Hi, im new here , i have just started sketching again, havnt done so since high school, im very keen to take it far more seriously now, but my skills are lacking and need some assistance if possible.
Atm im in need of guidance when it comes to accuratly drawing hands and feet.
I will upload some photo's soon but so you know, my style is on the anime side at the moment as its what im having the most fun with.
Any pointers would be appreciated.
Maybe if someone could post a sketch of some hands from their sketch book i could look at, not coloured pref.
I will post my attemp at some hands tomorrow afternoon and you can make a judgment and tell me what i need to improve on?
ill comment when you post them
Cheers, should be up tonight some time, Possible late though,
Im really sorry about the Quality my scanner has shit itself and i havnt got a very good camera, so again, Sorry.
Please let me know what i should improve on.
That is really the only way to learn hands and feet. Draw from reference, mostly yourself is okay. If you get tired of drawing the left hand, or drawing it from the same angles, draw it in a mirror to get straight on shots and also it will look like your right. Same with feet, draw them in a mirror. Also draw shoes, old shoes, because they keep the foot shape when empty.

Learn the anatomy of the hand- pay special attention to the bones. Don't forget about the wrist, either. And you'll need to understand how the wrist connects to the arm bones.
Then learn about perspective to the point where understand how to put the major planes of the hand in perspective freehand (without using a ruler) from a single, consistent point of view.
Without those two you're bound to continue having trouble with hands. The anatomy isn't quite what you think it is, and without a really solid understanding of perspective you'll draw each part of the hand from a slightly different point of view, which the viewer will read as deformed.
Same goes for the foot.
Hope this helps
