Have you ever had an interest in learning how to draw? Well, getting a copy of How To Draw Hands by Stephen Stanley should be a good start. Stephen provides the basics on hand drawing 101 beginning with your own hand. “One good place to begin drawing hands is to use your own hand for models,” says Stephen. He provides over 75 different drawing illustrations of hand usage to help the reader create their own unique style of drawing hands. While Stephen does not provide a step by step illustration on how to draw each digit of the hand, there are so many variations that the reader can choose from to begin their own hand drawing journey. In this book, you will see hand illustrations ranging from a baby’s hand and fingers, hands on the hips, and hand positioning while holding an instrument or object, to fingers and hands of a creature. This book offers so much for the reader to explore as they develop their own hand styles.

I love to see the creativity of others and was so fascinated by the title and wanted to learn more about the art of hand drawing. Stephen did not disappoint. As demonstrations of the various stages of hands are displayed throughout the pages, this allowed me to not only visualize but to sketch a few hand styles myself. In this book you will discover Levels of Details, Odd Hands, Hands from Side Left and Right, as well as Two Hands Touching and Arms Folded. Stephen understands that not everyone will be able to grasp this concept of drawing hands initially, but recommends that you keep on trying because eventually you will be able to master it with every hand that you do. Enjoy!
