Lotus Hands

Wanted to revisit the figure eight composition again for a shirt design. I was also inspired to draw seven fingered hands!

Why seven fingers you ask? Four fingered hands are too prevalent in today's cartoons, and five fingered hands are normal and boring. If I drew a six fingered hand, people would think that I added an extra finger on accident and laugh at me. Adding two extra fingers should be enough to let people know that I mean business and added extra fingers on purpose. Seven fingers also felt like a good amount; not too high and not too low of a number.

Simple, but this actually took a lot of work. Mainly because I didn't have a set idea of what to do and planned as I went along.
