A New “How-to-Draw-Hands” Video!

I have several different series on my YouTube channel to help with drawing and, of course, one of them is hands. Hands are very important to drawing because they are so expressive. You can really add to the body language of your character using the hands. Regrettably, they are also one of the most difficult body parts to draw. How does anyone get better at anything? Repetition.

In this video I demonstrate penciling, inking, and coloring the hand in two different positions while holding a pencil. So go get your sketchbook and follow along. A little practice goes a long way!

Finally, A New Video!

It’s been over a month since my last video. I made a worksheet for my sketch series. It’s the nutcracker again! This video focuses on mark making, specifically – hatching. You can create both value and texture with different mark making. I made a worksheet to go with the video so you can download it and practice your hatching. Any type of cartooning or comic book art usually has some sort of hatching.

Here is the worksheet!

Foreshortening!

I’ve been making videos about sketching and supplies but I couldn’t decide what my subject would be for my main tutorial videos. Then it hit me! Foreshortening. I’m going to do a series about foreshortening to make your comic book pages really pop. I know that when I first started drawing, my figures were very block-ish. It wasn’t until I really embraced foreshortening that my characters began to look more natural.

My first body part will be the hands. Hands are so expressive. I think they are a close second to they eyes as far as conveying mood and atmosphere. I’m thinking maybe a 4 or 5 part series. Anyway, stay tuned!
