with David Finch

Sample Clip

In this DVD, David Finch reveals his step-by-step process for drawing hands and feet. He starts with simple block shapes, and moves on to more complex shapes before showing how to place fingers and toes correctly. David discusses common mistakes and how to avoid them. He covers fingers and toes in detail, demonstrating how to draw them flat and in foreshortened perspective from multiple angles. He demonstrates some easy shortcuts and tricks, including use of negative space and dynamic folding between the fingers and thumb. Lastly, he draws completed hands and feet from multiple angles, covering the differences between male and female hands and subjects such as drawing claws, fingernail details and shoes.

David Finch

Comic Book Illustrator

David Finch began his comic book career at the age of 22 at Top Cow Productions, part of Image Comics. There he created Ascension and Aphrodite IX, both of which were top sellers in the business, with Aphrodite IX debuting as the number one comic book in the industry. In 2001 he made the move to Marvel comics where his catalog of work included Call of Duty, Ultimate X-Men, Avengers Disassembled and The New Avengers. His run on Moon Knight skyrocketed this title into the main Marvel universe and landed him a top-five book which sold more than five times the title's previous release. David then turned his attention to working with Lost, Heroes and Smallville executive producer, Jeph Loeb, on Marvel’s smash hit Ultimatum. 2010 saw another major change in David’s career as his made the transition from Marvel Comics to DC Comics and the Warner Brothers banner. His artwork will be featured on the covers for the upcoming follow up to Darkest Night, entitled Brightest Day. In addition to his comic career, David has also worked in video games, music and film.

"Dave Finch is one of the most dynamic illustrators working in commercial art today. His amazing layouts, his unique character designs and his extraordinary flair to create exciting images are nothing but top flight. And it's fun... something that's incredibly difficult to pull off and he does so consistently."
