This is a little study I did on the drawing of hands.  Hands are difficult to draw well, but not really.  You just got to remember that it’s Five fingers, not four or six.  I think the thing about drawing hands , at least for me, is not really ‘looking’ when drawing them.  Drawing is all about looking and seeing, and if ya don’t look, you ain’t gonna see anything.

So I’m trying to draw hands with a little more skill.   Cause if you get hands and feet right, everything in between just sorta falls into place.  I guess my downfall is, I try and get boobs and butts right, and draw in hands as an afterthought.

  1. Very Leonardo! But also very good. To me, hands are one of the ways to tell a good artist from a bad one–getting the proportion and positioning right is a challenge–I think your’s look fine. BTW that top one reminds me of those self-inflicted tattoos that I’m sure you saw a lot of in your previous life.
