Guide - Hands

had a busy weekend hahaha pardon the multiple uploads!

here's the hands guide / tutorial that some people were asking for 
it's not meant to be super comprehensive; more like "guide at a glance" haha
I don’t claim to have perfect anatomy; still learning too! p: The guide is also applicable to the majority, but as always there are various types and proportions when it comes to hands!
**Download for full size
Feel free to use any of these hands as references, though I highly recommend finding photos of real hands or even your own hands to reference. References are our best friend kaomoji set 2 60/67 

may not be online for the next couple of days, stressful things happening irl kaomoji set 1 14/19  

will be back!! thanks for viewing and feel free to ask for more guides, not sure what else to do next haha

parr #2 of hand guide!
Guide - Hands #2 by AngelKite 


I sometimes take pictures of my own hands or my siblings' hands when I can't find a suitable reference online xD use what's around you ;^)

some pics with hands referenced from my siblings haha (and even then it does not always turn out well ;u; )

Great help and tutorial, I can use it as a photographer, too :D (Easier to explain nice and natural hand poses to models. Most people simply cannot pose their hands and keep them in strange flexed ways when being photographed :D )
AngelKite's avatar
Oh haha that's great! :D and that's an interesting perspective from a photographer, thanks for sharing :D
HoremWeb's avatar
You're most welcome! :)
This is something that most photographers won't know if you ask them. They either avoid strange poses by instinct or fall into the tar pit of stupid hand poses :D I learn to play the piano, and most that I know about nice looking hands came from the piano lessons. And partly from a famous Hungarian photographer who mostly worked in California, Martin Szipal—he went nuts if one presented him a shot with hands, except the perfect poses. :)
