OK thats my hand, and my drawings. The drawings on the left are old, the naked one, is just something I did quickly last night so I would have a enough to scatter.

I desaturated all the color, making the image b&w, as well as playing with contrast (adding some) and darkening the brightness. Next I actually readded color with the curve. I know I could have desaturated most of color and played with hue to get a similar effect, but I had my reasons lol The photo is probably a little wasked out, and this technique improved on that slightly, while the other didn't. Next i used neat image, then sharpened. Cropped, added border, and there ya go.

Nice sepia tones. I would have liked to see more natural texture in the hand, but I like it very much.

Very interesting! I like the use of a sepia-tone and the composition here. Having a drawn hand and a real hand really adds something to the photo. Nice job!

The sepia creates a nice, soft tone.

very good, a hand drawing a hand. A slightly more simple composition (some less pencils, remove the pad from underneath the hand), would have further strengthened the image in my opinion. 7

Pretty good... what would have been better is the drawing being a sketch of your real hand holding the pencil. That would be GREAT. Good job.

How odd.. and picture of a hand drawing a hand. Maybe you could do one of a hand drawing a hand drawing a hand drawing a hand, and so on

I like how the whole thing is in skin tone.

This is a fantastic composition but over reduction of noise / smart blur gives the hand a plastic look also the edges of the pencils show jaggedness - would like to see outtakes

this gets cluttered to my eye - the pencil on the right seems redundant and the shadow below the hand detracts
