on the drawing board: hands on

When it came to composing this picture I decided to only show part of Michelangelo's David. I gave it some thought and concluded that it had to be his right hand, next to the face it's probably the most definitive part of the statue.

This picture is quite 'hand' centric and for me rendering hands are perhaps even more challenging that faces.; they have all those little creases and visible veins, not too mention the myriad of angles.
