Inspired by One Piece by Eichiro Oda.
Fiction has many examples of humanoid animals - things like lycans or werewolves, cat/dog/rabbit folk, etc.
My question is this: what the Paws will forms/look like or what remains of the paw look like if they have human hands and fingers instead? Will their fingers form a paw too, or will the pads be near the palm, or would it appear random, like a blister or calluses which is more on skin contact/friction or pressure (because iam not sure are calluses is basically what a paw is since from google even paw can form calluses) ? is there any kind of paw/pads lines or paw muscle anatomy in animal hands?
I'm assuming that the humanoid animal would still have thick fur unlike humans since the paw is their way to sweat or cool down aside from their tongue or mouth (but if they can retain a paw structure even if they develop human-like skin, please explain how this might be achieved).
I imagine having/retaining a paw/pads structure would make it hard for the creature to grasp things with one hand unlike normal humans do, especially the tools shape/design for normal human hand grasping, but i ask anyway maybe i was wrong (just want confirmation).
knowing the biology or scientific/realistic anatomy forms of the paw/pads if they have human hand can help me to see and create a better grasping shape for their tools.
