Fixing Past Mistakes

Well, not so much mistakes as areas I thought I could do a better job on... The three figures in Conversation have always bothered me. The woman's arm just looked wrong; the hand on the man on the left always strikes me as having more fingers than it should (though it doesn't), and the waiter in the background should have the folds and shadows on his shirt finished in a more believable way.

This morning I redrew the arm holding the cell phone. It's not done yet, but at least it looks better. I think originally the arm was just too long. Sorry for the glare— it's another dank dismal day and I had to go with the room lighting.

Next I refined the details on the camera— but now it looks like the lens is coming out of the camera body on an angle! This is what happens when I listen to the news while painting.

I worked on this one, as well. And again, one of the limbs was drawn too long, in this case, the leg.
