3D hand modeling

I decided that I want to have a 3D hand coming out of the computer in my animation, but you may ask “it’s only on screen for a few seconds at the end, why would you make one from scratch?”.
The answer to that is I’d feel I was cheating myself if I didn’t make my own and honestly getting stuff to look good in Maya is sooooooo satisfying.

So below are some progress pictures from the last two days. This probably took around 8-9 hours (yes I know that’s a while but I encountered a few issues) and still needs a few tweaks but I’m pretty proud of it.
I really love modeling when I actually get my act together and do it myself!

1(making the palm of the hand as a base to build from)

2(attaching the wrist- there was a lot of editing here to make the edges bridge well)

3(fingers and thumbs- the fingers are copied & pasted then resized and shaped, a great time saving technique)

4(attaching the thumb)
