@thememime first of all THANK u for enjoying my claw paws i love drawin them oh so much
now let me think,, how do i actually,,,,,,…..draw them….,, ,
hmmmmmm uuuhhhhhhhhhh uuuuuuhhhhhhhhhh
ok to tell u the truth when i draw the claw paws its 100% muscle memory after drawing my dragon oc on every sheet of paper i came into contact with in high school, so actually thinkin abt the process is like ?? uhmmmmhhh well you squiggle it uuh
its not exactly a science i guess, and in retrospect its probably an anatomical bastardization, but i just go with what feels right bro. its kind of like a pattern or a rhythm.
i generally stick with three distinct knobs, a knuckle, another one, and another one after that second one. otherwise its about your line of action and where u want to pull the weight. oh! and i like to let the claws act as an extension of the hand, i give them bulk and weight as well, and they sorta flop around wherever they feel like goin
and of course there are 8,109,553,449 variations in how ya wanna stylize based on the exaggeration of your curves and angles, also by adding knobby joints and wrinkles! wrinkles are fun
but idk man. tbh ive just been kinda bullshitting it the entire time. please dont slap me with pizza dough
