Drawing humans [5/?]: Hands

Ah yes, hands are notoriously difficult to draw.  I’ll do what I can to help!

First off, below is a diagram of how I usually invision the shapes that make up the hand.  Proportion-wise, the longest finger is usually just a little bit shorter than the palm (though this can vary from person to person).

Here’s the hand again, in a different position.  Sometimes I find it helpful to think of the segments of the finger as box-like shapes, rather than cylinders.

Here’s a breakdown of my usual process while drawing hands:

Honestly, while I know it’s not the answer anyone wants to hear, the things that will help more than anything else are lots of practice and using references.  On the plus side, the good thing about hands is that references are easy to find!  Besides looking at your own hands for reference (which I definitely recommend), you can also look up images online.  The website Pixlovely even has a drawing practice tool specifically for hands.
