Lost to them

Idk man, hands. I just like drawing hoards of hands, yo. I'm not even that good at hands, the best compliment I ever got on hands was that they were so deformed and gross-looking that they couldn't look away.

One of the grossest things I can think of is getting scratched by a human being. I have a horrible phobia of long fingernails, even well-manicured ones. So naturally fingernails are one of my favorite things to draw, in the same vein as the maggots that keep showing up in my art. I'm a fan of skeeving myself out.

      Ah, thanks man! AW I feel ya on that, crowded images weird me out. I just always dig drawing things that touch on various phobias, uncomfortable drawings are always interesting to work on.

        I know right? Better for scratching an itch than these dull flat things~

    I'd hate (love?) to see whatever that person looks like under the hoards of hands. The flesh on their arm is already ripping off as is. :0

      AH HAH yeah I was thinkin' of that while I was drawing it, god. Horrible, just horrible.

        I just imagine that trash bag, carrying stuff that's just far too heavy for it, and as you lift it up into the garbage, the plastic starts to tear and the stuff spills out onto the grou- *barfs*
