Her hand is waaaaay too manly. Girl hands are smoother and dantier.

Looks good otherwise.

james piggott:
Thanks! I agree. I believe what happened is that I got lost in the attempt to translate all the details in the hands (i.e. veins, bone structure, etc) and it ended up appearing exactly how you described it to be.

alexei martins:
Thanks! Glad you like it :) Coincidentally her expression alone is what encouraged to do this study. Haha.
