How to draw hand video tutorial learn step by step basic


How to draw hand video tutorial learn step by step basic.

Now back to the basic a little bit. I have so many emails, youtube comment, facebook, etc. asking me if I could do a drawing hand tutorial. Well, it's been a long and lots of requests. So here we go, this video is for you guys.

Other than faces (facial expression), hands are probably the second most expressive and intricate part of the human form. So hands in general should receive careful attention.
Aside from the head, they are usually the only other exposed part of the body and can be useful in communicating without verbal. Hands are equally as expressive in gesture, emotion and action. Because of the complexity of joints, masses and planes, along with their expressive nature, the hands can, and usually are, the hardest thing to learn on the entire human form.

But in this tutorial, in my opinion, you don't have to draw every single detail of the hand because as a concept artist or illustrator, you will hardly ever just draw and paint hand by itself. So this tutorial will demonstrate the basic structure and simplified hand drawing. More detail, doesn't necessary means better. The accurate depiction, proportion, and expression without over doing it, to me, is more important than putting a bunch of wrinkles, bumps, etc. Get the hand shape and proportion correct with the minimal use of lines, then you can go ahead and add detail as you please, with thinner line detail.

Also this tutorial, I'm demonstrating form of female's hand. So listen carefully. You have to be precise, clean and make it look as graceful as you possibly could.

The ones in red are construction lines then the one in black are flesh out after the basic shape of the construction lines drawing.
