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.

Lightly draw an oval and a sideways capital letter ‘D’ shape.
Draw a few ovals and a sideways capital letter ‘D’ shape…as seen above.
