3D Hand

Have you ever wished you could draw like I pro? Well I did. However my (sad) attempts showed me that I lack something important – a talent. I got over that and decided it’s time to try something new. I looked up 3D drawings on Tumblr and chose the one that looked easiest to me. Well drawing as it turned out is harder than it looks. I still chose to share my experience with you because it might help you to make it better than I did.

To draw your 3D hand, you will need:

  • A piece of paper
  • Pencil
  • Marker

STEP 1

First place your hand on the paper. Don’t forget to spread the fingers as wide as you can and outline your hand with a pencil. You might want to do it very lightly so you can erase it at the end without much effort. Don’t be discouraged if you bump to fingers with a pencil too much you can always erase the bad part and draw it back.

When the shape of your hand is on the paper take the marker and draw as shown below.

STEP 3

Then draw a straight line on every side. You can use the ruler. I didn’t as it’s clearly shown.

You need to do that until the whole shape of hand is covered. Sounds simple doesn’t it? Well I managed to do it wrong anyway. The whole point is to take every stripe from the left side to right as one. You only bend it. You don’t break it and draw another. That’s what I did as shown in the picture. Do not do that if you want the illusion to work.

STEP 4

Once you covered the whole paper it should look something like this:

You can color it if you like for better results. I must admit that I do not know much (read: nothing) about a 3D drawings so this may not be the best of example. Feel free to search the Pinterest for more accurate 3D hand drawing. I had fun doing mine so I can only hope you will enjoy drawing your 3D hand too.
