Hands

Like learning to draw anything one of the most difficult things to draw are hands.  There are so many lines, wrinkles and differences in someone's hands that it is hard to create a realistic drawing.

 
One thing that you need to look for when drawing hands are the shadows.  The shadows will give the hands the depth and the realistic markings that they need.  Also don't forget the highlights.  Sometimes where the light hits is just as important as where the shadows are.
 
 
As you can see you don't have to shade everything dark, but there is not just shading on one side of the hand or on the side of it.  Both sides have some coloring to give the rounded feeling of a 3D object.
 
Does it help to look at pictures like this when thinking about drawing your own project?  I don't want you to copy but does this help show the shading?
