Very good.! I like the sketch quality.

Wonderful use of tones.

I'm having a hard time getting the fingers to work right; turns out it's an awkward angle. I might have to resort to making a reference photo for myself (horrors!)... 3/4 perspective of bent fingers turns out to be a real pain!

Every time I do this stuff and try to do more detail I have more respect for the masters and guys like escher; it's clear that I need to really dig into anatomy if I want to get to a serious level of quality. It seems like there's a tipping point when I draw where I'll suddenly feel like I'm drawing _on the real object_, as a solid, rather than just sketching or painting, and that's the point when it goes bang and really starts to look good. But right now my limited understanding of what I'm drawing means that only happens in certain areas, and the others are kind of flat even if it seems like they do everything right.

Does anyone know if Poser models skeletons and musculature to do its rendering, or if it's just rules-based? The ability to pose a hand and then figure out the relationships of bones/tendons/muscles would be fantastic... if nobody does it, someone should!

A good reference helps a lot if you want to draw and paint realistically. You are very good at putting in details though.

great skin texture. That curled finger looks a little small to me, but when I try and view my hand from that angle it looks about right. hmmmmm

The eyes have it, and I've had it with the eyes. ;)
