Update on the original V1. Worked out a slightly more organic feeling on the hands, and decided to toss in some wrists for good measure...

Awesome, although the rounding of the wrists look a bit funny if you look at it for too long.
@Taylor - Thanks a lot! You know I had them squared off at first...but I thought that rounding them looked more natural / less abrupt.
i think you have it pretty spot on here, good job!
Michael, this is a much better direction than the original one-hand concept. A few thoughts:
1. What if you go back to the wrist-less design, but continue the black stroke all the way around, closing off the flesh color? That would "complete" the design in a way I think you're looking for.
2. The fingers add visual noise to the design. What if you truncate the separator lines before they reach the knuckle?
This use of the hands says "give" so much more than the side view. I like the rounded wrists as well.
gotta agree with @Taylor i kinda feel it weird those wrists.
This is great. Maybe make the wrists thinner and square? Just a thought. But the direction is excellent.
@Jay - Good thoughts > Still playing around with the lines but indeed, simpler is usually better ;) Thanks a lot!
@Juan - Thanks for the thoughts my man. None of these have hit the client side yet, so we'll see which way they lean...
@Hillary - Cheers! A touch thinner may be the way to go > add a little more perspective to the mix...
@Steve / Rick / Jonathan / Andre - Thanks a bunch guys! :)
I think the wrists are nice, it looks like there's another heart is being formed. Keep it up! ^^
Cheers guys! :)
@Jacob - Thanks a lot Jacob!
So I've got a little update on the 'side view' V2 > HERE
Client wasn't completely thrilled with the hands overall, but that may be due primarily to color... (They want something a bit fresher > no skin tones / reds > but they reference pastels..?)
Blue hands might be a tricky sell for most people, but we'll see... ;)
Your updated side view is better, but I think it reads as an "illustration," where the two hands view reads as a "logo."
@Jay - Thanks Jay, and yeah, I hear you on the logo/illustration deal.
But again, I think the whole set is pretty much done for the moment. So it's back to the drawing board I suppose... ;)
