HANDS training by Washu-M HANDS training by Washu-M
You know... I really don't like drawing hands because they take too long compared to other body parts... feet as well but at least you can put the feet into a shoe and stuff ^^;

That's why I'm always training to draw them faster... :D

thought anyone would like to take a look...
In some of them I used a little perspective. :)

Hope it may help to see how I do the rough sketch of it's form :love:

see ya!

I'm going to be staring at these studies for ages.
Is is alright if I use them as Research material for my own obsession of re-drawing floating cartoon limbs?
Chimera-Fox Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2011  Student General Artist
hands and feet are evil...... -_-
Crystalkit1 Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2011
I couln't agree with you more :cry:
Chimera-Fox Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2011  Student General Artist
hehe, glad I'm not the only one :)
Crystalkit1 Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2011
Haha, probably not! I just want to die when I'm drawing hands and feet! Hell, I have a shitty time drawing arms and legs too :XD:
Chimera-Fox Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2011  Student General Artist
haha! same, I usually cut off at about the waist! ;P
I typically kill paper when "attempting" hands/feet..... -.-
Crystalkit1 Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2011
Haha, i know what you mean! Usually I don't get that far :ashamed: But I will learn to do it properly :iconiwinplz:
Chimera-Fox Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2011  Student General Artist
At one point I didn't want to tread that ground, either :)
But I sucked it up and forced myself to do it :salute:
So I guess it's all in the practice, huh?
Crystalkit1 Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2011
Yup, let's hope it does us some good :XD:

I suck at drawing hands. I have yet to find a simple way to start them.
isenard Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2011
very helpful .. ty
SaitouuRyuuji Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
I like this, it'll help me with drawing hands.
elizabeth-s Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I know people might jump on me for saying this, but this looks useful as reference for other people (pose, maybe if it's a hard-to-find pose, but I'm thinking more the structure built with the 'basic shapes').

I always get stuck on the palm. I never seem to get the shape right and this looks like it might help. c:

Nice practice. :o
billythepsychic Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I hate hands too. My avatar is the only even semi-good picture of a hand I've ever drawn. (that's why it's my avatar. I'm proud to death of that thing)
takytoh Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2011
This is really helpful!
DestatiDreamXIII Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist

Takeo212 Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2011
Nice angles. You do hands really well~
I'll be sure to use this for when I'm practicing, Thank You! :glomp:
OliBolson Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2011
Yeah, great results!
FrankAndAshton Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This will help me as well :D Lovely piece!
Timmy22222001 Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2011
Well anycase a huge thanks is in order for the assistance, like you say the hands are a tricky thing to do but man what a feeling when your able to communicate them with the rest of the body.

These poses of the hands definitely deal with a number of challenging angles and I see you even did some perspective shots as well. That as well as your sketches really will help out a boatload, thank you kindly Washu-M!

Cavatica Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2011
I see a lot of people saying "Thanks! I'll totally use this as a reference!" and I kind of want to advise against it. I mean, this is a wonderful drawing and as a reference for setup and form, yes, it's terrific! But as an anatomy reference, you're losing something in translation if you don't draw from life where possible. I'd encourage people to draw from their own hands, or even from photographs if they can, before drawing from a drawing. :>

But these drawings ARE very useful and I'm definitely adding to my own faves. :D
Genisay Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hands! Those are always one of the hardest things to draw, even though they can be fun too. It's always great to be able to find static references in complex and complicated gestures.

Wonderful work! I love you!
RoseRoselli Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2011
Thanks for this tutorial ...I will use it for reference!!
