How To Draw Anime Hands

In this tutorial, we’ll teach you step-by-step how to draw anime hands from different points of view.

By following all these simple steps you’ll be drawing perfect hands in no time. Just remember: the more you practice, the better you’ll get.

How to Draw Anime Hands

Start with a semi-circled shape and an open triangle on top.

Anime Hands 1

Insert two rectangles at the ends and a larger one in between (they don’t have to be perfect, so don’t worry). The two smaller ones are Thumb and Pinkie, the other three are going to be kept closer, so that’s why we’re not separating them into different shapes.

Anime Hands 2

Draw small circles where the main joints should be. It’s a simple trick that will help you with the anatomy part.

Anime Hands 3

After that, start drawing the fingers. Try to make two separated lines between the joints, this will bring fluidity to your drawing in an easier way than continuous ones.

Anime Hands 4

To finish the sketch: lengthen the lines for the wrist.

Anime Hands 5

There are a couple of tricky lines that you should pay attention to, so use the arrows to guide them.

Anime Hands 6

Outline all the important traces of the sketch.

Anime Hands 7

Clean the sketch keeping the main lines (that’s your Lineart).

Anime Hands 8

Add details such as lines and wrinkles. You can use your own hand to observe where they are and their shapes.

Anime Hands 9

For better results add shadows. There are many different kinds of shadows when drawing anime/manga, you can use the one you prefer. In this case, we are using lines as a shadow method.

Add two rectangles at the ends and a larger one in between, but this time remember they’re going to be in inverted positions in relation to the previous drawing.

Anime Hand Palm View 2

Draw small circles where the main joints should be. Also, remember the position of each finger (if there is rotation or not, etc.)  After all, not all of the circles are going to be in the same place.

Anime Hand Palm View 3

We are keeping the same method as the previous one: make two separated lines between the joints to bring fluidity to your drawing. Remember that not all the lines are straight, so pay attention to the curves.

Draw three forms: one in L shape, another one similar to a triangle (but no need to connect both sidelines, and, for last, a rectangle.
