Super Hands

Banana Hand

I have spent a lot of time thinking about hands lately (some might say I have too much time on mine…).

Obviously hands are pretty integral to what I do, and incredibly useful in general (handy in fact!). They are also very beautiful and as a result they are notoriously hard to draw.

It is for all these reasons that I set myself the challenge to draw better hands. I found learning a bit about the anatomy of hands really helped, as did looking at the way other artists tackle hands (check out Albrecht Durer’s Praying Hands for an example of hand perfection). And although my hands are far from perfect, there is a definite improvement. Here are some examples of my ‘handy’ work (sorry) and there are more in the pipeline.
