SYAC - A Handy Reference by TomPreston SYAC - A Handy Reference by TomPreston

Just like how I frequently make silly faces when drawing cartoon faces, sometimes I use my own hands as reference when drawing cartoon hands.

I do this same thing when I try hand poses. I've never had anyone question it, but I'm sure they were giving me weird looks.

Drawing hands sucks sometimes. :XD: Sometimes I'll randomly ask my friends to do some random pose or things with their hands to study them. They're used to it.

I do that too, and since I'm right handed and have to look at my right hand... it gets difficult
