Many novice artists had been grumbling about how hard is it to draw the hands. Naturally! The hands are usually considered the hardest part of any body to be drawn and even many professional artists out there had some difficulty with them.
Like everything else you draw, the foor also consist of basic forms. I break it down into 3 parts. 1) a cylinder for the shin 2) a half a peanut for the front 3) A roundish shape for the heel
Here is the first in a series of hand tutorials. This first step is important to understanding how the hand is constructed and were the pivot points are. Once you are comfortable with the proportions of the hand it will be easier to draw it in different positions. For now let's concentrate on the basic "Spread Fingered" hand. Follow along and study your own hand as you go.

Welcome to Manga University’s “How to Draw” Tutorials: “How to Draw Hands, by Koda Tadashi”.
Many Manga styles are based on quite natural drawing, so you need to start off by drawing quite realistically. Once you're confident with drawing hands and feet, you can ajust the style - making it more realistic or simplified as needed.
A little disclaimer... this is how I draw hands and feet, I don't declare these to be accurate. Anyway. As long as you see the basic shapes of the hand and foot, you're well on your way to learning how to draw them even without reference.
