looks cool

 

always remember to work at small size, put the model far away in the display and use the game point of view and relative size -1st person shooter, 3rd person, isometric... - to add the finals details.

Is it made of wood or is it a hand of some creature? The stitches indicate that it's the latter, but if so, then if to treat the claws as phalanx distalis, then phalanx proximalis bones are way too flat (at least on that shot) when compared to your model's phalanx media bones. Some more volume, to show the bones are there, would make the sculpt look much better, I think.
The transition area between the fingers and the main part of the hand looks too harsh. Adding some volume and definition would be beneficial, me thinks.

Lastly, the claws could use some more detail. Did you use reference images to sculpt them? If not, then I strongly suggest to do so. (Millenium...) Falcon's, lion's or tiger's claws would rock'n roll here. :)

Thank you guys! :D

 

It will be kind of a dried skin kind of texture! and yes, i think so too!

I'mma try to add some volume without loosing too much detail already lol! But it is greatly appreciated! :) I was going more of a "metal sword wrapped in skin" cuz of how i made the skin look on the pomel of the sword, The place where the fingers meets the hilt, was thinking on making it like some sort of webbed "skin" between each fingers, but i cant manage to make it look good lol

Historical footnote: Apache chief Geronimo covered his tomahawk in the forearm skin of an unfortunate stagecoach driver. The fingers of the thumb and middle finger grip the stone.
