To begin this tutorial on how to draw praying hands, we will start with the hand closest to us as the viewer.
For this first step, we’ll be using some mostly pretty curves. This move will start at the bottom of the wrist, will curve up a bit and then loop around to form the tip of the thumb.
Then you will use two more long and curved lines for the first two fingers of the hand. That’s all there is to this step, so let’s move on to step 2!
Step 2 – Draw the next two fingers and palm
You’ve already drawn a few fingers, so for the next part of this praying hand drawing, just repeat what you did in the previous step!
There will be two more fingers in this step and the remaining fingers will shorten as they move.
Finally, you will use one more curve for the palm. That should do it for that hand for now, but we’ll add some more to it in one of the future steps!
Step 3 – Now draw the sleeve of the hand
Before we move on to drawing the seconds hand, we will draw the sleeves in this step of the how to draw praying hands tutorial.
This will be a much easier step for you, as it will be a fairly simple shape that you will be drawing.
To draw this sleeve, you’ll use some sort of rectangle, except the edges will be a bit more angled and rounded. This will take place at the base of the hand that you finished drawing in the previous step.
Once you have it looking like our reference image, you’re ready to go!
Step 4 – Next, draw the other side
There’s some good news that you’ve passed the hardest part of your prayer hand drawing!
Drawing the first hand is the hardest part and we can’t see the other hand much due to the angle, it will be much easier.
For this second hand, you will use some simple curves to make the palm and fingers visible at this angle.
That’s all it takes, so now we can add some final details before you color your praying hand drawing.
Step 5 – Now you can finalize the details and elements
For this part of our how to draw praying hands tutorial, we will add some details and final element before the final step.
Before you start adding some finer details, be sure to draw the remaining sleeve for the seconds hand! It should look very similar to the first shape you drew, as shown in the reference image.
Once you’ve done these, move on to the final details! The reference image will be your guide as you draw and we’ll add some lines to the knuckles of each hand. This just helps to make the hand look more realistic.
Then you can draw some nails on the tips of each finger closest to us. With that, you’re ready to move on! Before you do, however, you can add any details of your own that you might want.
These extra details are up to you and you can do anything from adding a background to drawing some inspirational text. It’s up to you, so let your creativity flow and see what happens!
Step 6 – Complete your praying hand drawing with some colors
The sixth and final step of our praying hand tutorial is to bring it to life with some amazing colors.
We’ve kept the colors muted a bit more, but here’s a step where you can go ahead and use your creativity to combine any colors you love! You can also create some stylish, themed images by incorporating some bright colors.
Bringing these colors to life with your favorite art mediums is also fun! There are a ton of art media you can use, so make sure you enjoy your creativity as you experiment.
