heeeey... wouldya lookit that o.O ... don't think I've ever seen anything quite like that before.. it's a totally awesome concept! - I wonder if they shake hands to mate.. or arm-wrestle for territory!! ... I love the mixed media feel to this.. the styalised nature of the forms at the bottom of the swamp, contrasting nicely with the photorealism of the hands themselves.. but somehow they all seem to fit together quite well! .. I love the way you've thought about the shame of the hand and what form their tails should take, (for example, following the curve of action on the big one on the left... so it actually looks like it could be swimming along) .... I really would hate to fall into this swamp though.. I imagine they'd all come swimming after you and grab you and pull you down into the abyss..... I'm ing this.. because I totally love the concept and the originality of it.
