Handy Dandy Hands by akszirules Handy Dandy Hands by akszirules
Idk if this is supposed to be a tutorial, a ref sheet, or a reminder to myself. I just got 2 jointed hand models, and I've been trying to get a better feel for drawing hands. I used to hate putting hands in pictures and tried to hide them as much as possible because I was so bad at them, or rush through it because they were so hard. And I still do sometimes. But it's a lot easier when you have a reference, and drawing dynamic hand poses can actually be really awesome! This was fun. :) I hope it can be helpful to someone else, and that I didn't just state the obvious, interspersed with lame hand puns. Really, I don't think I said anything you can't find in every other hand tutorial, but anyway....
I'd like to do a tutorial on purpose sometime! Any suggestions? Coloring? Expressions? More hands? Anything?
Or am I even good enough to do a tutorial? :iconemoluigiplz:

Also, I apologize for my handwriting. XP

This is actually very helpful. I have been trying to draw people more, but hands are the bane of my existence! lol. I really need lots and lots of references to make me better and take the time to draw hands well. So thanks for this!

No problem, glad you like it! :) I have an entire folder of hand references on my computer, too. There are a lot of really helpful ones around deviantart.
