Bone structure and proportions of the hand There is a very easy and surprisingly accurate way to remember the proportions of an adult's hand. The palm of the hand houses the metacarpal bones. The palm of the hand can be simplified to a box. Figure 2.21. Notice that the box does not line up with the contour of the fingers. The two black arrows in the previous figure show how the little finger can move up and down. Figure 2.22. Take a look at some examples of how to use this model: Figure 2.23. The first one is a relaxed pose. This is certainly not the only way to draw a hand.

Its Convenient Today but is it Right for Tomorrow? - Recyclebank I found myself deliberating my frequent purchase of applesauce in those individual plastic cups versus a large glass jar. What's the right thing to do? I recently ran across a quote somewhere and I don’t remember by whom, but it was something to the effect that we often forget what is right by what is convenient or what is right is often forgotten by what is convenient. I don’t think it was written with the environment in mind, however, I think some eco-truths are spoken here. I reflected back on this thought as I analyzed the snack food aisle at the grocery store the other day. The truth of the matter is that most of us are immigrants to this world of sustainability and environmental awareness whereas our children will be natives. Convenient today…but what about tomorrow? I don't think it's one I want to leave behind. Jeanne Blaisdell also publishes The Green Samaritan, her personal blog encouraging kindness to the environment through refined, renewed and resourceful living.
