The funny things about ☃️ effect is it's almost the opposite of correct work which the joints are tend to be out not in.

Hey Proko, what kind of chair is that?
Thomas Eulogy (1 month ago)
Just want to thank you for your content. Went thru all hand videos (including April fools one), filled sketchbook with tips and examples. I can draw hand better only 5 years more and I will be confident with it. Anyways THANK YOU FOR AWESOME vids! You are great teacher.

Hands are the hardest things to draw.

Mind blown! Your critique about the curve being roughly the same on the front and back of the finger helped me immensely. It was even better to see how you formed the fat padding after getting that initial form/shape. This has helped me with both my drawing and my 3D sculpting in Blender! Thank you!

my fingers actually look like 5 sausages so I thought Nick's was perfect

That's some solid Finger Tips right there...

Mizo (8 months ago)
cool tutorial as always, but lets say i'm a master in anatomy, perspective, and know all human figure planes in perspective but there is no way with all of those info to make one decent depict for a complex form like the human figure with no idea about using edges correctly between light tones and dark tones "not only core shadow "by only knowing the basics of lightning over a sphere that everyone already knows :/ there are many things needs clarifying thx

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I struggle the most with fingers!
TheTillinger123 (9 months ago)
I´d be very interested in you showing drawings from other artists that you really like, and explain what draws you to them. Would be much appreciated to watch you talk about drawings that are as perfect as possible. For me it might be stuff from Robert Liberace, Albrecht Dürer or John Howe perhaps :)
N. P. (9 months ago)
This is extremely helpful! I can't believe I've been falling for these stupid mistakes for so long. Thank you, so absolutely much. =)

I wanna share a little tip that has helped me when working with references: make it black and white. If you only need to see the shapes and shadows it is easier to see and copy those when the colour is not distracting from the shading.
Cristian Guzmàn (1 year ago)
Great video, thank you for those amazing advices !! Cheers :D
tucainga (1 year ago)
Nice channel with great overview over anatomy drawing. But the correction on the pinky finger on the first draw counters the nature of anatomy, the advice looks almost anime type, the finger will never naturaly bend like that, only if in pressure. The original was actualy more ocurate even if not completly correct.

I think you misunderstood the original orientation of the hand model in 4:43. In yours the hand is fully extended with a straight wrist whereas the original has the hand slightly cupped with wrist also slightly extended out.
Bhuvana Lakshmi (1 year ago)
thank you nice
Rex Art (1 year ago)
I need a hand with my work
AlluraCellario (1 month ago)
Rex Art Use your hand as reference. This is why beginner artists should draw from real life and photo references.

I don't have that S-curve at all on my fingers. Some people do have that snowman look for real.
Proko (1 year ago)
+Dan Fors send me some pics of your hands. I wanna see! (Not weird at all)
Ateneiro (1 year ago)
Very nice video, I learned much from it BUT I think that those people, especially the last one (that thumb) was much fatter than in your re-draw, I would like to see some fatter hands from you :) because peole start thinking fat and THAT makes them draw the snowman effect, I find it very difficult myself and always mess up
danure (1 year ago)
Wow, on the 1st one I can't even get my pinky to bend like that. I get that it looks more appealing (or dynamic), but the original was truthfully more accurate.
Proko (1 year ago)
+danure shoot for 80% accurate and 20% awesome

Thanks for your videos 💖✨✨✨✨✨just now, I must draw hands with fisch.

I wish I had better memory so I can memorize all these information.
AlluraCellario (1 month ago)
Cho Lin In psychology there is such thing as short term memory or long term memory. Thomas Frank did a video mentioning recall versus recognition. For artists memorizing something you want to draw. You need to practice and re draw your mistakes in order to get the most out of your practice for drawing hands.
El Weidlerino (3 months ago)
If you're serious, but the information in small chunks, do repetitive drills on them until you feel they stick, go on to the next small chunk. A pianist doesn't learn a whole composition playing everything from the start to the end.
Vinicius Miranda (3 months ago)
I find useful to have a notebook with me and just replicate his drawings, while also taking notes.

is that photoshop you use btw? what tool? it might be useful for me for sketching/ lineart.
Ash Phadke (9 months ago)
He’s using photoshop most probably , the tool is a brush tool
Danny Cruz (1 year ago)
The hand wielding the tool matters more than the tool itself..

Jennyliino I think he's using Paint
