About The Group <3


Welcome to ElegantHands, a place for everyone who loves and admires hands but not in a creepy way ;) We're a young group, just starting out, but we hope you'll enjoy it here. Please feel free to join and submit your art! :heart:

We have very simple rules here! If you please:

:bulletpurple: Join requests are auto-approved. Just click the button and you're in!
:bulletpurple: Submissions are unlimited at the moment.
:bulletgreen: Use proper internet etiquette
:bulletgreen: Respect the Admin and other Members - foul language and rudeness will not be tolerated
:bulletred: No flaming or spamming

:bulletblue: We are actively seeking art to include in the group's gallery. If a request on a piece is left unanswered and expires, please know that we will not renew it on our own. Instead, we'll add the art to the group's favorites. If this happens to you, feel free to submit the picture on your own, we'll be happy to have it here.


:bulletyellow::bulletyellow::bulletyellow:Folder Descriptions:bulletyellow::bulletyellow::bulletyellow:

Not sure where your art should go? This should help!

Featured - don't submit anything here, we will periodically pick pieces to feature
References or Tutorials - Art - for tutorials on how to draw hands or drawings of various hands to be used as references
References or Tutorials - Photography - for photographed tutorials on how to draw hands if such a thing exists or photographs of various hands to be used as references
Just Hands - Practice and Sketches - for doodles and sketches of hands, for practice or fun
Just Hands - Art - for finished pieces of art, just of a hand or hands
Just Hands - Photography - for artistic photographs of just a hand or hands
Mostly Hands - Art- for art that features a hand or hands heavily, but also includes other elements
Mostly Hands - Photography - same as previous folder, but with photos
Includes Hands - Art* - for art that doesn't necessarily focus on hands, but the hands within the piece are still prominent and well done/expressive/artistic
Includes Hands - Photography* - same as previous folder, but with photos
Miscellaneous Hands - for any art that includes hands but doesn't fit into any other folder

*for the Includes Hands folders, it is entirely up to the group whether a piece belongs in these folders. We must decide if we personally feel that the hands in the piece are noteworthy enough to warrant a place in this group. If your submissions to this folder are rejected, it is NOT because we didn't think your art was good, only that the hands in your submission were not a stand-out feature. Do not be offended and see an insult where we promise you there is none.

If you still aren't sure which folder your submission belongs in, please feel free to ask!

:iconyellowheartplz:Don't forget to look at our faves!:iconyellowheartplz:
We have helpful tutorials & admirable hands in there too!

Hello lovely members! In case you guys weren't aware, SenshiStock is having a contest that involves sketching hands and feet.

The 50 Foot / 50 Hand Challenge! CLOSED!THIS CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED! But feel free to do it just for fun/improvement!
This was a drawing challenge from :iconSenshiStock: and :iconmostlyguystock:!
Hands and feet are pretty hard to draw. Lots of artists struggle with them! Even when other things come naturally, hands and feet can still be quite a problem. The best way to get better at drawing hands and feet is to study them!
The Challenge: Sketch or draw 50 feet AND 50 hands from reference photos or life.
Deadline: The deadline has passed for this challenge, but you can still participate and make yourself a better artist!
You can post them as one giant post, in groups, one at a time, however you want! But please make a FOLDER in your gallery and put them all in there then send me a link to the folder. (If you do one submission with ALL of them at once, then you don't need the folder.)
HOW TO QUALIFY: In order to make this a little easier for myself, please number yo

You guys should really check it out, it sounds like it'd be a lot of fun! Not only is there the chance you'll win a prize, but also it's a really great excuse to practice drawing hands! (and feet too)

The journal also includes links to a lot of really helpful hands (and feet) stock. And we here at ElegantHands would love to include your entries in our group, should you decide to give it a go!

I hope some of you try it out - I think it would be a fun challenge for anybody. :D
