Hands are notoriously hard for most people. I say this is a good effort.

Hey llanpe. You showgood observation with the hand, and I think that's the most important part. You've certainly got the shapes down.

As far as taking it farther, try observing the way the light defines the shapes. Stay away from the outlines, because it is the difference in value caused by the increase or decrease in light that tells one finger from the next.

If you're currently using a "find the outline and fill it in" approach to your drawing, try starting with the values using the side of your pencil, or a graphite or charcoal stick, and let the values determine their own boundaries (rather than using the dark outline). You'll find an eraser just as handy as a pencil using this approach. Good luck.

RedRum said it...
plus your wrist going into the arm is too narrow
and I think you have the pinky a touch too far rotated away
(if you are showing that much nail on the other fingers,
you will show some on the pinky too)

very good study on a very difficult subject.
