Hey guys, Chris here and today I'm going to show you how to draw hands coming at you. So what I must do is I'm going to start off drawing a person, I'm just going to draw a basic circle here and the beginning of a shirt and then when you're looking at somebody that's far way, the things that are furthest away from you are going to be the things that are the smallest. So you're going to draw the arms kind of in, in a weird way by having them go out like that and I'm going to do the same thing on the other side here and to do two different kinds of hands where you just going to kind of get you a feel of how to do this, but when you're looking at somebody who is maybe on this side they're reaching out, they're putting their hand out, you're going to see that the thumb is away from them. So you're going to want to draw the thumb on this side and if you want, if you want to make a mark or two you can do that by doing the edges of the fingers, maybe a little bit more squared off it's totally fine, you kind of do it your own thing. You got one, two, three, and you got the pinkie here and then we got one hand so maybe that one's the one that's kind of like he's reaching out trying, trying to ask for some money or something and the other one I'm going to one that's maybe a stop hand so when you're looking at a hand like that you're going to see the thumb is closest into your, your face. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to do a thumb here and I'm going to start doing the fingers and like I said you can kind of do the fingers if you want to do them rounded you can do that as well or you can do them squared off at the ends if you want to make them a little more cartoony, and then maybe just finish them off just to kind of give them a little shape here. There you go guys, that's how you draw hands coming at you so good luck and stay creative, enjoy.
