Captain America vs the combined might of Red Skull and the "man hands"

Before I get into my one main criticism of this piece (and the inspiration for the title of this blog post), let me say that I'm very happy with the finished outcome. I feel I really tried to put some extra work into the detail of this one especially in the smallest figure.

That said, I was excited to try and use this pose of Hayley Atwell/Peggy Carter making eye contact with, and pointing her gun at the viewer. I knew the perspective could be an issue so I made extra sure that I got the size relationships exactly the same as in the photo. I know I did it right, and that this is how it is supposed to look, but her hand just looks a little large. Maybe its just in my mind after staring at it from a distance of 6 inches for 12 straight hours, but it instantly made me think of that Seinfeld episode where Jerry is dating a girl with enormous man-sized hands. Maybe I'm just crazy and seeing things that aren't there.

 

And speaking of man hands, HERE'S THE CLIP I WAS THINKING OF
