Someone just e-mailed me with this gif and asked me to start switching it up a little.
So funny. I defended myself by saying, "How many webcomics go through the trouble of drawing hands when they don;t have to." But admitted that it was time I lay off it for a while.
He called it the "Pleading Backhand" but I call it the explanatory hand. A gesture that a character makes when they making a point or explaining something. Most people talk with their hands so it feels natural to me. I know I do switch it up from tie to time but this is my unconscious go to hand position. It's definitely time to switch it up.
