I like to look at Disney's hands... those on Mickey Mouse are wonderful! Most of the cartoon hands having 3 fingers and one thumb. When I need a hand... I can take a photo of my hand... or of someone else's hand.
Here... I've taken a picture of my hand.
I open the picture in Paint Shop Pro... I use the ZOOM TOOL to zoom in so I can see my hand close up.
I then open LAYERS > NEW LASTER LAYER... then I click okay... then I use the line tool... and the drawing brush to draw over the hand photo.
Once I've outlined the hand... I EDIT > COPY > PASTE AS NEW IMAGE...
this gives me an outline of my hand.
I am then able to use this outline as an idea for drawing my cartoon hands to use when I draw my characters for this web site... and storybooks.
My grandbaby's hand is perfect in size for drawing cartoon hands.
Using the add a layer to these photos... you can outline the hand to give you an idea of their shape... this will help you when you are ready to begin drawing cartoon hands.
Use this technique for FACES.
See my collection of hands from Mickey Mouse.
