- Laduma - COM by alatherna - Laduma - COM by alatherna
Commission for :icontarrot: :>

This is Tarrot's character, Laduma. I had so much fun drawing him, this is the first time I've drawn an anthro character so this was a challenge, but at the same it was very enjoyable and Laduma is a really fun character to draw. He's happy, cute, and he loves watermelons! 8D

I really like drawing sunny, happy pictures so I'm really satisfied with this picture :>

Please Enjoy! ♥



Laduma *Tarrot

Be careful with your anatomy. Having that index finger bending in basically the opposite direction of the middle finger looks wonky and not really possible. Other than that this is a really great drawing. I love this coloring!

I can bend mine like that:D I'm impossible;)

Cherubas Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Lol, you must be! I can't bend mine at that angle without being uncomfortable (definitely not how I would casually hold something), and even then I can't bend them to that extreme. The middle knuckles are almost on opposite sides from one another. Even if you can bend that way, I can promise you it's not common and it looks unnatural. XD

Hm, as for my left hand it could be because I've been trying to play a guitar for perhaps 2-3 years, but it doesn't explain my right hand doing this too...
Have you tried holding sth small and spread the fingers then? But of course, by reallife fingers this would be less 'algly', the finger will look more roundish^^
As for the look, I've seen this in a lot of artworks, especialy of such type of style. As for those by the masters, even in realism, this is kinda close: upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia… of course the angle is not so extreme and we can see the middle finger from the very front, but the general pose of the hand is kinda similar^^ BTW, perhaps alatherna  would like to compare and decide if she overlooked that or it's the result she wanted^^ I think I'd just change the placement of the middle finger's claw more to the middle^^ But that would be if I wanted to go more realistic, and this artwork is definitely meant to be more fantasy-like, the author is rather an anime artist, and anime seems to like stylizing(just look at anime bird wings xD they lack of anatomy for the sake of another effect), perhaps the fingers are part of a stylization here^^ There is such thing in art like 'mistakes on purpose'^^ And of course 'mistakes by mistake'. I guess only the author knows the truth here:) I just wanted to say it's not that impossible... and I'm adding that some styles allow some 'mistakes' for other purposes^^ Even if in this case it's just a 'mistake by mistake' I just wanted to say that some other works may have such thing made consciously:)

if only you did. because a human finger is literally incapable of twisting like that - i couldn't hold my hand that way, and when i tried to manually move my finger into that position it hurt like hell. and i have incredibly flexible fingers.
Reply
:iconvixendra:
VixenDra Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Seems they're not THAT flexible;] And mine are just semi flexible yet still I CAN do that. And have you tried with both hands? And did you look from the right angle?
And my Love knew a girl who could bend her palm so it touched her forearm with its top side.  Like if she had no joint connection, yet she had. I can't imagine the face of their biolgy theacher when that girl did this right after the teacher had said joints have limits:P The teacher could only say one thing 'but there are some exeptions...".
Now... you could as well deny this guy: www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYgDwL… (skip to 0:45) and many others like him. Just becuase me and you can't do that, doesn't mean it is impossible, does it?:)
Perhaps this character can do this little thing. And... some rules can be broken in art, especially in such style.
