Hand Model

Hi! I am a very beginner for programming in OpenGL, please help me. I’m now trying to write a program (in VisualC++) to track the human hand. In order to do so, I need to create a 3D hand model that I can control each finger’s joint. To clearify this, please take a look here http://www-sop.inria.fr/robotvis/pe…emos_hand.html. I would like to create a 3D hand model like this. Do I have to create such a model by other CG software like Maya? if so, how can I make use of such model in my program? I’m truly sorry, but I dont know much about modelling or programing using OpenGL. Please help. Thank you so much.
