I can remember drawing it very well. I was trying to get the thumb to seem as if it was emerging from the cross-hatching. I think that goal was accomplished successfully.

I should have extended the cross-hatching further back to the edge of the page. This is also one of the few drawings that I include shadows / cast shadows.
