Step 1.

Start by drawing a base that is in the outlined shape of the lower part of the hand. Next, draw four finger lines that are not quite uniform.

Step 2.

Here you will be drawing out the left side of the hand and be sure to sketch out the chunk of skin or meat that is missing on the side. This is where the thumb would have went but since it's a Left 4 Dead hand, the thumb is missing. Begin sketching o   

Step 3.

You will now continue to draw out two more fingers and this time it's the middle and ring finger. Notice that the fingers are sort of crooked or deformed looking. This adds that dead look.

Step 4.

You will complete the hand by drawing out the last finger which is the pinky. The finger should be really bent and almost look like it's broken. When you are done with the last finger, erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up    

Step 5.

It's now time to sketch in all those definition lines. Start by sketching out the fingernails, and then sketch in those wrinkle or crease lines for the knuckles. Next, sketch the meat which is exposed from the thumb being ripped out. Add some bone an   

Step 6.

Now that you are all done here is what your drawing looks like. You can color it in green, or you can leave it clean. I hope you liked drawing this creepy hand from Left 4 Dead.

Description: Well guys this is the end for the Left 4 Dead drawing kick I was on for a whole three days. I may or may not upload more characters from the game series; it all depends on how I feel, and who requests what. To end things with a bang, I thought that a tutorial on "how to draw Left 4 Dead", step by step would be something you guys would like to see. Here is a drawing of the cover art for the game series. It is of a zombie hand that is rising up through the ground and like the game cover I’ve even included the rotted or decaying chunk of meat missing from the lower part of the hand which is also a result from the missing or ripped out thumb. So, what is Left 4 Dead anyways? Well, for you gamers that know what the series is about I don’t think you need any explanation as to how freakin awesome the game is. For those of you that only heard of the title, let me explain what it’s about. Left 4 Dead is a horror type of game that is filled with zombie like creatures that are incredibly strong, and infected with a virus called ‘Green-Flu’. Almost everyone gets infected from this extreme virus and turns humans into these lifeless, grotesque, zombie like monsters that feed on Survivors. The only four immune individuals that survived the infection is Francis, Zoey, Bill, and Louis. These characters are the main protagonists of the series. It’s basically a first person shooter game and the awesome part about Left 4 Dead, is how four people can play all at once with one another. The hand is green because of the name of the virus that attacks all mankind. In some displays you may see a left hand, or a right hand, but the thumbs on both hands are always missing because it stands for the number 4. This shouldn’t be a hard lesson to follow because in all reality all you are doing is drawing out a hand that is missing a thumb. If you are a fan of the game than you will like learning "how to draw Left 4 Dead". Thanks for joining me with today’s lessons, I will be back tomorrow with more drawing fun.
