I see. ya, i'm using just a cheap point a shoot like you've said (Casio Exilim Z-75). I guess it's not horrible but still a bit annoying. It's also good enough for me really cause i have no interests in photography so whatver..lolIt's caused by barrel distortion. Most point and shoot cameras have this as a side effect.
Drawing looks good.
ahh thanks I did have a lot of difficulty with the hand. First off, it's in an awkward angle in the reference picture (and in fact, looks a bit weird in the reference photo too). Secondly, the detail was very unclear for me to go by and thus the result is in this photo of my drawing. However, I did rework it a bit since I have taken this picture and it looks better. Not perfect, but better.heres some advice.
i know that hands and fingers are really intricate and very hard to draw, but having well drawn hands REALLY make the entire work shine. practice drawing hands, either using your own as models or you can ask someone to put their hand in different positions while you practice.
