    apparently my tutor chats shit then. we'll see what happens when i carry on with it

    as for the fingers being too far apart, the fingers match the positioning of my reference image exactly - the fingers are splayed in the reference (apparently modelling them splayed out is better for a character t-pose because it's easier to rig the skeleton later or something?????? i dunno i'm shit at 3d)
    I don't know who your tutor is, but he sounds kind of fishy. My teacher's an accomplished modeler for games and he taught us to model the hand in a relaxed pose.

    modeling in a relaxed pose makes the deformations look better, vman's right.

    ye he did tell us that actually but then he said it'd be harder(???) so we did it splayed instead

    i dunno i don't trust him entirely either but i know shit all about 3D and dislike it anyways

    Wow... Some of your work is just amazing!
    You put the bar pretty high my good man!

    Also, is there any special painting programs you use when not doing it by hand?

    I'm not much of a designer, but the text is a bit difficult to read on some pages.
    You know, bright background and small white letters..

    try to paint more loose and effective, so it won't take so much time. The trick is to get readable shapes with minimal effort.

    Also more values man.

    still working on how strong the specular needs to be
    also i misplaced the lips so it looks like he has a pink moustache
    also he looks exactly like woody so i'm gonna give him a fuckin handlebar moustache, blue eyes and blonde hair (hitler youth cowboy)
    Makes me think of the characters in Morrowind for some reason.

    started modelling a hand badly:



    Don't start at the fingers. Start with the palm, and extrude the fingers. Make sure the palm has a slope (from the top view) for the thumb.
