Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of January we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 195 people to reach our January goal of 3,000 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in February!

I like it but...

1] Change the thumbnail that we see in the art portal. It looks a bit like something rated A.
2]The fingers appear to be a bit stubby. If I were to extend those fingers, the ratio of lenths between fingers would be off.
3] I understand that hands have wrinkles when they're in that postion. But unless your an 80 year old man, not that many wrinkles. Try to just make the smaller wrinkles less noticalbe and not so bold.
5] Everything else I didn't mention is completely fine
6] about 80% of the people reading this will not notice that I skipped the number four in the list.
3/5, 8/10, and I must say, you are pretty handy with your drawings.
Get it? Handy?

HybridMind responds:

Well I wasn't doing anything intentional with the thumbnail. I think the whole drawing is a tad vertically squashed from how my hand is in real life. The issue making the fingers look stumpy has more to do with the difficult foreshortened angle of the fingers holding the fork. If I had done the lighting/shading better it would help make it look more correct.

You are actually totally wrong about the wrinkles on my hand though. I'm 36 but I've always had incredibly wrinkly hands of an 80 year old. If I were being accurate I actually would have drawn far more wrinkles than I have even indicated. Strange huh? That's the body for ya. If I didn't think it would be borderline creepy I'd send you a photo of my hand to prove it. But that would be fucking weird.

Thanks for leaving your feedback. Far more constructive than anything I've received here before, so props for that!

EDIT: Hey, thanks for the private message. We're cool.
