kian:
I'm having trouble with drawing hands.
What are good tips/resources that can help me improve?

MicheleGui:
This was a big help for me when getting used to drawing hands:

Also, a tip: when drawing people with realistic proportions, remeber that the length of the hand is usually aproximate to the length of the face (bottom of the chin to top of the forehead.

I've just started with drawing and all that.
Currently I use Manga University or the "How to draw Manga" series.
If anything I have a few websites which I use to find ebooks.
Maybe you can use a few keywords there like "hand drawing"

ebooks.<I don't understand>

Paul Muad-Dib:
Lots of practice, as well as observing and sketching your own hands or a wooden artist's model hand from many angles.

A tutorial that contains a bunch of pre-drawn hands that you copy isn't going to help you understand properly how to visualize the shape of the hand in your mind as a 3d object that you can recall and draw at will. The aim of learning to draw hands should be to understand the shape and expression of them in space rather than to copy them or have only a basic recall of what they look like. This only really comes from examining the hand in different attitudes and drawing them from many angles until you understand what they're going to look like from almost any angle.

Art is my job (manga artist and sculptor) and I am still very much learning about hands after many years, so my advice is to start doing this asap. Sooner you start, the sooner you'll be ace at it.
