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.

What is the process you use to draw hands? Do you do the fingers first, or do you use lines, what?

Hands on hips, yay! It's my favorite way to draw females, but I find it so difficult to make it look right, no matter how many hours I spend in front of the mirror ^^ Thanks a bunch!

Would you ever consider doing a tutorial  for the lower half of the male body? (v-line /hips/legs etc)  That would be so wonderful *^* !! 
Your tutuorials are so easy to understand!

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