Big Hands Big Feet!

My husband has been asking me to do another sculpt of a bigfoot hand.  This time I sculpted the backside out of WED clay.  I thought it would be fun to add the different textures as well as hair onto the tops.  I usually aim for the width to be about 7-7.5 inches and around 10-11 inches from tip of middle finger to the base of the palm.  I base all my sketches and sculpts around the hand casts we have accumulated around the house.  These measurements seem to prove true for most if not all of the casts.

One thing I struggled with was the proportion of their fingers compared to the palm.  Much different compared to a human.  It almost looks comical.  The palm is long and about double in length compared to their big, hairy digits.

So there it is!  I had a lot of fun with it.
