I can't draw hands.

on: March 12, 2007, 03:46:22 pm


I'm having a hard time deciding what to do with the hands on this thing.

I just want the simple shading.
But some of it is off, such as the arm.
Anyone care to help?

I think this would do well with only a thumb, something like this:

A cigarette in the hand facing us, and the other hand should have a fist.

god i hope not.

The feet and anatomy are already oversimplified, so i think you should stick to ball hands.

Not Terra the game...
Old project of mine "Terra Online

(Yes snader I am :P)

Oversimplified?
Here's an example of how the hair would look.


Sorry Ricco, haven't done the hands yet so I'm making some items of your edit until I can make better hands.

If the latest template is a good indication of the detail these will have you should use vectors. Honestly, it'd look 20 times better and much more professional if this was a vector drawing with AA.

I don't like the way the arm just...curves out of the torso without a shoulder.

Expanding on what Crab said, I don't necessarily think you should make this in vector, but rather, that you should take advantage of the benefits of pixeling it, such as nice, crisp detail. Like on your hair there, you can keep it simple, but I think some hilights would do the piece some good. And when you get to the face, it should be as detailed as possible without breaking the style. Like, details unique to pixel art. By which I mean pixel small details. You get meh?
