Finger Cartoons

Learn these basic hand poses and store them in your arsenal of techniques. Notice how all the joints of the fingers are apparent, even when they aren't bent.

THE FINGER POINT

Best used by an angry boss threatening to fire a reporter. Note how both the heel of the thumb and part of the palm heel are visible in this pose.

THE OPEN HAND

This is a standard hand pose, for when you don't need a specific hand gesture. Note how flat the tips of the fingers appear.

THE RELAXED HAND

Use this one for heroes or villains who have been knocked unconscious by a blow or disabled by nerve gas. Note the severe turn at the wrist, which gives it its limp appearance.

STAGGERED FINGERS

For a character who is explaining something. Note the large knuckle at the base of the thumb.

To make a more in-depth study of the hand and its many poses, you can purchase a hand mannequin at an art supply store.

THE FIST

Lifted in rage, or in combat. Note how the thumb overlaps the first two fingers, and how well defined the heel of the palm is.
