Description: This should be a cool lesson on a pair of hands that are shaking. Shaking hands is something that almost everybody does. Everybody except Howie Mandel that is. I wanted to show people “how to draw shaking hands", step by step because that is something that is very useful when drawn on a few characters. The shake is just a hand jester to say hello, good-bye, welcome, and you would even shake someone’s hand if you are introducing yourself for the first time. I myself have a blasé handshake which some people would call weak, limp, or whatever. The drawing didn’t take very long the most complicated part was drawing the two hands, hand in hand. I think it came out pretty cool and I drew in sleeves and cuffs because when someone visualizes a hand shake, you automatically think to yourself, business men of some sorts right? Well anyway I figured I would give them a nice looking navy blue suit and a pair of white sleeves. Well I have to go because I have much more work to do. I will be back with more lessons so stay tuned to see what comes up next. Oh yeah if you want you can even draw regular arms instead of suit sleeves. Well see ya later guys and happy drawing!
