Weeeeeell When I was younger (roughly 12-14 ish) I was about as eager to practice as I am now, though more so misguided by the world of online manga (as alot of us have been) and well I thought some stupid things were right when they were clearly wrong, none the less this doesn't really relate to that particular part of it. Its about the practice anyways I decided "hey I can't draw hands" so I found a chart of a bunch of hands (which I have not found again since it was like photos of roughly 30 hands doing various gestures) and I copied them, quite poorly here is the result of that:
Some of the hands just don't make sense and look retarded, but I was young and misguided as previously stated. However I was quite proud of this, so was my mom so she framed it and hung it up in the living room, and there it has bugged the crap out of me since every day seeing all those errors, and today seeing as I am on vecation and I draw shit, I decided to try to fix them. Or redraw them but correct. Ofcourse some of the gestures compared to what they're doing still make no sense but I just wanted to make them look right, not make them make sense,because that doesn't matter right anymore.
so heres that work in progress, kind of fun but its pretty hard to decipher some of them, they're just plain weird.
PS: Hender means hands if you couldn't figure that out by yourselves :rolleyes:

That's a pretty good exercise, seems like. Hands are very interesting to see drawn sometimes, but often hard to do correctly.

lose, it will be fine. You pretend to be Zen. You adopt detachment, and
ironic humor, while secretly praying for a miracle."

nah they were adult hands, but I drew the original when I was 13-14 and less talented, so those ended up being childrens hands (being that I drew children like myself at the time) and when then trying to correct those previous hands I just kept the same size ratio.

The size ratio might actually be part of what's making them difficult to decipher. The 3rd row, one in from the right seems to have that problem. The thumb is at an awkward angle because of how close it is to the forefinger. Of course, we're talking about the human hand, which is a body part that can contort into some of the most disturbing positions ever so there are a lot of poses out there that are correct, but sometimes don't even resemble a hand at first glance. It's a really good exercise idea though and probably something we should all be doing from time to time. I know it gets me thinking, because I'm always looking for something relatively "easy" to do on the bus ride to work for practice.

I don't see how its at an awkward angle man, I can do that with no distress at all, I forgot to draw one of the fingers though so maybe thats it? I dunno.

That's probably it. I wasn't sure if the hand is pointing towards the viewer or down, but now that you mention that there's a finger missing, it's clearer to me. What was at an awkward angle before now makes more sense if I think of it with another finger in there.
