You made a pretty sweet sketch of the bent finger on
the previous page, right? That's Good! But now you're
thinking that most of the time you'll see the hand and
fingers in three dimensions rather than just two. For
example, how would you go about drawing this hand on the
right - Right?
What we've talked about so far as far
as fingers go is drawing them in two dimensions. But you're right, most hands
that you'll want to draw will have three dimensions to them. Like the image
above - all the fingers are curling towards you, so how would you draw that and
make it look correct? Here's how....
Now draw the three
45� angled segments as bent. The rod
running along the top of the segments is
still there, but it's not shown here.
Imagine that it's there so you don't
curve the segments like a long, skinny
water balloon. so, in order to draw
the "Claw Hand" from the top of this
page, you'll draw each finger like we
drew this one, but the angles that you
depict will be different than the finger
shown here. In fact, if you flip this
finger so that it's curling to the
right, that's pretty close how you'd
draw the ring finger of the "Claw Hand"
don't bother with the minute detail, do
a quick sketch and eyeball the
proportions of the "Claw Hand".

Click on the image of the "Claw Hand" and then print
the larger picture. Some things to
notice about the "Claw Hand": The tip of the index finger is
pointing straight at your eye, so the
third segment of the index finger can be
drawn as a two dimensional oval. The
third segment of the pinky is also
fairly two dimensional - we're seeing it from the top.
