Hand Tutorial 1 by manic-goose Hand Tutorial 1 by manic-goose
This is the first of five tutorials on hands. I was thinking about how there are certain basic angles for drawing hands and if an artist can learn these angles, just about any position is possible.

Links to other hand tutorials:
Hand Tutorial 2, click here
Hand Tutorial 3, click here
Hand Tutorial 4, click here
Hand Tutorial 5, click here

As many of you know, I have other tutorials as well. The following is a link to the one that directs you to all the others.

If you have any questions about the tutorial, or any others I have up, feel free to ask. ^__^ Thank you and good luck.
