Tutorial: Hands by kitten-chan
-Okay - First let's go into a little bit of anatomy...

Hands tutorial? by Meuw
-Well, when I were in the car I sketched some hands, because I'm no good in it, And I wanted to improve, so I begun to train. And Now I felt like scan everything in, pick out a few and put them in some kind of tutorial I drew a bit hasty, not for that I'm the best in hands, but just so that I could show you how I draw hands!! So that you can come with tips and advices for what I could do and if there is some problems with the "tutorial" (my way to draw hands) Please help me.

Hand Tutorial: Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, and Part Five by manic-goose
-Five tutorials on hands. I was thinking about how there are certain basic angles for drawing hands and if an artist can learn these angles, just about any position is possible.

Tutorial - Drawing Hands by bidujador
-Ok, so my friend asked if someone could make a tutorial for drawing hands. I thought I'd give it a try. I can't say I'm entirely satisfied with it, and I know I left many things uncovered. But at least I hope it helps somebody.

Figure Tutorial 04- Hands by sprite-ariel
-This is my tutorial on how to draw hands. For some reason I like it the best.

Drawing Hands Tutorial by ArtUsagiChan
-Okay it's long overdue but it's here! At long last. The hands tutorial that I promised decades ago. I'm allowing downloads so that you can study it fervently wherever you go. Ha ha ha. It's really in-depth so I hope it's not too confusing. But yeah. Okay I'll stop now.

Hand Tutorial by shigure-kisune
-Well, actually, I did this because purplelemon asked me to. So here it is, a tutorial about hands. It's not the best in the world but it's a big help.

Hand tutorial by alexds1
-Another tutorial :B Theres a lot of text but I tried to make my system as clear as possible. As usual you can copy or use any of these drawings freely, but be sure to read the tut as well! As I recommend in it to ref from photos or real life over other people who might have made mistakes (not me of course, as I never make mistakes) (lol). Enjoy!


Foot tutorial by alexds1
-Yeah another one ;___; I had this percolating for a while and just got around to doing it all last night, which was a <strike>great</strike> awful idea. Despite having it basically scripted in my head before I started it still came out somewhat non-sequitor, sorry.

Drawing Feet Tutorial by PoiJanssen
-My first tutorial. Hope I'm being helpful! Since I learned how do draw feet last year, I wanna share that with you.

Tutorial: Feet and Shoes by kitten-chan
-Yup, the title says it all...and anything it doesn't say is in the tut.

Drawing Tutorial 009 Feet by uchuucacahuate
-Here it is, but I feel this is somewhat incomplete. Well, it sure isn't when you compare it to the hand one. This is actually like one of the parts of the body I haven't practiced a lot so I hope it's satisfactory. If it isn't then you'll just have to wait till I feel like doing a sequel.

Thanks for the tutorial.It is a big help, I always have trouble with fingers in different hand gestures.
ArtistsHospital Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2009

What helps me most is gestures. Actually, I've found that gestures help me with everything.

Use scratch paper, newsprint, or other very cheap paper that you won't hesitate to throw away when you're done. =)
