How to Draw HANDS and HAND POSES!




How to Draw a Hand

Two Methods:

Lots of people have trouble drawing hands, but it isn't too complicated once you know what to do. Drawing a realistic hand can mean either getting the proportions correct through measurement, or by using 3-dimensional shapes.

Steps

Measurements in Drawing a Hand

  1. Study and learn the measurements of the hand and its parts.
  2. The hand is about the same length as the face from chin to forehead.
  3. Start by sketching a rounded square.
  4. Sketch a triangle for the base of the thumb and the wireframe for the fingers.
  5. Sketch rectangles for each finger segment and spheres for joints to build the hand shape
  6. Draw the outline using the sketch as a guide.
  7. Erase and remove the sketch marks and add color.

Drawing Using Basic 3-Dimensional Shapes

  1. Sketch a box to serve as the main shape of the palm and add a wedge on one side to serve as the base for the thumb.
  2. Sketch a circle for each finger that will connect to the palm.
  3. Sketch cylinders and spheres to build the shape of each finger.
  4. Sketch the shape of the hand using the basic shapes as a guide.
  5. Draw the outline over the sketch to finalize the drawing.
  6. Erase and remove the sketch marks.
  7. Add color.

    What if I draw with both of my hands

    You mean ambidextrous? Then you're lucky! You can draw both hands easily, because you can look at either while you draw them.
    Thanks!

    Observe your hand carefully, taking note of where the light hits it, the shape, and tone of your hand, then try to draw that. Then practice!!

    How do I draw a female hand specifically?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    It's mostly the same, but on average, the hand and fingers will be a little thinner. Everybody's hands are different, though, and they will tend to differ depending on body type (e.g., thinner people will tend to have thinner hands; shorter people will tend to have shorter hands and fingers). The best way to really learn is to look at and copy photographs of different male hands and different female hands.
    Thanks!

    How can I draw a hand holding something?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    It is like a slightly open fist. So draw the base shape of the hand, then the item, and then the fingers around it. It gets easier as you understand the 3D shape of the hand, so if you want to draw many hands doing many things, it is better to draw your own, and find pictures of positions you cannot do yourself, and simplify them.
    Thanks!

    Most of the time you need a pencil, some paper and an eraser. If you get more experienced, you should buy a sketchbook if possible.

    Would the nails on a hand be the same if it was a lady?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    The nails depend on the character you're drawing. If it was a lady, then it really depends on the situation that the character is in or whether or not you want the person to have long or short nails. So just do what you want! Also, no, they probably would be a bit smaller on a woman's hand, but it doesn't really matter.
    Thanks!

Quick Summary

To draw a hand, start by lightly sketching a rounded square, then add a triangle for the base of the thumb and the wireframe for the fingers. Next, sketch rectangles for each finger segment and draw spheres for the joints. Remember to sketch lightly! Then, using your sketched outline as a guide, darken the lines to complete the hand and erase the sketch marks around your final drawing.

Did this summary help you?
  • Draw lightly in pencil so that you can easily rub out mistakes.
  • Look at your own hand, or someone else’s, throughout the process. It’ll appear different from the hand in the example illustrations, of course, but it’s a good reference point and it always helps to have a three-dimensional model of what you’re trying to put on paper.
  • Keep a steady hand, it will help!
