More hands... by moni158 More hands... by moni158
More hands stuff >: D
Key to drawing hard stuff? is simplifying it! cut it into shapes and remember the shapes and just readjust them when you want to body part to change position/angle etc.

Feel free to use/reference/trace etc.

( Note I have stored a lot of my old tutorials. I did this because I feel they are out of date and am intending to redo them all. If there are any you wish me to redo, just note me or leave a comment, also if there is anything else I do in my works that you would like to know how to do I would be happy to share techniques ;)

I wanted to thank you for posting so many wonderful tips and tutorials. I've added so many of them to my tutorials and references folder on here that it'd feel like spamming you if I left a comment on every single one of them, so I'm going to say how I feel here.

These are all so helpful for both new artists and those who are looking to refresh their memory on things that they might have degraded in over time due to focus on other parts of their art. The little details (like the pointing out the relative area of the bones on the inner and outer ankles) and the simple-form examples are always a joy, and make it so much easier to recall proportions and structure.

I'm especially fond of all your hand pieces. Over the years I've become pretty decent at hands, and it really makes me happy to see references and studies like these where others can see them. It's thanks to these types of things that I've been able to improve from 'well, it COULD be a flipper, or a package of hotdogs - we just don't know' to easily recognisable hands, and to ENJOYING the process of drawing them. 

In closing, thank you again for posting all of these. They're very, very much appreciated and have probably helped a LOT of people improve.

i always give my drawings "hitch hiker" thumbs, mostly when I'm drawing a lively or jumpy girl. It makes it look almost playful :)
cool ideas, i like the two parts to the thumb sketch.
