My Left Hand

This is a live drawing of my left hand. I named it “My Left Hand”. Originally I intended to draw it with my left hand which kind of didn´t work because I wasn´t able to look at my left hand and perform the drawing at the same time. So I had to use my right hand. I used a Castel Pencil 9000 2H for it. I have to admit that I did some minor touch ups in Photoshop. I added a shadow to the hand to give it a more 3D-ish feeling. When I tried to apply the shadow next to the arm I didn't know how to do this because of the hair (Any comments?). I am quite happy with the result though. The clock represents our bodies' transitoriness. Life is not forever. We all know this but we never think of it. I got the inspiration for the drawing while listening to the soundtrack of “Letters from Iwo Jima” from Clint Eastwood (Track No 8, “Nearing the End”).

WOW, that was deep! Thanks for sharing the difficult, complicated progress and the hard choices you had to make to accomplish this masterpiece. :-)

Se aprecia perfectamente la intención de mezclar la masculinidad y la niñez en un solo dibujo. La sombra interrumpida y el reloj estan para mi claramente en harmonia con el concepto del paso del tiempo y el envejecimiento. Que a su vey construye un puente con el tema arriba mencionado.
Simplemente fantastico!!!
Sigue asi Sikander!

Hallo Leute!
Hier nochmal mein Komment auf deutsch! Wenn jemand an einer weiteren Übersetzung interessiert wäre, einfac sagen, ich mache es gerne! :) Viel Spaß beim lesen.

Man kann perfekt die Absicht des Autors erkennen, die Männlichkeit und die Kindheit in dieser Zeichnung zu kombinieren. Der unterbrochene Schatten und die Uhr sind für mich ganz und gar im Einklang mit dem Konzept der Zeit, des altwerden. Was wiederum sich mit dem ersten Konzept perfekt überbrücken lässt.
Einfach einzigartig!!!
Mach weiter so Sikander!

It's so nice for me to have found this blog of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blog is also so cool! Don't think for a minute that my invitation is spam and I'm a spammer. I'm only searching for a public that may like or love what I write.

Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs, all the essential causes that bring us all together by visiting and loving one another.

You must not feel obliged to come and visit me. An invitation is not an intimation. Also know that if you click on one of my ads I'm promised to earn 8 cents for that: I would feel happy if you did click it, but once again you're totaly free to do what ever you want. I, for instance, choose immediatly to click on one of your ads, in case you have them. To do so or not, that's the whole beauty of it all.

I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle but as a challenge (though you can use the translater BabelFish at the bottom of my page!) and think for a minute if I and the rest of the world are not expecting something like a broad cumplicity. Remenber that pictures talk also. Open your heart and come along!!!!!
