How to Hand
A lot of people ask me how I make my hands, and thus the need for this tutorial arises!
(note, this comes from lots of research, other tutorials, and looking at my own hands)
1:Get your base down, which for the purpose of this tutorial is in orange and is a basic rectangleish shape.
2: See those cirlces and that triangle? That’s where your fingers and thumb go. Let’s go ahead and first define the knuckles and go ahead with the thumb (because it’s easy)
3: Now to add the fingers! Remember that each finger has three parts and thus (depending on how skinny your hands are) need definition. For the sake of this tutorial I am drawing my own hand and so my fingers are kinda spindly.
Looks kinda weird and crooked? That’s perfect, because no hand is going to be perfect like in anime or whatever. Now let’s try a side angle!
1: Remember the weird rectangle? That’s actually a 3d shape and should be treated as such. Your hands curve and bend depending on what their doing, so remember to translate that in your base.
2: Add your fingers! Remember that all of these things are 3d and if they look too close together, they probably are.
It’s all about trial and error. Something not looking right? Maybe try a different angle or maybe reposition your fingers!
