Hands are probably the hardest parts of the body to draw. That is why I have decided to add a few hand drawing tutorials. In this tutorial I will show you how to draw a hand gripping an item. The fingers and thumb are wrapping around this object and firmly holding it in place. I will guide you thru the step by step process of drawing this hand holding the object.
Today I will show you methods to drawing illustrated hands and fingers. Although I call this a Manga / Anime drawing lesson, it applies to cartooning and illustration as well. The following tutorial includes several approaches to drawing hands, fingers, as well as the differences between male and female hands. Have fun.

The cartoonist must know the construction and appearance of the different types of hands before he can use them effectively in a cartoon. Possibly the best way to learn to draw hands in the hundred and one positions that they can assume, is by using your own hands as models and sketching them in all the different positions you can think of. However, there are so many different types of hands, that I have shown a number of them for you to study.
