Steve Huston shows us how he draws dynamic and expressive hands. You can also check out my interview with him here: https://youtu.be/2Var92xzU_Y
After my interview with Steve Huston (which I recommend you watch) he was kind enough to draw some hands for us. He shows how to break up the hands into basic interlocking forms and how to use cross hatching to get a 3D effect.
Steve also recently published an instructional book on figure drawing. I think it’s a must have for every artist learning how to draw:

I’m putting together a bunch of demos for drawing the hands. I want to know what poses and variations you want to see. Reply to this comment to vote for one of these or suggest another: Holding Objects, Fists, Foreshortened Hands, Female Hands, Cartoon Hands.
I things that one of the most difficult things to draw is the perspective, so I would find very helpful for everyone if you make a video just drawing hands in perspective, you know, front view of the fingers and some other possitions seen from the front. That would be amazing, please. By the way, great video, thanks
Imagine a mean and cranky wizard who is stretching out his crooked, gnarly hands to cast a spell on someone who annoys him. I've tried (very unsuccessfylly, I might add) to draw those hands from the wizard's pov. Thank you so much for your videos. You have taught me so much!! 😊
After listening to Mr. Houston’s interview I was curious what kind of teacher he would be. And after watching this lesson I was not let down, he is amazing. I can see why you have such a high opinion of him, I only wish that more taught with his style.
It feels like I'm learning from Optimus Prime. lol.
I really like his voice. And I also like the philosophy that he has on his drawings. It's not like one of those Tutorials on Proko channel. It's not about just how you draw hands. Or anatomy of hand. That's what makes this vid special I guess.
I have such an issue with hands. steve needs to write a book. art book. I'll have to also need to study your anatomy of hands. I am in the process of buying figure drawing author is hampton..something like that name.
bzwatching For hatching, either make all your lines follows the form, or follow the light. In the first example (still watching) he goes left down right because that's the way the light is shining down as well.
I enjoyed this entire video, but, strangely, the drawing theory that Steve began at 24:50 was one of my favorite snippets. In addition to that, I write exclusively with fountain pens on a daily basis, but when drawing traditional it's usually graphite, Conté Pierre Noir, a Windsor & Newton brush for inking, etc...filling up a sketchbook of just my fountain pen has always been on my artist bucket list (so to speak). This video fuels me into making that happen. Thanks Steve & Stan.
Extremely helpful. I think the biggest issue I have with anatomy, and not just the hands, is the design invention of it. Too many times i go into "detail overload", drawing what I think i see and never considering what to include and not include, and how to approach my line outside of contour
Thank you for yet another wonderful video! It has helped me understood more on how to approach drawing hands. Would love to see how to tackle drawing fingers in a video since I am quite weak at drawing fingers and the joints..
For those that are wondering about the "Oatmeal Paper": The paper is actually from a Scrapbook and the pages are Oatmeal color. Steve Huston likes to use Scrapbook paper because its heavy enough for gouache painting. If you saw Proko's FB page, he posted pictures of Steve's sketchbooks and some of those had figure painting in gouache. Also he uses Winsor & Newton Designers Gouache if anyone is interested.
@Proko, please do more of those with him. I actually am not an artist (yet) and I never drawn anything other than frustrating doodles, but I'm finally learning and practicing it correctly and the way Steve draws, his shading process with cross hatching and the way he explained the shapes, etc was very helpful. One of the best shape and gesture breakdown I've seen so far. I mean in a broad way, not hand related.
Study perspective, study how objects move in space, how things overlap. It'll help you understand why the hand looks like the way it is in different angles. Then memorize the basic shapes of the hand. After that, practice a shit ton. Try to be mindful of what you are doing.
Hubert Piotrowski dont look for aomething easy. look for something hard. make mistakes, and learn. after a while, you wont make the same mistakes, and eventually, instead of trying to make something easy, you can draw something skillful.
