Full 75 minute premium critique for this lesson at http://proko.com/anatomy
Going through all your hand assignments, I noticed most of them have one main issue. They lack structure. Constructing the hand from basic forms and following the primary - secondary - tertiary hierarchy resolves many other issues. It helps to draw the hand accurately from imagination, attach the fingers correctly to the palm, keep things in perspective, and even helps to shade. I’ll also show you how a focus on structure doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice gesture.
If these problems are still affecting you, I recommend checking out my previous lessons on drawing the hand below.

I've been drawing more than 25 years and I started watching your vids thinking I wouldn't learn anything new. After 2 videos I've learned more than I have in 5 years (maybe longer). I always knew I skimmed over basics once I found a trick to hide my weak areas but no one ever put it so simply and compelling as you have.
For the first time maybe ever I'm going to be excited to draw basic shapes and not use my "tricks" of shading to fool the viewer, because deep down I've always known I was cheating them and myself.
You're a gifted instructor! This weekend I'm going to start drawing again for the first time in maybe 18 - 20 months, and I'm going to buy from you're curriculum! Thank you!
I feel this is very technical in an unnecessary way, our hands don't look like boxes anyway. real artist can see lines, shades and shapes, however there is no exact shape that a one needs to copy or follow to draw a hand or anything for what it matters. what makes artistes differ is how each one can see things and then translate it to Art.
Hey Proko, I tend to draw a lot of different subjects, from houses, characters, paintings, animals, comic style art. I heard that you should pick a subject and stay with it and only work on that aspect. Like say, characters alone. Should I commit to one area?
I don't get it. You started with cylinders but then worked with boxes but actually made pyramids. This always confused me in all tutorials. Like, teachers say "use cylinder" but then they are not working with them or at least they aren't showing them. With the last pic (pinkie) you even used curved line for the second segment. I am a bit confused how to draw hands. I don't see hands as box. Not mine. It feels more like a pyramid (from wrist to fingernails).
i dont think he had mistakes in primary forms i think its good to hide some of these forms to look more realistic, he just had slight mistakes with his shading while the "russian academy" drawing was more unrealistic and stiff 13:40
Those sample drawings were fire to me I dont know 🤷🏻♂️ I hope the original artists don't diminish their particular lens in order to enhance the geometric perfection or something because they looked amazing.
Proko, I’m not sure if you went to school for this knowledge you have or if it’s purely experienced, but either way, I agree 100%. I’ve learned hands on (pun intended) that starting from a basic idea or form and adding to it is far easier than jumping in on something complicated and giving it your all. Great video!
Thank you so much for doing what you do. I learned a lot from you, and I am a working artist because of your videos and YouTube in general. For Autodidacts like me it is a perfect environment: Watch tutorials then..practice until your fingers drop!
I can sometimes see people struggling even after watching such great tutorial which i did earlier to . And the most easiest way to improve faster is to follow though the steps while watching to tutorial it really elevates your understand of what's going on and how it feels on paper .
. People who are seeing this comment grab a paper i don't know just anything even a newspaper and a pen or a pencil just try and go with the steps and the tell me how much simpler it gets right.
I fuc**** challenge you will have 90 percent more improvement than usual.
Trust me or you can blame me if you saw no more Improvement than usual .
the sample drawings sent in, i think, were too preoccupied with detail and not enough on more basic things like proportion - i teach my students to try to draw things like hands first totally without detail ... to draw them (and other things) as outlines first - it forces you to work on proportion etc
