Clawed Hands Reference by ABRZA Clawed Hands Reference by ABRZA
I've seen 100,000 hand reference sheets… but I've never seen one with claws. Was asked about this the other day, figured "why not". If you have any questions, I'll try my best to answer them.

Referenced my own hands, obviously.

Fairly accurate, as far as I can tell. Very nice. My only qualm, is that claws on human hands will never be that sharp, unless they are newly filed. It's certainly not easy to keep them that long, either...

*Looks from own hands to referance* Not that much difference between nail length at this moment. ^^;
I love that you have some poses here that I haven't found on any of the regular hand references.

I giggled at the evil piggy...made me think about a claw-nailed villain having a plush toy collection :D
Also, the way you draw fingers and palms and wrists are DIVINE :heart:
Right near the center of the palm - where the wrist meets the bottom, then curves up to the thumb, and elegantly folds when holding something - how do you keep that consistent shape and size? :la:

THANK YOU. I draw hands consistently because I don't "make them up". I constantly look at my own hands when drawing hands so that I KNOW they look right. What you see here (and in all my drawings) is basically me drawing from observation. I know the break down of "how to draw" hands but, like everything else, your brain tends to drift from what looks "right" if you let it.

Wow, thank you so much! Each one is so well drawn! I thought I had all the hand reference-sheets on computer hard-drive could hold, but I think I'd delete most of them for this - what a huge help! (half my OCs have clawed hands, so basically, I owe you for life. ;P) Thanks again, really! :tighthug:
