Hello, and happy weekend!

As most or all of you know, I work in both traditional media (pencil, ink, watercolor, acrylic and mixed media) as well as digitally, including Photoshop on my PC, and Procreate on my iPad Pro. Although I like both, there is one advantage to digital which I highlight in the drawing in this post. This was a sketch I did starting with pencil, then inking, followed by a lovely watercolor shading. Do you see anything wrong with it?

Yup, that’s right: Claudia fails basic anatomy in this case.

Hands do not bend that way.

Hours of hard work ruined.

Or maybe not.

This can be fixed in Photoshop with just a few simple steps – see my timelapse video:

And in the end you get an anatomically – almost – perfect drawing as seen below 🙂
