This time I am modeling the hands. I am not looking at references yet, just blocking out the shapes.
You will see me starting from a cube, which I subdivide manually to extrude faces and create the fingers.
I push the details on one fingers then duplicate it to create the other ones. Very often you will see me going from low poly to high poly using the 1 and 3 keys in maya 2009.
and here is the second pass
Third pass, refining the shape, cleaning up some edges, adding more detail
