First draw the basic shapes. Circles for the knuckles and two ovals for the palm. Add lines for the bends in the fingers.
Now clean up the drawing and erase any unnecessary lines.
Now add a shadow where the palm is. If you don't want handcuffs, you can skip to the next step. Add three lines that curve around the hand. The third line is to show the thickness of the handcuff. Add the chains.
Now add the arm. Erase the lines for the bends in the fingers slightly. If you didn't add handcuffs, connect the arm to the hand. For the bottom hand connection, the palm line should be shown and the skin should curve a bit when it meets the hand. As for the top connection, they can mend together to form one line. There should be a barely noticeable dip.
This tut will show you how to draw a manga hand easy!! :) I added some handcuffs just as a prop. Props are essential for your character. As you notice, the chains are broken, which can tell a story all in itself. ;D good luck!! and enjoy!
