How to Draw Hands:  Tutorial by ccRask How to Draw Hands:  Tutorial by ccRask
If this is in the wong category, please let me know XD

Okay, so, I've promised this thing to a lot of people at a lot of different times. And I've put it off, and put it off... and finally I was prodded enough to freaking do it! So here it is! My very own tutorial on how I draw hands. I tried to keep it simple while covering all the bases I could... and in doing so, pointing out and clearing up common mistakes I've come across.

I hope it helps! Feel free to download and share around as much as possible... credit to me is always welcome :) And as it says, if there's any questions you have, or something I didn't cover that you'd like to have cleared up, I will do my best to answer those for you!

If you fave this, thank you! I can't take the time to thank everyone one at a time, but I really appreciate it, and I hope it comes in... handy :iconderpplz:

adjfklajdla that makes me so happy, seriously!  That alone makes it all worth it.  Keep practicing-- and when you see a hand, whatever pose it might be, break it down into those shapes and start at the palm and go from there... Best of luck!

I am so terrible at drawing hands. Lol. Also, my third finger is way longer than my first one >.> but that's still a good guideline for finger lengths

Yeah, there are always variables like that in hands.  I didn't talk about it much in this tutorial because it was just for the basics, but yes-- some people have long fingers, others short; palm width and height can vary; fingernail shape varies largely; and so on.  The more you draw hands the more you'll notice these sorts of things :)
