Step 1

First sketch out the contours of a fist. In the first stage, do not try to draw it perfectly. We only need to sketch the general contours. Then using the usual lines outline the claws. Then using the usual lines outline the claws. In various versions, length of the claws can be different.  You can draw  them any length, but the distance between them must be the same.

As we have said, we will draw a hand with claws on three sides – front, back and side.

Step 2

Start to add details. First, outline the fingers and knuckles. Then add volume to the claws. Note that claws are narrows from the place where they come out from the fists to the ends. Also note that the middle claw visually seems longer than the others.

Step 3

In this step erase the guidelines. Accurately draw the lines of the claws. Make them more smooth and neat. Do not forget to follow so that the claws were at the same distance. Add the wrinkles and folds of skin to the fists and move to the final step.
