    The thumb is way too big, the problem with hands is that we think we know what they look like, but they are far more complex than we can recall. So you have to draw them from observation and concentrate on drawing what you see not what you know.

    Have a look at Mucha's hands for a simplified but effective direction.

    Your drawing of the fingertips and top 2 knuckles is off.  The nails are too big.
