I think it doesn't matter as long as the hand is that of hunoidish form. (So I guess some type of android robot might be ok). I see this week's challenge as a challenge to draw hands, and drawing an organic hand is usually much more challenging that a robotic squarish hand. :s Let skammy say though his opinion on the subject.

EDIT: Yukky typo.

I guess it should be fine doing an andriody hand as smk said (since it would basically be a metallic version of a human hand anyway). Anyway, post your ideas in here if you're unsure.

Here is my wip. Still pretty boring a single hand is quite boring in my oppinion. So thats the challenge maybe.

Where did it say that it had to be a single hand? Or just a hand?

@Manjaman: Reminds me of these creatures from the Oddworld series:

First sketch, nevermind the big border, that's gonna go, it's just part of my process.

Left the construction lines underneath.

Title is "I'll fix you".
Ref is my hand, from real, lolz, but with the tablet's pen instead of the syringe... I'm terrified of them haha.

I'm terrrified of them too.  :-(
 
 
Any tips on how to finish this?  It's kind of an impending doom type thing.
I had to brighten the colors so I can see them on this dark crt I'm on.  I'll tone it down when I get home.
hehe (ಠ_ಠ ) o_- :p

Still a WIP - I don't like the Colors.

Reference: http://www.nnanos.nl/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/escher-tekenen.jpg and my own hands.

Note: I didn't want to make an exact copy of escher's drawing.

Haha, nope. Never heard of it.

Btw. I'm basically finished with it. Even knocked the preview out. (pretty crappy but.. oh well.)

I'll probably submit tomorrow before I go out. I wanna take a few more looks at it, make sure I got every major flaw out of the way.
