    I did the piece the way I did so that you guys could see how I was doing each step.

    It's useful to do this the way I did, but if you think there's a better way, it's always worth a try!

    I hope you like the tip, and if you do please drop a like! :) 👍

  • STEP 1: Using a pencil, draw around your hand on your paper or sketch book.

  • STEP 2: Pick out the colours you're going to use. I only used two to avoid confusion, but you can always use more.

  • STEP 3: Draw thick-ish (about 1 centimetre thick) lines across the page, alternating between your two colours. (as shown) I shaded in to avoid me getting confused, but some people choose to colour the lines as they work down the page.

  • Here's what the finished lines look like. I put in single, thin lines as I thought it would be a good way to fill in the gaps.

  • STEP 4: Now draw in curved lines and making sure the colours connect. (I.e the top of the light blue on the left to the top of the light blue on the right.) it's a good idea to do this in pencil first so you can make sure they look the way you want them to.

  • STEP 5: Now go over the pencil with your colours and fill them in how you wish (that's either the way I did it or colouring it in outright.)
