    So yes, to clarify, this is very much a work in progress. I realized while watching your introductory videos that I had never made the distinction between practice pieces and finished pieces, and have done all my learning ON finished pieces. So when I come up against fundamental gaps in my skills, I get stuck. It’s not like I can just flip the page and try again! Instead I just struggle in the morass of the problem area, feel unable to move forward, and lose momentum and enthusiasm for the image as a whole.
    So thanks for having made me a better artist already in the hour since I joined your site- I have learned the novel concept of “practicing” ☺️🙏

    Sorry, I keep forgetting the main point, and the reason I started looking for drawing lessons in the first place- My thought was that if I had better fundamentals, I would be able to rework the hand from imagination/learned skills, rather than just copying the hand in the reference. With enough brute force copying, I can make it look like the reference, but that’s not the hand that I want! So yeah, I’m excited to learn all the skills I didn’t know I needed to know, and maybe get a better hand in the bargain 😉
    Thank you!
