Congrats! Just perused the website, love the gridpaper and taped corners. Nice touch.

Are you getting any further with your possible TV show?

Thanks Chris. The TV is still moving along, in contract negotiations, so it is getting very serious!

This was that link on the previous page for those that missed it:

the last bit was not directed at you... just throwing it out there for everyone.
I probably shouldn't be more specific, it might be against the forum rules.

Hey guys, does anyone know of any good books pertaining to human body proportions and especially hand proportions? I would like to become more comfortable with adding these into product and furniture sketches. ThAnks

I used David Finch's Gnomon video series on dynamic hand and feet drawing and it's definitely worth the money, really well done, clear instruction and tons of great narrated footage
