Contact Point of Fingers

In the hand images, we’ve circled the ends of the fingers but we haven’t specified the contact point. The fingers should make contact near the end. You should not be directly on the tips of the fingers, or below the knuckle closest to the end of your fingers. Expand the video below so you can have a clear visual of finger contact.
