....CG hands for example. They are one of the greatest turn-offs in contemporary movies for me. They remind me of puffed up rubber gloves .
Look at the sheer artistry of a designed, stylised and dynamic handdrawn hand for comparison, it shows an elegance, I completly and painfully miss in CG.
I pulled this sheet from the web a year ago or so, and have completly forgotten , where I found it. My apologies and appreciation to whoever put this together, great job, and it perfectly illustrates my point : there isnt a single finger, wrist or arm, left hand -right hand, that's not corresponding with any of the other elements. A style of drawing you can only achieve, through cheating by drawing.Please understand me correctly : its a shortcoming of the medium, not the animator !
ULI MEYER has sent over some examples of his work on CG hands, but I am too incompetend to open them. Instead I am posting this vintage pic of the master himself, bewitching his drawingboard with voodoochants in the morning.
Andrei ( link on the right ) has sent over some sketches of his newborn son's hands. Marvelous work ! Enjoy...
