Relaxed hands by moni158 Relaxed hands by moni158
I haven't made any tips sheets in a long time ( Mainly because I've covered everything I'm comfortable drawing and/or showing others )

I've found plenty of resources on drawing hands in dynamic poses etc but the thing I find I need most is very relaxed/ natural hand positions etc 

So heres some stuff I've learnt, hope its useful :D And if you're also having trouble with relaxed hands, get a mirror and look at your own hands and try draw them, or find some references etc. Real life is the best teacher.

You don't mind if I use this for practice? If I post something, I'll cite this deviation.

We see a lot of reference about hands but never in relaxed or natural position. This tutorial helps a lot so.
