My first Challenge Submission. Wish meh luck!

Anyway.. there is a response to a high five where you put the bottom of your fist against their palm, and yell "Awkward Turkey!" and if you look at it. It resembles a Turkey.. Anyway..

This is it.

Ref: My hands. Idk, I tend not to use pictures for some reason.

WIP1: (Didn't start saving WIP's till after I finished the first hand :/)

Thank you for explaining the knuckles thing : ). The only reason I am against dithering is because it is an uncontrollable texture, not that it isn't texture, it just isn't a real texture. It is a sandy, grain-like texture. 

Atrophy (Level 1 Intern) @ 1/31/2010 19:56

 We already had an argument on Dithering on Eclipse.. And yes It gives a sense of texture,  guess what HAS a texture. That would be skin. Thanks for the crit. I'm sure I could touch up the colors a bit, but seeing as its been submitted for a challenge, its a tad to late to change anything.

As for shortening the fingers, Its not that they are long, its that the knuckles aren't really visible, which is because i quickly finished to submit it so that i didn't miss the deadline since i was busy the following day.

Well then I recommend you shorten the finger length or fix a depth issue. Okay if that is what your take on dithering is, then it isn't done well here. Dithering gives a false texture if you want to know my take on it. It was just some criticism. I would work on the colors a bit too if you want more criticism to completely disagree with.

 Slym.. ugh. Make a fist.. you don't see your fingernails..  and dithering isn't bad if its done well.. like it is here.

This is to awesome, I love the Dithering ;u; <3 And the colors are so nice to

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 1/30/2010 13:54

Way too much dithering :(. I dislike how I can't tell if the hand on the right has fingernails or not. 

Ergg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 1/24/2010 03:37

Great but a usual your dithering is too used.

Atrophy (Level 1 Intern) @ 1/23/2010 23:16

 @ All

Thanks so much for the kind words and support of it.


@ Apixel

I've heard of Stickshift, when someone goes to fish bump, you grab their hand and jerk it around.


@ Chrispy

I'm having a hard time picturing this in my head.

TheChan (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/23/2010 17:03

Best one.

Chrispy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 1/23/2010 16:18

There's also jellyfish, where before the person high fives you you pull your hand back and try to use your fingers to make your hand look like a jellyfish

Robinhood (Level 9 Boss) @ 1/23/2010 15:22

wow.  nice palette choice,  and nice simple background

APixel (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/23/2010 13:20

 This is great! I like the preview... it seems to add to the idea.

Great color choice too, just enough red.

btw the snail one is for fist bumping. The second person make a peace sign (thumb down, hand parallel to the ground) and slides his hand under the fist of the person attempting to fist bump.  SNAIL! :p

Good luck in the challenge, seems to me like you have a good chance of winning
