TIPS FOR DRAWING HANDS by cynellis TIPS FOR DRAWING HANDS by cynellis
EDIT:

Some of you have mentioned that the "hands are soft" thing is wrong and it only makes hands look unnatural. I don't disagree with you, however, I only wanted to point out that fingers shouldn't be square or too pointy. To make it clear, here's an example of what I mean:
sta.sh/083tiemh96f

Please don't hate me for not being clear enough, I'm just a 17 years old loser with a laptop who accidentally made a tutorial that quite unexpectedly became popular :'D


I was getting tired of people asking me how the hell do I draw hands, so I made this (´・ω・`)

I hope someone finds it useful <3

♥/REBLOG THIS ON TUMBLR

and i will love you forever <3 ;u;

You're not a loser. So don't worry about it. As for the soft part, I think all female hands are soft, compare to mans which has more complexity in it. Thanks for sharing this tutorial. Learning how to draw hands here as well.

Slight problem...my character has more of lines for his and her fingers, and a circle for their palms. How do I form them as hands?

Actually, depending on artistic style and the type of character (usually males), I think sometimes a 'hard' looking hand is justified; it's not necessarily wrong (unless trying to be realistic), not necessarily right, but it helps add variation to characters. Of course the example you link to looks funny with a boxy hand - the character has a lot of feminine curves, and the angular hands are out of place and make her look manly. But if you were an artist with a more exaggerated, cartoony style drawing boxy macho dudes, then drawing soft hands might look kinda odd.

Ooooh! I've always drawn hands like the second no no example and thought, hmm.. that doesn't look right.
Now I'm going to change the way I draw it to the "correct" way you drew in this tutorial. My hands kind of look better now. Thanks. :D

My first thought was "Great now I will know how to draw hands better!" My second thought was "Is that Handsome Jack drinking a milkshake?"

So yeah, this is cool on two levels.
