Drawing a Hand

Author Comments

This is a relatively small, and rather simplistic, tutorial on drawing hands. From this first tutorial, you will be shown a step-by-step to simple pose, and plenty of fbf hand animation to help you with a full turn-around hand. (just go through with next and back through the right-click menu)

edit: anyone that needs any more help with hands, feel free to pm me about your problem, and I will try to help out as much as I can.

i really suck in drawing in hands althought i think its the hardest part tho but then i just need to practice more

tomocles responds:

well, glad it could help you.

Artistic and Educational

A quote that can best describe it is:

"One only Masters when one makes Masters."

basically saying that you have a real talent, and it takes true talent to teach it to others so simply.

wonderful work

tomocles responds:

thanks bloodseeker. :) I was going for a simplistic tutorial, so I skipped out on long descriptions of the steps, which would be completely unneccessary, and instead chose to directly show it through animation. :)


lol RedApple, don't be such a douche. You didn't have to look at this if you already know how to draw hands. Obviously there are some of us who find this quite helpful.

Anyway, tomocles, the simplicity of your tutorial and your method made it so much more informative. Thanks for the tips, they were really helpful.

tomocles responds:

np, although I have the slightest urge to go more indepth into this later on. Maybe after the animating tutorial and the shading/coloring tutorial.

Very informative...

It helps alot thanks!

tomocles responds:

thanks, glad you liked it. :)

great stuff

although, stuff like the joints of the hands are a tad small and simplified. the simplistic style would work great in animation, as long as whomever uses it makes sure to keep volume, as you so welly did. good stuff, 4/5 8/10

tomocles responds:

I see your point, thanks for the critique. Also, thanks for the comment on my hand animating, but it is rarely seen for someone to keep hands that well drawn for long. I have a lot of trouble with that, or else I spend to long on each frame.
