Yes it's true, new monthly tutorials are now available via my Patreon
>>>>> Get new tutorials and lend me a helping hand (get it) (cuz hand tutorial) (kbye) here <<<<<

Another tutorial :B Theres a lot of text but I tried to make my system as clear as possible. As usual you can copy or use any of these drawings freely, but be sure to read the tut as well! As I recommend in it to ref from photos or real life over other people who might have made mistakes (not me of course, as I never make mistakes) (lol). Enjoy!

Am I the only one weirded out by that area of my hand that connects the thumb muscle with the rest of the palm? (And I cringe just thinking of cutting it?)

What do you mean? Going into detail is extremely helpful. Some people really need the help, especially if they aren't familiar with drawing hands. I bet if he had 5 word examples, you would still complain.
