Hand Anatomy Drawing Practice by Age-Solo Hand Anatomy Drawing Practice by Age-Solo
Title: n/a
Artist: Steven Sanshwe
Date: 29 November 2003

I was just practicing some hand anatomy, i'm really bad at anatomy in general and if i want to learn how to draw something >>> i just see if i can find a copy model or something to trace, so i can break it down into sub sections for drawing dynamic poses next time. Um this is my hand, but yeah i still am not sure how to draw hands properly. Can anyone send me a link to a good tutorial or something?

u don't need anatomy lessons, this is full good!!! Unless i have a pic to use for reference, i'm crap at drawing hands!!!

Something u could try is to head down to a library and get the Human Body series put out in the Courier Mail, that may just help u!!!

lol >> the good thing about drawing hands is that when you draw it up close they always look real good. But when you draw them as a part of a whole drawing..well they are barely noticed >> that just sucks >> and i hate drawing hands in small spaces >> can never get anything done. Lately.. (as in the past 3 months) i haven't drawn anything .. too lazy ha ha ha >> thanks for the comment though. Thanks for the tips too >>

that's a good idea! But I think studying the bones and muscles of the hand would work even better. I bought an anatomy book recently and there's 1/4 of the book devoted to hands: it's more complicated than it looks! U should go to the library and borrow a book on anatomy!

Yeah >> it woud be an idea to go on bones first, but in anime drawing i think you don't really have to be as precise, unless you're doing say a very specific shot of the hand. I think i would eventually need to go through books and things when i begin to go a bit more complex with my drawing >> Actually i was going to buy a book on anatomy drawing book ($15) it was really big and had a lot of things in it >> ahh library? hmm.. thanks for the comment.

This is very cool! I'm approaching drawing stuff by using refs to practise on :) Nice to see someone else trying to get anatomy right too!

Yeah >> anatomy is annoying, and trying to get a lot of detail into small areas is difficult too >> ahh i have tons of drafts on my DA >> thansk for the comment and the watch.

thats really good idea!!! I use the sausage method>.< but hands are waay hard to do.
Age-Solo Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2003
I don't like sausage method, i prefer the ball and cylinder method. Basically ball/sphere shapes for joints and cylinders for middle fill parts. I use this because it has a more 3 dimensional feel to it. Also with guidelines for finger movements. But yeah after all that i still can't draw them as well as i want to. Thanks for the comment.
