Simpson Hands-Male

Postby Morpheus306 » Sat Apr 22, 2006 6:29 am

Here are some hands in the simpson style.  These would work with Homer, male and female kids, and any fat character.  The other characters such as Flanders, Lenny, etc. have hands like these with slightly longer fingers.  The thing to rememeber is 'keep 'em plump.'  I'll do a female version later.

I agree, this can be really useful. When I was drawing Simpsons, hands were my biggest problem. Thanks :)

LISA: My God, they are stubby...


Yeah, hands were always a problem for me as well.  When I bothered to attempt drawing, that is.  *cough*

Feels kinda pointless since I don't actually do stuff at Gaia, so I'm putting it here.

Eyes have always been a problem for me. Oh, and hair! I can never seem to draw Lisa or Maggie with 8 hair points. Only 6.

Hands are always difficult to get right. Even cartoon hands. People see their hands all the time and intuitively know when a hand looks wrong in a picture - even if they can't draw them.

Which is my way of saying I find this very useful. :) Moreso than How To Draw the Simpsons, which had a few flaws...
Our choicest plans have fallen through, our airiest castles tumbled over, because of lines we neatly drew and later neatly stumbled over.

Ooh, very good!  I never really draw in the Simpson/Groening style myself anymore, but these are excellent poses and helpful for thinking about cartoon character hands in general.  :)

Well, I must hand it to ya, those are pretty handy...

*silence*
:P

Since I've always in some way messed up hands, I usualy try to hide them; behind a gun, a door, under a table or somthing just to save the picture. But this should be really helpful. Nice one Morpheus :)
