EDIT: So, for some reason, the image is refusing to show up for me. No idea why. Is it doing that for anyone else...?END EDIT

Tahdah!

I've said it before and I'll say it again; This is the most useful instructional tool I have EVER used: [link]

Posemaniacs showed me enough that I was able to work out a comfortable process. Now I almost never even have to use it as reference.

PRACTICE, PEOPLE, PRACTICE. :heart:

Hands are one of my faourite things to draw. I've always found them to be very elegant, even if they're blocky, muscular ruck-driver hands. :XD: It's all about practice and flow, I'm sure you'll improve if you focus. :)

Oh man, hands are my favourite part of a drawing! ...Well, hands, torsos and hips. :XD: It's feet that I hate...

Your hand tutorials are freakin' fantastic! LOL! I Use PoseManiacs too! I thought those poses looked familiar! Your tutorials and references inspired me to do a tutorial, I hope you don't mind! [link] I credited you; sorry if I seem to have been stepping in your territory, but your work was really inspirational!

Thank you! Posemaniacs is one of my favourite and most used references.

I don't mind at all; DeviantArt is brimming with tutorials, and there's probably people out here who use the same method as I do. I'm glad to have been able to inspire someone, I suppose :)

Also, on an unrelated note, your icon is ADORABLE. What's it from? :giggle:

Thanks so much! I'm glad to hear! n.n

As for the icon, I made it myself! Thank you so much! n.n For a few years, I had a similar icon that had the hamster shaking a sausage, going "Ja... that's a sausage." So when I revamped the animation, I gave him a larger one XD Very random ^^; But I'm glad you like!
