I recommend this as an exercise which helps to put the feeling of proportions into one's hand. Trust me, unless you are incredibly analytical and mathematically inclined, which most artists are not (there are of course exceptions), you will not be thinking of ratios and numbers as you try to draw a hand.

Use the resources provided in this thread as well as the resources which you already have to their best advantage. Try tracing images to imprint standard proportions into your hand and memory.

Good luck!

Getting proportions right is something I struggle with, also. I appreciate the tracing suggestion. Does anyone have any other suggestions of exercises I can do without access to a live model to help me in this area? Thank you in advance for your suggestions!

Smartypants,

You should definitely check out the excellent and informative threads of DoctorBone:

The Bone Zone

TUTORIALS - Bones & Muscles & Flesh - by The Bone Doctor

DoctorBone's CGPortfolio

Also, most Anatomy and Drawing Books talk about proportions in some way.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Hi Rebecca,

Besides making beautiful drawings and paintings you're always so cheerful, enthusiastic and motivating. Im really tempted to do so...

Arty2,

Hey, thanks a lot for the kind words!

If you'd like to participate in Anatomy Forum Tutorials and Workshops, I recommend subscribing to this thread to be notified of when they come online:

Notification of New Open Figure Drawing Workshops / + TUTORIALS - SUBSCRIBE HERE!

We should be starting a new Open Figure Drawing Workshop in the next few days centered around the theme of "The Awakening of the Underground Giant". Doing themed / mini challenge for Open Figure Drawing Workshops is new for us, it's an experiment about which I am excited. You can see work from previous OFDWs here:

Links to all OFDW SPOTLIGHT Threads

Also, I always encourage advanced artists such as yourself to create Tutorials here on the Anatomy Forum. If you feel inclined to do so (which I would warmly welcome) feel free to create a Tutorial / s here:

Tutorials and Workshops (Forum)

I just ask that you title your thread, TUTORIAL - What It's About - by Your Name.

Hope to see your participation in the next OFDW!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak
