Drawing people is always a difficult thing to accomplish when you draw poses that you never drew before. There was a visitor that came into the live drawing session yesterday, and she/he kept asking if there was a site that could teach her how to draw people holding hands. Well, needless to say I started searching around and found that there was in fact no site with a lesson on how to draw people holding hands, (at least none that I have found). So in light of this persons frustrating search for a tutorial that makes a lot of sense, I will now show you how to draw a couple holding hands step by step. This tutorial was done live in Ustream yesterday and I know that whoever joined me last night had a fun time. The new Ustream sessions are becoming more and more popular with DragoArt members and visitors. Pretty soon I’m going to have to update the whole site so that all of the members can have their own personal live feed when they sign in to their profile. At first I was going to draw full bodied sketches but then I realized that the best graphical thing to do was to focus on the hands and make sure that they came out even and realistic. After the sketch was done, I redrew and colored the drawing. It wasn’t until earlier today that I noticed there was a mistake with the hands so I had to go back and fix them. So what you will be learning is what I virtually learned myself, how to draw holding hands. I hope you have fun with this lesson, and I hope that the visitor or member that was looking for this tutorial comes back and uses it to her advantage. Until next time gang, I bid thee farewell.

How to Draw People Holding Hands

how to draw people holding hands step 1

STEP 1.

Okay let's get this show on the road shall we? Start this first step by drawing out the body lines and shapes with the half circles for their heads being done first. Once that is done you can draw out the outline of their bodies and then the lines for the stretched arms.

STEP 2.

Well in this second step you will start sketching out the shape of their hair styles and then shaping of both arms. Make sure you add the crease lines on his sleeve and then add butt cheeks to the couple. When drawing out her hair make sure that it is chunky like you see it here.

STEP 3.

Now that you have reached your third step, you are only one more away from the final finished drawing. What you will do first is sketch in the strand lines for the hair styles on both the girl and boy. You will then finish the shape of their arms and then add shirt lines and the beginning lines for their holding hands.

STEP 4.

This is the last drawing step and all you have to do now is sketch in all the little wrinkles and creases that you would normally see on the clothes of people. Once the clothes are detailed and defined you will finish off this drawing by sketching out the holding hands and that, is what this whole lesson is about. Once you are done start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.
