DIY UMEZU GWASHI HAND

Somehow in my previous guide to Kazuo Umezu's page, I missed one of the most fundamentally awesome bits: materials and instructions for creating your own OVERSIZED GWASHI HAND!



These files are taken from the GWASHI page of Umezz's site (in Japanese). Click the images below for the printer-ready oversized hands.


SABARA HAND


GWASHI HAND 1


GWASHI HAND 2

Being the generous dude that he is, Umezu also created three How-To comics for your own GWASHI hands. It's basically:
1. Print it out (duh) on 2 sheets (or bigger)
2. Glue it to something study
3. Tape a string to the back of the hand
4. Be careful when using scissors (ohhhh, you'll see).

When you're done, it should look like this on the back:

Yes, exactly. Those are some SERIOUS INSTRUCTIONS right there. That's a scene straight out of Left Hand of God, Right Hand of the Devil.

HEED THEM WELL!

I like how in the photo of the back of the finished hand it implies that Umezu's workspace is cluttered in vintage 70s Makoto-chan dolls. It pleases me to think of him brushing them out of the way, then laying down a sheet and doing a draft of something like Fourteen.
