That hand I assume everyone's talking about was gonna be one of those foreshortening things where the character holds his/her hand out at the camera with that ridiculously big grin on his/her (her, usually--think Haruhi Suzumiya) face. That said, I'm aware of the epic scale of my fail.

So I did a new one:

And this one is an anatomy study in an old, rotting notebook (Warning: artistic nudity in which no parts usually censored are shown):

Hands are like homework: you hate working on it, but you're happy when it's done.

Hands are so boring to practice--but they're so important. I suppose I could contour draw my own hand from different angles, then after 30 minutes of that, reference it. I heard that works.

Yeha just keep cranking out hand drawings. I used to love drawing hands in high school. Then I hardly drew for years and now they are a pain point for me again.

Like most have said, work with hands but I definitely see an improvement.

I need to doodle more...

I should include hands as a major part of every drawing I do from now on. Or doodle hands every now and then.

Two of my characters from a story I've never got around to finishing. Golden Summer. Not sure what you guys think, but I think they're closer to the moe style than I've done so far.

First thing I noticed was that the hands are a lot less sausage-like. Plus, I like the detail on the clothes on the second girl...Sierra Summer.
