-Hands Tutorial- by odduckoasis -Hands Tutorial- by odduckoasis
UPDATE: I reuploaded the file, which removed the preview image. You should be able to enlarge the file now w/out needing to download. If you still have issues, just download it, it should work.


It's LONG!!
fair warning. xD; Took me quite a few hours to complete. Another project I just got wound up in and had to complete. Now I can move on to other things easier. xD;

I hope it's helpful, never done a tutorial before... oO;

So, uh, yeah. Enjoy. And don't crit the work done, if you have a comment about content, that's fine (like something you wish I'd put in for instance) but to critique the actual tutorial I would rather you didn't. Thanks!

don't fave w/out commenting please & thank you!

edit: xD;; I was informed the sizing was wrong before for the hand. I realized my mistake, the hand was held too high. It's fixed now... sorry about that!!!

Extra: Thanks for all the support and faves on this! I'm glad it's so helpful and enjoyable! =D I love hands, tis a passion. Hope to see some marvelous hands from ya'll in the future! hehe.

Also take a look other tutorials!! Anatomy & Foot

such a nice tutorialll... how about posting this tutorial in so you can inspirate more artist with this amazing tutorial?
odduckoasis Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2013
I have had this tutorial put on other websites with permission from others. I'm not familiar with that site and do not desire to make an account just to upload this one tut. But thanks for making the suggestion!
hey good work and ill im a big fan etc, but could you please do a tutorial which includes the hand gripping around an object, like the majestic toothbursh. I mean if you think about it we hold our toothbrush more times a day than our loved ones. (Im assuing your a brush-o-holic like myself) So, a tutorial featuring the hand with a main focus on toothbrush -> so, yeah get it done soon, would help alot for this design for colgate.....
