Hand Tutorial -Tips+Reference-

Published:

Notes: I suggest drawing all the hands here (just for practice)....and see if you guys improve or not =D;;. I feel like I improved just by compiling all these drawings xD.

Oh, and on another note, never try to hide the hands when drawing a picture. After all, forcing yourself to draw them on a body is the best way to practice ^^.

Finally, never be afraid to use references. Use your own hands if you must (unless your hands are like mine...fat and chubby and generally unappealing), or take a picture of someone's hand. Imagination and memory can only take the technical side of drawing to a certain point until you have drawing enough to master it.

Sorry, it's a bit big. These hands were compiled in a week's time through observing people and drawing hands in life-drawing :D. The shading's really rough, but hopefully it shows a bit more structure and how to shade the hand =)

Also, I'm not a professional (yet xD;; ), so there still may be mistakes in my drawing. but I tried my best ^^.

People has been asking me for a tutorial and I've been meaning to do one for...the longest time, ever.
I know there are a lot of hand tutorials out there, but since it's my favourite body part to draw, I though, "why not?". I personally can't get enough of looking at different tutorials on doing stuff, so....yah =P.



I hope it's helpful even a little. The references at the bottom are for everyone to look at and, well, reference, if need be.

I do not know yet if drawing these will help me in the long run. However, I appreciate the effort put in trying to teach noobies like me. Thank you, plus, it looks very beautiful.
