    One thought on “Drawing Dynamic Hands”

    1. An amazing book on drawing hands. The drawing of hands is one of the most complex things for an artist to do (for figure drawing). Hogarth spells out the formulas and techniques to make it viable.

    2. Hogarth offers some helpful approaches for the initiate artist, but his style and the depiction is highly exaggerated. The bones are cartoonishly portrayed. However, by exaggeration he shows the structure. Worth utilizing but your study of the hands should not stop with this.

    3. By far, the most accurate drawing book about hands and very detailed. I finally learned properly drawing hands with this book.

    4. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee [...]

    5. Un excelente libro para todo aquel que desea aprender a profundidad todas las posibilidades que la mano ofrece en cuanto al dibujo artístico. No solamente es un libro que ofrece un valor técnico sumamente detallado, ofreciendo conocimientos en cuanto anatomía, estructura (huesos, músculos, venas, piel) si no que además, una amplia variedad de posiciones, usos y simbolismo a que esta herramienta puede ofrecer. Sin lugar a dudas vale la pena estudiarlo y practicarlo a detalles.

    6. I remember starting out and going through this book to copy the illustrations. At some point, I realized that's not at all how to best utilize this volume. You have to READ it - the images are done with heaps of exaggeration to stress a particular point. Once I re-read it with that understanding, I was able to begin to build structurally sound hands pretty quickly and regularly.

    7. I find that hands can really make or break a good illustration. I have used this book for years and it has helped me immensely. It breaks down the hand with simple forms showing how to bring life to your drawing.

    8. really helped me understand how the hands relate to the human body, along with developing my renderings of them.
