To be honest. Anime isn't easy. So... This tutorial was requested by the lovely kaylaangelkisses. Strangely, I don't really follow my tutorials XP. This took me awhile as hands and feet aren't exactly my favorite thing to draw... I may sound like an idiot but I stared at my own hand for 10 minutes trying to break down the process. Hope you find this tutorial fun and easy! Feel free to share your work! I'd love to see your drawings!
Approx. Time: 20 mins (Takes this long as there will be editing.)
Sorry for the long tutorial! I promise it's fast... Just a lot of steps. Well, it's basically a combination of tutorials. The image shown is just of 3 tutorials inside.
Step 1: Palm
This is perhaps the easiest step. Draw a cup-like shape. Round the edges.
Step 2: Hand Outline
Now draw a intersection on the 'cup' which will now be known as the palm. Draw egg shapes to represent the segments on each finger. The width and length of the egg depends on the finger and hand you're drawing. Do not make your fingers the same length. If you examine your fingers, the middle finger is the longest and the the thumb and pinky should be the shortest. The thumb is indeed almost the same length. Just measure it. The pointer and fourth finger and the same length. Draw a mountain-like line, the tip of it being the middle finger. The thumb is a special case. Instead of being equal to the rest of the fingers, it only has two sections and starts lower. Go ahead and add two 'eggs' starting from your horizontal line.
Step 3: Outlining
Time to outline it! Yes, humans have webbed fingers too. No, not like ducks but similar. Maybe I should make a duck tutorial next XD. Anyways, join the fingers to your palm outline. Now wrap the lines around those eggs. Make sure the lines go inward a little at the gaps. Slightly inward. The line in between the thumb is to guide you on where the thumb bends.
