20 Hand Drawing Ideas: How to Draw Hands

Hi everyone!

Today I wanted to try some hand drawing ideas and thought I’d share them with you!

I have a previous blog post on how to draw hands for anyone who needs to learn the basics of how to draw a hand. You can check out the blog post here: How to Draw Hands Tutorial

However, if you are just looking for ideas to try out to help you practice drawing hands, I hope you find this blog post helpful and fun!

Hands can be pretty difficult to draw, even for more advanced artists… So I have included hand drawing ideas for whatever level you are at.

I hope you can find at least one idea that seems do-able for your drawing level and give it a try!

Drawing Tips: As usual, for beginner artists, I recommend first starting off with a pencil sketch. Once you are satisfied with your sketch, you can go over it with an ink pen if you’d like. When the ink dries, erase the sketch underneath to reveal your final drawing!

Now, let’s get on to the hand drawing ideas!

I hope you enjoy 🙂
