I was asked if I could make a lesson on a certain hand gesture that is used almost by everyone that knows what it means. Today for my first tutorial, I will show you "how to draw heart hands", step by step. The heart and hands gesture is a sign of generousity, love, warmth, or to keep it short, it's an easy way to say "give" or "given from the heart". The whole phenominon is most recognized in the North east part of the United States, and was actually first developed by a group of Quakers known as the "Shakers". Anyone can make this symbol from your hands. All you have to do is put your two hands together and crimp them down until all fingers touch and form a heart shape. Almost like swans budding heads as they face each other. This lesson on "how to draw heart hands" is going to be simple, and probably popular too. I think you will have a blast when it comes to drawing the gesture that spread like wildfire around the world. I will be back in a few with more fun so stay tuned in.

Start by making the outlined shapes of the two hands you will be drawing like you see here. The middle should hold a form of a spade. Next, make the lines of the arms or wrists.

Now continue to sketch out the under surface of the fingers which is the soft tissue part of the hands. Once this is done you can draw the thumbs, as well as the lining that extends into the inward part of the wrists. Next and lastly for this step, sketch in some nails, and then in the end you should already have the shape of a heart formed.

For the last drawing step all you need to do is sketch out the rest of the fingers, and be sure to add the wrinkles, crinkles, and soft tissue of the underside of the hands. Erase the guidelines that you drew in step one, and then you are all done.
