In this drawing guide, we will tell you how to draw a hand. This is usually the hardest part of the body to draw. In this guide, we tried to decompose this difficult task into a few simple steps.
What is needed in order to draw a hand:
- Coloring supplies (optional)
So, if everything is ready, then scroll down the page to start the drawing tutorial on how to draw a hand.
So, we’ll start drawing a hand by depicting an asymmetrical pentagonal shape. Place this shape in the center of your paper or where your character’s hands should be in your drawing.
Now we will outline the outlines of four fingers. Pay attention to the size and position of each finger. You can make it a little easier for yourself if you draw a vertical line in the center of the paper as a guide.
In this step we sketch out the outlines of the opposite toe. You can see that the base of the thumb is quite wide and there is a slight but noticeable taper upwards.
Now we will add the outlines of the nails. You may notice that the nails on the different toes have different shapes and sizes.
We always highlight a special step so that you can evaluate your picture, find all the errors, and correct these mistakes with the eraser. Let’s do this because the next action is to work with colors.
Small details always form an overall impression. In this step, we will add small folds of skin that are located on the fingers and the back of the hand.
Use whatever color you like to color this hand. Remember that any skin color is truly beautiful.
What else can you do to make your hand drawing even more interesting:
- Depict a table, or another surface under the hand
- Add shadows and highlights to the nails
- You can try drawing a ring or bracelet on the wrist.
