The 5 Hands Workshop
« on: May 27, 2016, 05:20:41 PM »
THE FIVE HANDS WORKSHOP

Spoiler
Spoiler


- Draw 5 or more hands per productive post (Lesser amount of sketches won't be counted. No skill level barriers)
- Comment on earlier drawn hands. (This is not a workshop to just showcase your own progress! Talk with others)


The monsters. The beasts. The bane to every artist. And yet so expressive, so useful in a drawing, and so needed in manga in any form or art. Hands!

There will be a grander Workshop with tutorials from the more pro members and something with a greater information dump, but I wanted to keep things simple and effective so that members can try it every time they want.

Please, ask questions, and please, give critique, encouragement and tips if you have any!

Hands can be so difficult.
I still have to look at models or even take pics of my own hand to get proper angles >..<;
I'm happy to contribute though, so here you go~

As for commenting on previous hands, Razi's look quite anatomically correct :D

Thanks for participating so quickly people! You seemto know how to construct them Razi. The peace sign, the fist and the hands in the middle look well done.

Love the clean linework there Froggy. Pen holding gestures are my favourite, but I sort of like the top left one for a reason. Has a sense of motion to it or something.

Good stuff!

Here are mine



Just some studies from Bleach. I love how expressive Kubo's hands are.

Thank you! Its a method I came across back when I was researching "tuts/how to". It's helped me a lot~
I like how your hands have a motion to them.

Practicing hands from Ashley Wood's comics and a little bit of Knight Run, a Korean webcomic.

Ahaha, I tried to use lego's first post as some reference. Also, don't worry, man, hands and feet are both hard to draw.

Man, some of you are doing this with contour lines :ohmy: and I'm sitting here with all my guidelines hanging out. Ah, well, maybe someday I'll get to the point of not having to rely so heavily on them.

Double post, whoops!

That day was not day today, it seems.

I will give a generally helpful piece of advice since I used it here and made note of it: if you're like me and you look at references sometimes to help you learn to draw things, after you have drawn what your eye sees in that reference image, mentally mirror it, without using mirror on your viewing device, but really forcing your mind to see it the other way. I find this to be extremely useful in forcing yourself to learn something complicated in drawing. I've heard it has to do with left-brain vs right-brain yada yada, although I personally don't care for the exact mechanism behind why it works. I'm just happy with that it does.

Bit late, but hey :D here are some quick sketches. Hands used to be my nemesis, but now we get along. Ok the two reaching for eachother aren't perfect. I think I like the first ones in the upper left corner best.

If I was to give any advice, it's not to use manga hands for reference. I like them too, but they often aren't anatomically correct and therefore not the best if you want to learn how a hand moves. My father used to tell me that a hand is especially difficult because not only the fingers move but also the middle part, where there are crazy many bones. It bends just so slightly, and ignoring it will make it look stiff. What I fid especially challenging is when its drawn from the front, like the fingers pointing to your direction. Urgh!

As for the expression, try varying the size of the fingertips or stressing the finger joints. Thats how I try to differ between male and female hands.

The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge. (S. Hawkins)
