Default Hand

Hello everybody. I've been working on a body for a little while now. The hand is the most complete piece but I am having some issues with the thumb as I'm sure you'll quickly be able to see. I am fairly happy with the rest of the hand but i was wondering if anyone had any ideas or tips for improving the look of the thumb specifically or the rest of the hand.

Thanks in advance!

thanks. I never really noticed it to be so far off. But compare my own hand to your model vs mine, I see there is a large difference now. Thanks for the tip, I'll update it in the near future. I am working on another project at the moment.

from what ive heard, people grow out this nail to scoop small amounts of cocaine. i think the op does a bit of drugs.


1. cocaine fingernail


One fingernail, usually the pinky, allowed to grow long and used to snort cocaine out of.

You can tell he hasn't cleaned up, he's still got a cocaine fingernail.
tags cocaine fingernail crack nail crackhead

thanks for all the replies, and no it is not a crack nail. However the nail is fairly proportional to the size of the rest of them, but I can make em a bit longer so that the pinky doesnt look so odd.

I aprreciate the feedback everyone.

As someone else pointed out, the thumb is what needs to most work, from above it looks ok, but from the under side it needs work. Just keep tweaking it, you'll get it.
