Just a simple idea. Tried to use a little motion blur to make it seem like the photo is taking during the act of sketching.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Initial impression: Made me smile with the hand drawing the camera and a picture being taken of the hand drawing the camera.

Technical: Like the execution here; the lighting is good, composition is made more interesting by the angles of the paper and the hand.

Artistic: I like the blurred hand, because I feel the pic would have looked too static otherwise. The orange of the pencil helps offset the blue of the camera body. There does seem to be a lot of white space at the lower right, though.

FWIW: I probably would have cropped in a bit more, or have the drawing closer to the spine of the sketchbook. In voting, I would give this a 6.

Feel free to PM me with any questions,

the motion-blurred hand is too distracting. i would have kept a more static pose...or at least held the bottom two fingers still while moving the pencil back and forth

i like how you captured the movement, very 1910s italian futurist.

man wish I could draw...you have a good idea and I like the hand motion it give you a feel that you are just madly drawing away...

Not a bad shot. I like the binding at the bottom left. I actually wish the hand was not blurred.

The image meets the subject matter effectively. A sound demonstration of the creative process in meeting the challenge in a very unusual way. A couple of minor detail problems as the image appears to be less than sharp as it should be - perhaps a higher shutter speed or a time lapse of the hand drawing would have been better. A good solid entry into the challenge.

nice action. might have been a bit more appealing without the brown space above and to the right of the hand. it distracts from the pristine feel of the paper
