Zoro's request for critique
Hey there, I'm new here. I'm trying to create a manga of my own. My art is not very good in my eyes, at least (since it is not satisfying me) and I am looking to improve. I do not have a lot of work to show so I will start off with this:
My first request is to know how I can improve the way I draw hands. I am currently taking one step at a time to improve my art, starting with hands. I will post more stuff as I go on. Also, in the last hand pose the thumb is pretty off. I noticed that pretty late.
Edit: might be stupid, but noticed that the forum name I have doesn't match the thread and I can't delete it or change the name. If it's not much trouble, would any of the moderators rename the thread to Zoro's request for critique?
Thank you for taking the time to read my post.

If I'm not mistaken you can edit the title yourself my clicking the edit button on your first post and going to advanced, I'll check...
I'm no good with hands, but you're on the right track. I draw at least ten hands in different positions a day for improvement. The best advice I can offer is pretty cliche but: practice and observe.

I agree with cora and i would add one thing to what she mentioned on the lengths of fingers. Watch out for the thumbs, those buggers are long enough to just about reach the second joint of the index finger. Also would mind telling me from what country you are?

Also, I'm from Bulgaria.
Not sure If I should do a double post but here goes:
This is one of the later characters for my manga but it's quickly becoming one of my favourite ones. I see a lot of things that are off after I scanned it but please help me improve him. Thanks
