“… I hope this isn’t too weird of a commission request. I’m trying to get commissioned pieces of comic character hands (can include forearm) that shows enough to give a clue as to who they are.

I was hoping I could get a Cerebus hand or forearm either posed (as best as a single extremity can be) or with a signature weapon in hand. I have a “handful” of commissions like this already...”
For the record:

DO THE FRICKIN’ WORK!
So… here’s one that I had abandoned and that prompted me to institute a “No More Superheroes” policy:
Okay… what’s next?
