Hand Study 2- Thumb by Lijon Hand Study 2- Thumb by Lijon
The result of today's hand study, again done in JoinMe, but I suppose it's a little too boring to watch me draw hands over and over- LMFAO

(From Left to Right)
First part done with reference from [link]

I discovered by the end of this that I need 2398479 times more practice to be able to do it free hand (damned pun), but it's slowly getting easier! I can feel the difference haha-

Anyway I hope this helps! :iconcoolplz:

This is very helpful :happybounce: thanks so much for sharing
I love how you did the intersecting lines, they're very helpfull too.

The thumb in the far left, middle, is going horizontally. That however is impossible to do without pressing it down, due to the bone structures in both the root joint and the ground joint of the thumb. Hope it's okay I pointed that out :love:

The neat thing about hands and other extremities is that they're never the same! :D These are really good drawings of hands.

Why can't my thumb do that?!! ;A; maybe it's too hitchhiker.

i just have one critic of this. the middle image set of bending the thumb, it doesnt bend across the palm straight it kind of diagonals towards the base of the little finger. well on my hands anyway. the rest is very good and useful
Reply
:iconlijon:
Lijon Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012
I think you're refering to the last image of that set? The thumb is straight and pointing outward without flexing the thenar :iconcoolplz: It's a rather stiff pose, but it showed where the bone is (aka where the phalanges end) But yes, if you relax your hand the thumb does bend lol

:iconhoshi-kou:
hoshi-kou Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012
on the right hand side of the 3 hands the middle set last image with the red thumb drawn at a 90 degree angle. (next to the text bend out) i cant get my thumb to do that. maybe other people can but i thought thumbs didnt bend like that. mine when bent ends up diagonal up rather than straight across
Reply
:iconlijon:
Lijon Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012
lol really? That is really interesting! Mine can do the 90 degrees xDDD I should make a poll and ask :iconslashshine:
My hands are really strange though- I can make a victory sign of 90 degrees... Most people couldn't do it unless they cheated xD
