    My first attempt at hands suggested a bit more work. Most of these are 10 minute sketches. Still a long way to go but I'm on a journey.

    These are good but you might want to try longer than 10 mins. Don't worry about speed for now, just draw as long as it takes you to make the picture as good as you can. Working on construction and anatomy should help you. But overall you observe well and these are pretty cool. Drawing cross-contour drawings should also help you with construction. This helped me a lot with construction: http://www.proko.com/structure-basics-making-things-look-3d/ if it helps draw 3D shapes as guidelines before you draw the hand. Say, you could break the palm into a 3D box and the fingers into cynlinders, or use the method in the Proko video. I see that you are drawing the 2d shapes as guidlines and you are getting those correct but it's better to use 3D shapes as guidelines.

    I don't know if you've seen them but these videos may help you:


    Title of the video's a bit misleading for this one, but there's a guide to construction of the hand in this one too but I think everything else in the video should be helpful.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xsqbwu_nMI[/
    (I put the video in a link because for some reason you're not allowed to post more than one video)


    It's helpful to use anatomy diagrams as refs when you draw hands as well, so look up hand bones diagram and hand muscles diagram, and you should be sorted. Try to imagine the bones and muscles underneath the hand that can't be seen as you draw, and make sure you are drawing as if they are there. There are quite a few muscles in the hand so I don't mean you have to painstakingly think about every muscle that is there, just the basic bone structure mainly should work. Sometimes one or two muscles will show on the hand, or bones will show through in the different poses. In some hand poses the metacarpals show, or the externsor digitorum muscle shows.

    I have every faith in you that you can make it on this journey!

    These are in order of when they were drawn. The pic of Maya Angelou was focused more on the shading...I was trying to create depth. (I still don't know how to get these things turned. Sorry)

    I appreciate the educational links and advice. I'll try shooting more for accuracy and more of a 3d feel. I love shadows cause they do so much kewl stuff.

    You are copying too much and not thinking about structure, check you Loomis Head and hands book, Proko have construction and structure, as well http://drawabox.com/

Size:  25.5 KBPersonally I think the left side of the hair and the nose are the best but I can see where the rest of it is looking flat so I need to keep working
