Hands To Draw

Posted : admin On 1/25/2022
Several illnesses can cause the fingers to draw up or curl. The first two conditions are known as Trigger Finger and Mallet Finger and the other is Dupuytren’s contracture, all of which need medical treatment.
Trigger Finger (flexor tendinitis) is a fairly common condition usually affecting the thumb, middle, or ring finger in which the tendons of the hand become inflamed and thickened and get trapped in their own sheaths causing the fingers to lock when bent. The triggering is usually more pronounced in the morning, or while gripping an object firmly.
This condition responds well to injection with steroids such as cortisone but other measures may be required.
In Mallet Finger, often caused by some kind of force being applied to the finger, the tip of the affected finger bends towards the palm while the rest of the finger stays straight. It is common in people who play sport and is usually sustained from catching a hard-hit ball, which then causes the tendons in the fingers to be stretched or torn.
The treatment for Mallet Fingers is either surgery or to splint them to keep them straightened for at least four weeks. The hand needs to be treated as soon as possible after the injury, so consulting a doctor or sports therapist is probably a good idea.
Dupuytren’s contracture is more common in men than in women and usually affects people of northern European origin. It can develop into a painful condition and involves nodules forming under the skin of the palm of the hand that eventually result in a shortening of the connective tissue, causing the fingers to be drawn in towards the palm.
The ring finger is most commonly affected. Surgery can release the contracted finger and around 12,000 of these operations are performed in the UK each year.

How to Draw a Hand

  1. Draw the base of the hand

    So, we’ll start drawing a hand by depicting an asymmetrical pentagonal shape. Place this shape in the center of your paper or where your character’s hands should be in your drawing.

  2. Draw the fingers

    Now we will outline the outlines of four fingers. Pay attention to the size and position of each finger. You can make it a little easier for yourself if you draw a vertical line in the center of the paper as a guide.

  3. Draw your thumb

    In this step we sketch out the outlines of the opposite toe. You can see that the base of the thumb is quite wide and there is a slight but noticeable taper upwards.

  4. Draw the nails

    Now we will add the outlines of the nails. You may notice that the nails on the different toes have different shapes and sizes.

  5. Erase construction lines

    We always highlight a special step so that you can evaluate your picture, find all the errors, and correct these mistakes with the eraser. Let’s do this because the next action is to work with colors.

  6. Add the final touches

    Small details always form an overall impression. In this step, we will add small folds of skin that are located on the fingers and the back of the hand.

  7. Color the hand drawing

    Use whatever color you like to color this hand. Remember that any skin color is truly beautiful.

What else can you do to make your hand drawing even more interesting:

  • Depict a table, or another surface under the hand
  • Add shadows and highlights to the nails
  • You can try drawing a ring or bracelet on the wrist.
