Subject title: Nishrek's sketchbook

theyre nice, but i think youre overworking it a bit, you dont need to add every single detail (aka nails and knuckle wrinkles) its about form not details, a simplified hand looks like a hand even without nails and even with 4 fingers insted of 5... we tend to think that detail will make our drawings better, but first of all you need to understand the form, id recommend you to study the anatomy at its simplest form (cubes spheres and cylinders) before actually trying to portray every single muscle, wrinkle and stuff...:D
