Sometimes people ask me why I use such insanely meticulous and yet unnecessary measurements. The reason? Well, although I personally don't need to measure so incredibly carefully, it's not only extremely beneficial knowing the exact location (hence allowing me to make more accurate estimates), but because it's for your benefit as well.
I've seen a lot of tutorials that gave a nice explanation, but still forced me to estimate the distances and sizes. Those tutorials, while somewhat helpful, didn't allow me to improve my anatomy at all. I always wished there was some kind of exact comparison, some kind of exact tutorial, for me to use.
Now that I'm older and able to take measurements to myself, I used six different hands and studied them in order to come up with an approximate average. Although hands differ from person to person, understanding this approximate average would've helped me a lot in my earlier days. Since I can't find any tutorial with exact measurements, I can only make one myself.
