Hand Tutorial -Tips+Reference- by Qinni Hand Tutorial -Tips+Reference- by Qinni
Notes: I suggest drawing all the hands here (just for practice)....and see if you guys improve or not =D;;. I feel like I improved just by compiling all these drawings xD.

Oh, and on another note, never try to hide the hands when drawing a picture. After all, forcing yourself to draw them on a body is the best way to practice ^^.

Finally, never be afraid to use references. Use your own hands if you must (unless your hands are like mine...fat and chubby and generally unappealing), or take a picture of someone's hand. Imagination and memory can only take the technical side of drawing to a certain point until you have drawing enough to master it.

-----------
Sorry, it's a bit big. These hands were compiled in a week's time through observing people and drawing hands in life-drawing :D. The shading's really rough, but hopefully it shows a bit more structure and how to shade the hand =)

Also, I'm not a professional (yet xD;; ), so there still may be mistakes in my drawing. but I tried my best ^^.

People has been asking me for a tutorial and I've been meaning to do one for...the longest time, ever.
I know there are a lot of hand tutorials out there, but since it's my favourite body part to draw, I though, "why not?". I personally can't get enough of looking at different tutorials on doing stuff, so....yah =P.



I hope it's helpful even a little. The references at the bottom are for everyone to look at and, well, reference, if need be.

THANK YOU! 
I've looked at several hand tutorials but your explanations are much easier to follow while being informative without being a novel.

I never noticed how the fingers curve more as the hand is lifted to be 90 degrees to the forearm. That's very interesting! This is a really good and quick tutorial that I'm sure will help me (I hate drawing hands as most people do)
