My Favorite Scene/book and Doodling hands

I don't have a video for My Favorite Scene today. I had a bleeping cold sore on my nose, of all things for a week and, at one point, I couldn't look in the mirror without doing a W.D. Fields impersonation ("my little chickadee") or singing "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer," so video recording myself was out of the question.

But, I thought maybe I could change it to book and combine it with some Doodle Day sketches.

I've not kept up with Doodle Day over at Facebook very much, but when a 5-day hands prompts came up, I had to do it because hands are some of my favorite things to sketch. I used to do it often while trying to stay awake in classes at university.

These were quick sketches done between two to five minutes.

 Have you tried sketching hands before? To learn how, I'd like to recommend this little gem of a book on learning to sketch people (hands and feet included):
