Time for another anatomy challenge, but with a twist!

If there is one thing that really makes you break your pencil in half with sheer rage it's failing at drawing hands. So just lay back, relax and pixel the weirdest hand you can; 4 noodly thumbs, 2 middle fingers and no palm? Why not.

Just make sure that your hand is somewhat functional.

Canvas Size - Max. 200x200.
Colors - Max. 16.
Transparency -  Optional.
Animation - Optional.

Wow, I'll set aside time for this.

snv: Believe me, I've never seen this meme. Maybe that's why I did not understand it very well. :(

Well, I'll see if I can get a hand model:

Could be a cool game character, that uses his head to grab objects.
