They say that how hands are drawn is a good indicator of the technical expertise of the artist.
Hands are definitely the most varied parts of the body, capable of the most diverse configurations. Add in the always-challenging angles and forshortening and you have a very difficult hill to climb!
My own hand-drawing is not strong, but the few times I've gone the extra mile, constructed the extremity and/or used a photo reference or two, the results have been very satisfying. Every so often I work on it. A bit at a time.
After working on drawing eyes for the past few weeks, I'm looking at hands more and more. I'm sure strangers are uncomfortable with the way I stare at their hands all the time.
They're BIGGER than I've tended to draw them, I notice. That's the main thing I've seen…
I may have more work to do.
What do you say? Are hands the toughest part of drawing people? How do you grab ahold of this challenge?
And for your efforts, give yourself a…yeah. Y'know.
