How do even draw hands?
To be honest with you, most of the time I draw hands I don’t really have a specific process
aka idk what I’m doing goodness help. Here’s some hands I drew quickly
Quick pointers on things I’ve learned while drawing hands
- I usually go with a diamond shape for the outline, squares and rectangles are easiest for me in terms of palms and fingers, but I usually use curves to help the fingers feel a bit looser.
- Idk if the purple shows up that well but that little curve of the hand? Helps to actually make them look like hands like 85% of the reason my hands actually look like hands is because of that line I’m pretty sure.
- If you want to do a specific hand gesture, try it out yourself! Look in the mirror, see how your fingers curve and whatnot. Most of the time when I’m drawing I’ll do the gesture just to see where my thumb is pointing lol.
- Sit down and just draw hands! If you know you struggle with hands, dedicate a page or two in your sketchbook just for hands. Study people around you or try different gestures with your own hands. They don’t have to be perfect! Last semester during class I would always trail off my notes drawing hands. Sometimes I’d even look at my professor’s hands and draw them as fast as I could before the professor changes position LOL.
I hope this helps! If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask again
