Step 3: Draw 3D finger shapes.
Fingers aren’t flat, so draw each finger as a 3D shape and separate them at the finger joints. They’ll look a bit like long boxes. “Think of them as having volume and six sides, so you can visualize how they move in perspective,” says Levens. If your pose includes foreshortening, the depth effect that makes objects closer or farther away out of proportion, you’ll want to note how that perspective shift alters your hand shape.
