• proximal phalanx

    Can someone explain to me what’s supposed to be wrong here? Is the editor implying that the hand is too small? It looks exactly the right size. Her proximal phalanx is about the same length as her nose, as is mine. Perhaps they would have been happier with a GIANT IN YOUR FACE FIST from wide-angle perspective?

      Place your thumb (same fist) on your chin and look at where the top of it is — mine ends up just above the tip of my nose, like in the photo. That being said, who holds their fist like that (back and over their shoulder)?

    The scale of the hand is not that far off, but it is in a really awkward, possibly painful position- try it.

    The hand size doesn’t seem to be off, but the pose is weird and unnatural.
