Firstly, start your hand drawing, that watches some anatomy tip! It’s really helpful because most of the artist’s weak point is the hand drawing, it’s always difficult when you draw your figure. Well, start with the anatomy, and you will understand better the hand drawing!
Here some bigger size anatomy about your fingers you can see the bones well, and the main parts.
Maybe it does not seem like an important thing, but when you draw hands in a bigger size here some help for the nail types, you can choose the best for your character! 🙂
And here some extra help, so you can see well, which hand type is good for your character’s age!
Firstly, here the style of a realistic hand! You need to start every style from the realistic style, that you don’t do mistakes.
And now, here the comic hands. It’s just some sample. You don’t see a too big difference between the realistic and the comic style. (Mainly in the American comics, like Marvel and DC.
In the cartoon style, the difference is bigger than the realistic one. But the cartoon style isn’t only this style, just one example, what I drew. It’s always helpful, if you look around the cartoon’s style, that you can see which one, what you like, and where you can start to create your own style for the hand drawing.
If you have an animal character, it’s helpful for you too! (Mainly when your animal character walk on two legs, his/her first two legs is more like arms and hands, so you need to draw them like human hands, just with some different part).
And now, the last part of the hand drawing is the poses, it will be three-part because you can draw a lot of hand pose! Firstly here some simple.
And now, here some more difficult type, in other view and perspective too!
These are really difficult, but not impossible! When you start to draw difficult hands like these, look around on the net for reference pictures, these are always helpful.
Let’s start the “How to draw Hands” part! Now, start to draw the baselines. This is helpful, that you can draw the base form of the hand.
Firstly draw the baselines of your hand’s upper and base part!
Now draw the base form of your forefinger!
And now the thumb’s baselines and form, now you can see well how will be the hand’s pose in the picture!
And now the middle finger’s base form!
The next step is the ring-finger’s base form!
And now your last finger is the little finger’s base form! And you are done with the hand’s base form too.
Now draw the nails on the fingers, where you can see on your picture.
And draw the little details, where you can see the parts on your hand and the fingers.
