It’s tricky to draw hands, and I have a long tutorial if you want to learn how to draw hands from any angle.
Here’s how I learned how to draw poses:
- Go to quickposes.com and practice drawing poses
- Take photos of yourself in different poses and use that as a drawing reference (one of the best ways to learn)
- Or look at stock photos online of people in poses so you can draw poses better.
Don’t worry if it doesn’t look the way you want it to in the beginning.
It does get better the more you practice drawing.
