How to Draw World Hands, Earth Hands

Step 1.

For this first image you're probably thinking, "What?" well, I'm giving you such a simple guideline that you'll need to have an idea about where it will go. If I told you to draw a circle on your page, then you start this and see that, well you've run out of room on one side and on the other you have a lot, then you'll know you messed up and where? Here, of course. So the first thing you're going to be looking at is this, the circular guideline with the full, completed image. Don't be afraid to study it carefully before you move on, because it's not completly centered and it will not be a perfect circle, trust me.

Step 2.

Now you see the circular guideline you'll need to draw on your paper. If you can, use a square piece of paper or cut it square because it will help with proportions. And you want to get your circle as close to perfect as you can, so you might want to use a tool to help you.

Step 3.

Next what you're going to need to do is sketch out the first two "top hands" as I will call them. If you're looking at the picture they are the two chocolate-brown colored hands. I know what you're thinking, "How am I ever going to get these hands just perfect with only a circle as my guideline?!" Well, what you'll need to do is look closely to the one on the right, you can see where the thumbnail intersects with the cirlular path, right? I'd say to start there and then try and work your way out to the edge of the page. For the one on the left, look at where one of the fingertips intersects.

Step 4.

Here you will finsh off the rest of the "top hands" and if you would notice, say you were to fold your paper in half or draw a line through the middle. Well, the ones on the right hand side are the same hands, just turned differently and the ones on the left hand side are the same just turned differently. So, you might even just get better at this second-round.

Step 5.

Draw the first two "back hands" like you see here, don't worry it might take some practice to get it just right.

Step 6.

Here you will finish off your drawing with the last two hands there is to draw. Take your time on editing the hands as you want because it will definatly help in the long-run. Don't just draw it once then say you're done, after all Rome wasn't built in a day, you know.

Step 7.

This is what you're finished image should look like. If you're going for more of a realistic effect, don't be afraid to add shading, and creaselines if you want. Also, feel free to draw whatever you want in the middle, or just leave it blank. You could draw a heart for your valentines or a globe on Earth Day. Whatever you use it for, I hope you had a fun time drawing it!

So, this is definatly something that I loved making! I'm not kidding the whole time that I was drawing this I was thinking over and over how awesome it'd be to share this with everyone. The picture is siz hands formed together in a circle and as you can see from the tutorial's photo, it shows three different races or ethnicities. Now, don't think I'm being racist by doing this because that it absolutely not what I'm doing. And don't put any comments like, "Hey! You didn't put so and so's skin-color up there, racist!" because that's not what I'm doing and I don't want you thinking that.
