Hands! by Bethelina Hands! by Bethelina
Back in December when I should have been studying for finals, I decided to conquer my fear of drawing hands. Some of these were referenced from photos (I can't remember which ones, sorry!) and some from my own hands.

So feel free to use these as references, I suppose. Though I wouldn't recommend that, as the best thing is to look at real hands themselves. (Plus, I'm probably not anatomically accurate. >,<)

So have fun. And enjoy the included tiny. ;P

btw, if you know how to draw hands, could you show/maybe something with how to draw crossed arms? :iconbegplz:
it would REALLY help me out, since that is the favorite pose vegeta/shadow like to do

As it happens, that is one of the things I still have difficulty drawing myself. ^^; However stock artists have many helpful poses you can use as references. *SenshiStock is one of my favorites. Check out her gallery. Hope that helps. ;)

That's not too bad. And since you're looking for more cartoony examples of arms and hands, I'm afraid I can't help you there. ^^;

Hands are tricky because there's so many little bones. Why must they be so difficult!? :ohnoes:

Thanks! Yeah, they still give me problems as well. Especially when I have to actually draw them connected to a body. :P

Ugh yes... I often take photos of my own hands if I just can't get them right... and then I'm stuped about what kind of wierd poses hands can make XD

Yeah, sometimes when I see a photo of a hand I can't help but think, "Wow, that's such a weird position. If that were hand drawn, I would have thought it was anatomically incorrect."

Biali Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2013
exactly! The human body is so weird! I do gesture drawing sometimes, and I am amazed about how strange some poses look.
