36 Hands by WatermelonOwl 36 Hands by WatermelonOwl
Another reference! :3
So I drew mostly anime-like hands, some cartoony and some realistic.
The realistic ones have a simpler version next to it because... i dont know. it might help? because its simper? >v>
Feel free to reference from these.

Tips on drawing hands:
- Length of fingers = Length of palm
- When finger bend, they bend towards the center of the palm
- The tip of the thumb is where the bottom of the middle finger begin (other fingers begin below that)
- Reference from your own hand

I'll also do a clothing folds reference some time because it was requested before. And maybe an ice/crystal tutorial with SAI! BD
You can request a tutorial. If you want. I'll study it a bit and make it if I think I can. >v>

Thank you for making this.
This is really cool.:happybounce: 
I sometimes struggle at drawing realistic hands and feet, too, but I'm steadily improving. :D (Big Grin)

Learning how to draw anything is mainly just looking, copying, a lot, and eventually you'll be able to draw it confidently
Otherwise known as practicing. XD
