Making a figurine hand tutorial part I by sculptor101 Making a figurine hand tutorial part I by sculptor101
It took me a while to make this simple tutorial of how to make figurine hand. Wish I have an extra hand to take pictures... It is pretty much self explain of step by step in the picture comparison. Although it looks simple but you do need the proportional conception of human's hand and fingers in mind. And also compare with the character that you are making. Make a good calculation for the size, think it over through, get it right at once. 

Please note the nail should better be made from the beginning of each finger. You might not get a good position to sculpt the nails when putting fingers together. Only if you are making large size hands.
The picture shown with a shape knife meant when you going to bend the fingers. Make a shape cut but don't cut it off! Pull it up a little, bend it and fix a bit for the gaps after you bend it. 

I make it in small scale so you may use the same skill to make larger hands. Hope this may help you a little. Please advise if you have any suggestion or question. Thank you for watching my friends! Enjoy!!

I'm so glad you like it! I was surprised for the responses of this simple tutorial after I posted it. Perhaps it took me a long time to figure out a way making hands. But I'm glad sharing it and helps a little to anyone who needs it. This is one of the methods for smaller scale hands. Hope I can find some time making more useful tips.

Well, thank you so very much. Hands have always vexed me, especially in sculpture. I plan to make my best friend a Tom Hiddleston Loki sculpture for her birthday and this was exactly the tutorial I needed :)

I think it should be ok, the tutorial is just a way of skill that you may use, the most important thing is thinking why would I do it that way. Is there any other better way? 
Yes, pick some materials that you can afford first! :) (Smile)
