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.
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.

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.
