I need a good basic tutorial for making hands. I'm constructing an android similar to the ones in I Robot meets the Terminator. I want metal knuckles(the parts to look crafted out of metal) contrasted with plastic fingers(More shapely). I want to contrast an organic look with an inorganic look. I've done basic cartoonish hands, but never one with this much detail. So any tuts with robot hands or a basic human hand. It seems that this would be done in pieces. Any thoughts or tips would be appreciated.

Not sure there are specific tutorials about robot hands. It's basically hard surface modeling.

I would recommend sketching out what you want to model first. Doing that will help you 'see' what each part is (cylinder, box, ring, sphere, etc).

Dozens of robot hands to study or emulate.
