Hello 👋🏽 just wanted to ask, as a struggling artist, for tips on drawing hands, expressions, bodies ya know, any tips are appreciated lol love your art! :D alt 2D is hot 😏(any 2D for that matter lol)
AHHH i’d never thought I’d be giving art advice but here ya go~
- For hands, use lots and lots of references! Also do some studies of hands you see in real life or practice some hands you find online! I’m still pretty bad at drawing hands but I’m practicing a lot more and it’s really paying off.
- For anatomy, I do a lot of figure drawings using this website. It allows you to pick the models and the amount of time you need for a drawing. So if you wanted to do a speedy drawing, you can set it to 30 seconds - 2 minutes! Or if you want to do something more detailed, you can change it to 5 mins to 10 mins. It’s a very helpful tool.
- As for expression, a mirror and exaggeration is your best friend. Exaggerate expressions when drawing cause it makes it much more clear to the person who’s looking at the art to tell whether a character is sad, happy, or in deep thought.
I hope these help and thank you so much!
