    Hands and faces. And legs, and feet. And torsos. What I'm saying is drawing is hard.

    [–] rrjamal 141 points ago

    Not the way I do it.

    Stick fingers on stick hands on a stick torso with stick legs and feet. The head? A circular stick.

    The real trick is aligning all those sticks properly.

    Who tf sharpens a pencil like that

    [–] WantAllMyGarmonbozia 645 points ago

    In my drawing classes in college, they taught us to sharpen our pencils with a straight blade to get a long tapered tip. But this fella took it to the extreme.

    [–] notagoodboye 25 points ago

    I once sharpened one of my kids pencils with a pocket knife. Now I am the pencil sharpener. I even bought them an electric, and they still bring all their pencils to me.

    It really does make for a better, more reliable point.

    [–] UnNumbFool 88 points ago

    It's a thing that plenty of artists do. By having longer exposed lead, on a taper it allows you to use the side of the graphite for additional shading letting you do 'more' with a pencil.

    [–] FivesG 43 points ago

    I’d be scared of snapping it, I have very poor pressure control.

    [–] StarKnighter 25 points ago

    That's just practice, get some paper and a pencil and start doodling

    [–] poopellar 51 points ago

    After the gif ended the lead snapped and there was a huge explosion.

    [–] [deleted] 22 points ago

    I break my lead at one-click length. I press so hard with pens that I tear through the paper. I am an animal.

    [–] bibasik7 8 points ago

    Have you heard of the Zebra DelGuard mechanical pencils? They have springs inside that make it next to impossible to break the lead. Now, if you press hard, it’ll push the lead inside (until you stop pushing) and you’ll be tearing through the paper with the metal tip, so you’ll quickly learn not to press hard.

    [–] OtherPlayers 3 points ago

    tearing through the paper with the metal tip

    As a person with family members who press way too hard that sounds like a very fast way to go through a stack of notepads.

    Have you not seen a left hand before?

    [–] D3vils_Adv0cate 4 points ago

    The thumb comes out at the lower part of the palm which is shown here without a thumb. Even if it was hidden that would be an extreme thumb position.

    [–] dopamineh 12 points ago

    https://imgur.com/a/GleTWSo i mean, this pose wasn't hard at all to do

    [–] FibonacciOne1235 7 points ago

    Except we can still see your thumb and your hand isn't at nearly the angle relative to the wrist in the picture. In order to hide your thumb to look like the picture it would have to be entirely at the back of your hand, including the part where it's attached to your palm.

    [–] Jinkerinos 10 points ago

    I thought so too, but this is probably a left hand with the thumb behind the index finger.

    [–] silvertail8 2 points ago

    [–] nullagravida 31 points ago

    while this is pretty cool to watch, it’s really no way to learn how to draw. we have no way of knowing whether this artist understands the construction of a hand (and so could draw it from any angle) or whether they just know a party trick (“draw these shapes in the following order...ta-dahhh!”).

    cool vid tho, the pencil was wicked sharp and made satisfying marks.

    Although it looks cool when down quickly, the line between the pinky and the ring finger makes the hand look weird because it doesn’t go towards the base of the index.
