The actual settings you use may depend on your scale. So if it's too much or too little, just undo, adjust the number and try again.

We'll select the four faces for each finger now and extrude them out a length.

If the tool looks a little odd to you it's because I'm using NEX and you probably aren't. The green face is the auto highlight. When using NEX I can easily extrude faces by hold CTRL+ Shift and MMD. Again just how a little short cut can save me the time of digging through menus.

Next, we'll do the same thing for the thumb.

Now is as good a time as any. I'm going to edge loop split the height of the whole model. I use MJ Poly Tools to do this. Again I have a hot key set up so I simply select and edge and hit a couple buttons on the keyboard.

We will extrude out the thumb a little bit more before the next step.

Hi Sean, I went through your tutorial and found it good, but a bit difficult. Can you make a video version of it? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6ogucWv8V0
