Clawed Hand Tutorial by Mytherea Clawed Hand Tutorial by Mytherea
For Cris'sake! STOP FAVING THIS THING. It's three years old, it sucks, it hardly explains anything, and was done in less than two hours. If you're going to fave this, at least LOOK at my other work, PLEASE.
Tutorials, for you tutorial minded people:

Actual ART, for those of you who enjoy it:

My whole gallery: [link]
For those of you who read this, you get a cookie. :cookie: For those of you who read this and looked at my other art, you get a hug and a cookie. :tighthug: :cookie:

I am very thankful for all the :+fav:s, but sadly I can't reply to them all! Thank you everyone. I never thought this silly little thing would be so popular. Anyways, I thank all of you for the :+fav:s everyone even though I won't be commenting on each individual profile page, just know that I do thank you. :la:

A tutorial for dragon hands, evil overlord hands, creepy alien hands, and hands belonging to people without nail clippers.

Requested by someone on the NDA Forum boards. They wanted some reference for how to draw clawed hands in all kinds of positions, so here's the result.

Use as reference, use to learn, copy the images (by hand) if you wish, just do not redistribute and do not copy/paste one of the hands onto your art.

Brushes provided by:
:iconphotoshoprangerstock:'s Morning Coffee-PS Brush
:iconannfrost-stock:'s Cofee stains brush
Some of the most useful brushes I've ever found. Go enjoy them. :)
The paper is my own texture which can be found here.

One particular style of claw I am trying to master is the "Azrael Batman" claw.

It's kind of mechanical-looking and has segmented parts to it (somewhat like the Hand of Sauron in Lord of the Rings...you know that evil armored hand).

You may think it hardly explains anything but too others it is a very nicely detailed step by step claw/hand tutorial. Most people dont need to be hand held (sorry for the pun) through a 'how to' tutorial.
P.S. Thanks for the detailed tutorial.

Do you have a clawed feet one? My character Kino doesn't have clawed hands but he has clawed feet. You can see them in this pic: [link]

those tutorials you have up there don't have loads and loads of references of different hand angles. and to still be getting faves is good ;)

No, it doesn't. This stupid thing is over three years old now, and if I had the time, energy, and motivation, I'd replace it with a new one, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Believe me, I'm absolutely shocked it keeps getting faves.

I actually hadn't thought of using this for vampires. It was originally made for dragons/gryphons, but hey, if it works, it works. Glad you found a use for it outside of what I had intended!

You call it style, I call it lack of anatomical knowledge. >_> This is honestly one of THE OLDEST pieces in my gallery, so the style is really just old art.
It's good that you know already! It's probably for the best. This isn't really the best guide for it.
You're welcome, and you too. :)

I had considered trying to try and explain how I draw noses and lips with words, then thought that it would be better and more understandable to show you. So here's the tutorial answering the first part of your question: Everything Concerning Noses Tutorial. I'll put the lips one up as soon as I get it done. I hope this helps you out! :D
