How to Draw Hands – 6 Different Poses – Narrated

How to Draw Hands – 6 Different Ways – Video Lesson

In this video I discuss how to draw hand poses and things to look for to make this process easier.  I talk about some of the primitive shapes that are noticeable in the hands when designing your art pose. As well as study methods to commit more of this to memory.

Hands are always a tricky topic but it is important to not shy away from them because you find them difficult to do. We learn a lot from drawing hands and they are in integral part of telling a great story within your illustrations.

If you have any questions about this video lesson then please feel free to comment and I will do my best to help you if I can. Either in a response or through and upcoming video.  Good luck with your art and thank you for reading!

Free Lesson from my Course on How to Improve Your Figure Drawing

Free Lesson from My Course on How to Improve Your Figure Drawing

This is lesson 2 from my course on How to Improve Your Figure Drawing Step by Step that is available on both Udemy and my Gumroad. This will give you an idea of what you can find in the full course.

In this lesson I show you how to break down the arm with basic shapes to make drawing it from your mind much easier. This won’t replace knowing your anatomy. That takes years to accomplish. But this will give you the fundamental knowledge to build upon. I create these types of studies all the time to continually improve. You will also get the art files from each lesson in this course.

The entire course goes through each of the body parts of both male and female. This is a basic approach to figure drawing. This entire tutorial is 3.5 hours.  I share techniques that I have used over the years to create comic book illustrations and storyboards for television.  You will learn how to systematically break down the various parts of the body into simpler shapes.  As I illustrate each area step by step you will follow along and learn from my studies.  This will give you insight into how I create my artwork and create poses from the mind.  I also share what techniques I use to improve my knowledge of the human form.  Things like gesture drawings, timed studies of the pose, negative space drawing, foreshortening, perspective, organic versus angular lines, and much more.  You will also be given a copy of the art files that I have created here so that you can work along and study from them.  By the end of this course you should be more confident in constructing your figure drawings from the  mind and have a better understanding of the human form.

BONUS Content!  ( Only on my Gumroad ) Now by getting this course you will also get my lessons on How to Draw and Shade Muscular Arm Poses just to sweeten the deal.  Includes the art files as well! 😉  Sample Video – https://youtu.be/0w6m3KiMfZ4

Welcome to The Ram Studios Comics Official Website


Hello everyone and thank you for stopping by.  Robert A. Marzullo here and I wanted to officially welcome you to our new website.  On this site you will see artwork that I create and share on comics, digital painting, 3D sculpting, and video tutorials.  This will be a learning platform as much as it will be an online portfolio.  I have lots of work ahead of me so please be patient.  It will take time for me to get this site the way that I would like.

If you have any suggestions on what you think would make this a better experience then please share.  I always value the opinions of others.  You must remember, I am just some guy in a basement studio with a dream.  So sometimes I can lose sight of what others might be thinking on the other end of this digital pipeline.  It is your job to remind me!😉

So now for  me to get to work and start building this site.  I will be uploading images, step by step tutorials, links to video files, and blog posts for updates on what is going on.  So more is on the way and thanks again for being part of this!

Good luck with your art and keep up the hard work
