View Full Version : Need help finishing this sketch- arm/hand issues

08-31-2014, 05:09 AM
Looking for someone experienced in this area for a bit of help working out this little fella's left arm. I'm having issues setting it up correctly, and the hand is even worse, since it's supposed to be holding a second bat behind him.

Detailed help is appreciated, as well as red-lining, especially

I'm no expert on it, but I hope this helps:


I would bend the arm a bit, if it goes straight down the bat will most likely hit the feet. A slight bend also looks a bit more natural. Overall though that doesn't look bad to me.

There are a couple ways you could do the hand, but I would suggest having the pointer and middle finger grip tight on the handle and the ring/pinky be more loose. Most people are going to use their first two fingers to hold something like that because of the weight and bulk. You can either have the thumb wrap around or go straight to give a bit more control on the handle. If you did want to have the ring/pinky grip the bat with the pointer/middle loose, the thumb should go out or the bat will have to rest on the ground (think of the weight of the bat, with most of it being in the head).

If you want the bat to go horizontal, I would suggest having him grip the bat more towards the middle of the handle. If he grips it towards the knob, it would be more comfortable to have the tip of the bat lay on the ground.

I hope this helps!
