People Are Failing Miserably at This “Hack” for Drawing the Perfect Hand
Anyone who's taken a sketch class can relate.
If you’ve ever taken a sketch class, you know that hands are deceptively difficult to draw. Even the unique features of a face can often be easier to capture than five fingers attached to a palm. More often than not, your rendition resembles a blown-up surgical glove—which is perhaps why people got so excited when Twitter account @SatisfyingDaily recently posted a video that made drawing a woman’s hand look oh-so-very easy.

Some people thought they’d be better off if they practiced just the fingers first… But nope!

While they may not look anything like hands, some of the results would be great as inspiration for a horror movie about a slug-like alien life force determined to take over the planet.

And others resemble an animal’s foot, which is, like, close enough, right?
