Hand Tutorial Notes

A lot of the basic notes on hands are here, but there is some advanced and unnoticed stuff too. I can't go over all the technical names of the human body, even though people have asked, because it's unnecessary and boring. Who cares those parts are called according to surgeons? What's important is knowing how to draw them. 

Try your best if you will to draw hands loosely. Keep the form in mind, start with malleable box-forms and build from there....

I don't know what tutorial to do next, but I think I'll actually create some art first.... I believe I am going to go back to sketch work for awhile and go from there.

Well, I hope this tutorial finds you well ---> PEACE!

Awesome'O. Thanks for checking it out. What surprised you about this one and not the others? 
Eva0707's avatar
You're welcome! Well this was the first one I have seen from you and the whole thing together-explanation, drawings, tips etc. just match together so well that it kind caught my attention. After that I checked some other too, and it was quality on same level as of this one. So, yep, I guess that it was the first one that really left impact on me! ^^

Most cool. I'm happy to hear it. 

--> I haven't posted much art on DA for awhile, but that's gonna end today. I start a new job doing some work for Nickelodeon on Tuesday, but before that takes over my life I figured I would take the time to post work from my old job. Stay tuned :D

No problemo. I'm happy with how it turned out, but I think I still have to do a piece with a lot of different hand poses for reference.

yesss please do

Your understanding of anatomy is literally the best thing ever; I'm so jealous! :'D
Frappe7's avatar
thank you so much, i realized human anatomy is really important to make drawings for hands especially more convincing or realistic
Very nice tutorials! I only wish I found them earlier :)

I find it much easier to draw the skeletal structure of the hand (or foot) and then fill it in...it's harder work but I at least make hands and feet look more convincing

I absolutely love your tutorials! This was well worth the wait. :)
