So amazing! And the improvement is so obvious, it's really cool to see such an improvement. (: Just one little thing, in the after one, the thumb looks a little off. The building and the bird and just the detail is so awesome!
the the positioning of the tree is in someway placed to suggest it replaces the index finger. However the index finger cannot bend in the same way the tree does. Regardless of this I decided it is better that it looks good than completely follow anatomical rules (which there is no need for anyway given that it is a tree and not a finger)
haha, thanks. I'll look into the thumb. the city in the background looks ok from far away but it is hard to make it look really good up close without spending like 10 hours more.. THanks for your comment! ^^
