That One Overly Descriptive Hand Tutorial by Solstice-11 That One Overly Descriptive Hand Tutorial by Solstice-11
I hadn't made a tutorial in ages, and after asking my watchers and some friends, I deemed hands to be the bane of their existance. So here is my take on how I usually draw hands, or at least, the method I learned to draw them before until I was confident enough to stop using a complete step by step process. This is no where near a perfect or 'one' true method of drawing hands, and I'm not an expert, but I can at least share what I know~

I'm sorry I'm not the greatest at explaining things but I hope this helps you , even if its just a little!

Any of the hands you see on here are free to use for learning and referencing without any need to tell me or credit me. But again; unless you absolutely have to don't trace!! You'll never learn if you do ;A;

Thank you so much for this. I always have trouble with hands and they often put me off drawing certain things where I can't do the positions.

How are those hands so....so............perfect?! THEY'RE FLIPPIN' AETHERIAL (or is it ethereal? Eh. I prefer the other spelling). J-JUST--HOW?! XD *Flips out* ;A; I'm....so....far...........Oh, what do you suggest I do if I'm drawing on paper? (ICAN'TGETATABLETYETANDIFIUSEMYLAPTOPPADI'LLDISCONTINUEMYARTBECAUSEI'MTOOIMPATIENTD:) I mean, I have to draw a flippin' SMAAAALL hand with all those stupid guidlines and all that crapola....with a mechanical pencil and huge lead. ;A; Halp? xD I'm such an idiot =u=;

If you've only got pencil and paper try to draw as lightly as you can! , and if your lead is very big why not make a bigger hand to accommodate it? It seems like you might need a smaller pencil if you want to add tiny details to your practice !
