It is very difficult to draw things, people, and figures that are foreshortened. In this tutorial, I will show you how to draw a man punching a fist towards you, the viewer. The extended arm and fist are in a foreshortened view, as you can see. I will guide you through the many steps it takes to draw this man.
Hands are one of the most difficult parts of the human body to draw. But have you tried drawing them as basic shapes first. Basically fingers are cylinders or rounded rectangles. If you draw hands by blocking them out or sketching them out first, you will have a much easier time drawing these tricky buggers. Below you will also find hands reference sheets so you can look at hands in many different poses and positions when you need help drawing them. Make sure to Bookmark this Page.
