Once you know the basics of drawing with shapes, drawing hands becomes easy. In fact, it's easy to draw anything that you want when you break it down into basic shapes.
Many people will do anything to avoid drawing hands. Often times, they will draw the hands in pockets, just to avoid drawing them. When you break the hand down into basic shapes and draw the shapes that you see, drawing hands becomes easy.
In fact, I draw hands all of the time just to practice. They are great to practice your drawing skills. They are always with you so you'll always have a live model. Drawing hands is challenging and drawing anything challenging will make you better at drawing.
So draw as many hands as possible. Don't avoid them! For more on how to draw hands check this out-> How to Draw Hands

Here are the steps to drawing hands in easy to follow images...
Begin by drawing a shape that represents the backside of the hand. Most likely, this shape will be rectangular.
Next, draw a triangle on the side of this shape. This shape will act as the connection between the thumb and the palm of the backside of the hand.
Next, a few smaller cylinders can be drawn extending outward from the rectangular shape that was drawn for the backside of the hand.
A second set of cylinders are drawn to extend the fingers out further.
The fingers can be finished off with yet another set of cylinders.
Outlines and shadows can be added to finish the drawing of the hand.
