I wanted to look at different body parts and how armor can protect the body from attack.
First up is the hand so I started with a few sketches and made a mock up model using ZBrush. When researching different images of hand armor you can see that outside of the hand is protected by a metal shell and the inner parts is a softer material like leather. After this model I am thinking that the little finger might need a bit more protection along its side and maybe the same with the index finger.
Next I will work on polishing the metal parts and adding details to the material parts.
