What i really need is some advice on drawing hands im getting better at drwing them but they still look unsastisfying

This is a very fuzzy question. So the fuzzy answer is:
1. Practice practice practice. Draw from reference
2. Keep it simple. Hands and feet aren't as complex as people think, don't spend too much thought on how they should look, you've probably seen thousands of hands in your life so if you don't overthink them they usually turn out alright.

Hope I helped somewhat

Did you see these tutorials? They're basic but they should put you in the right track:

Feet Basics
Shoes Basics

for hands try one way that you draw them the best then just practic it over and over again. that is how you learn to draw and get better on a certain feature. it really may seem difficult, but keep calm and don't let it frustrate you. hope that helps.

Do you use sketch/construction lines? Sketch lines are INDISPENSABLE for drawing hands.

I like to draw a square for the palm, and four lines for the fingers. I then draw a line for the thumb. After making sure the spacing's OK, I turn the lines into two rectangles (essentially, it already looks like a finger that is split in half).

All that's left is fleshing out, which is fairly self-explanatory. Really, there are a ton of different ways to go about drawing hands. I guess it really depends on how simple or how detailed you want them to look...

The general rule for drawing anatomy and not just hands is to first break them down into shapes. From there, you just connect those shapes together and then draw the final form of the body (in whole or part).

Your best bet is to actually look through photo's of humans and try to figure out the shapes they they're made out of. For example, if you look at people's faces, some have round faces, some have long ovals ones or square-like faces and so on.

Ah ha ha! Marvelous!
So this is where they were hiding. Drawing hands has killed my drawings for a while.
