Link's Gauntlets/Gloves

Hey, I'm currently working on this cosplay version of Link:

http://media.photobucket.com/image/l...tw5/link-2.jpg

and I need some help with the gloves/gauntlets. I have a plan already for the rings around the wrists, but I need some help with the basic glove structure. I need the gloves to fit throughout the entire hand and forearm, and comfortably snug around the fingers. Any advice, pictures, or videos would be very appreciated!

This tutorial is great! It's based on this glove making tutorial. And this one also.
I'm making Link's gloves, though the TP version.

BTW, and idea if one should let the grain/outside or the skin/inside of the leather material be on the right side of the finished glove? What's most accurate?

Ah, thanks so much that's PERFECT! Thank you very much for that link.

And this is only my personal opinion, but the skin side of the leather seems more visually pleasing.

I'm done with mine! I ended up using the grain side out, as it gives the gloves a rougher look. But both sides will work.
