I wanted to draw this tutorial for a long time. In fact drawing was the easiest part. Explaining important things in English was very challenging for me. Sorry for all language mistakes. I hope that it's understandable enought although my language problems :). I hope it'll help sombody.

Time: one afternoon.

this is no tutorial for how to draw hands this is detailing hands and fingers

So so useful! Hands are my favorite things to draw. Most people say they are most difficult to draw but I don't agree. I have trouble with the detailing such as the lines in your palms or the crease made when move your fingers. Any suggestions? Do you mind taking a look at some of my drawings and giving some tips? It would be so helpful!

:) I'm glad you like the tutorial (sorry for answering so late). I'll think about another tutorial, but it depends on how much time will I have. Unfortunately, drawing is just a hobby for me... after 8h at work I prefer watching a film or read a book than drawing. That is sad...

I hate to say it, this isn't exactly a tutorial on how to draw hands, its more like how to shade hands. :/ When you first begin, you already have a hand drawn.

Maybe, you're right. It's rather something - how I draw hands. I'm can't make tutorial how to draw good sketch of hand, because sometimes I have a lot of problems to sketch a hand right.
