This week your drill is to create a human hand, pose it, then tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #HumanHand.

This week your drill is to build a digital hand from scratch. This might sound easy as most people underestimate how difficult hands are to create and pose realistically. A hand can evoke emotion with very subtle details similar to a face so don't underestimate the complexity of this brief. You can submit multiple poses, or go crazy detailed on a single pose. For texture painters going for realism, make sure to do solid research about the complex layers that are formed to make skin and nails. Both stylised and realistic hands will be accepted.

To get some feedback on your work-in-progress project before you submit it, head over to Discord channel and chat with other artists having a crack. To see all the Weekly Drill projects just follow this link.
