Transformer or Mecha Hands 01 by batchix Transformer or Mecha Hands 01 by batchix
I have so much trouble drawing hands... but transformers hands take the cake. I think it's the weird forshortening you have to do on them. Same with their limbs... that's why my pics don't have a whole lot of fore shortening or detail to them. XD

Anyway. I built a 3d model of a transformer/mecha hand to help me draw and thought I'd post some of the renders to help other people as well. I put it in stock, but it's really intended as a drawing reference. I suppose you could do image manip with them but it's not really made for that(black background will swallow up shadows). At any rate have fun~

If people like this, I'll be happy to do some more poses or renders. :3 just ask.

Thank you so much for posting this. I believe it'll prove to be quite helpful when I'm doing Dreamwave/IDW inspired art.

I share your pain. Since I draw in such a relatively small scale, hands gets the worst part of detailing. And when I draw them separately I am not 100% satisfied with the result.

Your render looks amazing and gives you and idea on how to articulate and decorate them, in the case you want to give more life to the hands.

Thanks for sharing.

That is great! I've been needing a decent reference like this - trying to draw from my own hands doesn't work very well.

This is a brilliant reference for me :D. For my 3d major modelling assignment I decided to do a bipedal robot, but got stuck on how the hand would work/look. Thanks for uploading this :D :D
