Start by drawing lightly so you can erase later.

Start with an outline of the hand like you are drawing a mitten.

Use ta curved guideline for the knuckles and two for the joints in the fingers, (the thumb has only one joint).

Use three lines to divide the fingers.

The thumb is like a crooked rectangle.

Round off the tips of the fingers. Use a half circle for the thumb since it is seen from its side.

The joints of the fingers are a little wider so curve the lines of the fingers, do the same for the joint on the thumb.

The side of the hand below the small finger is slightly rounded.

The fingernails are like the letter "U" but on the thumb it is just a curved line.

There are several wrinkles on the finger joints and knuckles. The are not straight.

The hand on the far side is a line that copies the lower line of the near side hand.

The wrists are narrower where the connect to the hand but slightly wider where they meet the sleeve.

The sleeve is like an oval, not a straight line.

Use shading technique to give the hands roundness.
