Hands practice

by Rosenhips, May 13th 2019 © 2019 Rosenhips

Hello all,

I've been following the class mode for almost 2 weeks now, and I feel a bit more confident with drawing hands. But if I want to draw them from imagination, then becoming too reliant on observation will hold me back. What are your thoughts? Feedback and critique are appreciated.



Well, if you're afraid of becoming to reliant on reference photos, there's this technique I use for full body drawings. Try to practice the pose (of the hand, body, etc.) 2-3 times, the draw from memory. After 10-30 reps, depending on your skill level, you'll soon have it ingrained in your memory. I'd also look into watching some tutorials, just to see different techniques.
