Here is a collection of the hand characters I have created and hope to improve. The first image is of how the animal hand will move.

The Next shows the hand using a finger as a brush depicting a war scene that I am not yet decided on but would like to involve these hand personifications in a famous war painting.

The next two show the tedious work of a hand either creating or destroying a gun. I chose this instead of another war scene because I enjoy the idea of humans never knowing if technology is working towards peace or destruction. This illustration is my personal favorite because I enjoy playing with the idea of the viewer never knowing for sure what the frozen character is doing.

The next two were explorations of what the animated hand would do in motion while still being frozen. I am continuing this in my next work creating more hands involved in the piece.

The Hand of War

 Here I have a collection of different ways the hands can be positioned to show aggressive behavior. They also have been positioned in stances that simulate a war like stance or hand gesture. The hands will depict scenes of war and moments in history of war. I have focused on aggressive stances but hope to further these sketches into illustrations of moments in history where the hand created or stopped war.

There are also ideas of how the hand creatures will be moving or if they are moving.

Personifying hands
Hands are the tools that have built society and created some of humans greatest accomplishments

I created these images to show the relationship between personified hands and role hands played in human history

Design 4 Media: Project 1

Here are a few Preliminary drawings for my first project. The project is to create three different ideas related in an artist way. I have elected to personify hands. Creating a set of characters through hands will be the relationship in this project. Hands are a key part in the average persons everyday life. Without them life would be extremely difficult. This made me think that they take on their own personality. I have given them a breath and heart beat to match this.
