Hey Tony, I know there are many around. Here is one I did not long after getting back to drawing after a few years away:

Hi, I love to draw hands. I made quite few drawings of just hands and they sold pretty fast. Since you are practicing now the best way to go is draw your own hand, the non-drawing hand in different positions. You can use the mirror too to see it from different view. Pay attention to knockles and muscles and bones going from fingers to the wrist. I will show you here my copy of Mona Lisa hands done in colored pencils.
Show us what you do:D

at the begining of the year i read a book i think its called dynamic hands ( something along that line ) that helped me alot in my hand drawings so if your more intrested in the bonestructure, muscle structure, and actual anatomy of hands... there is a great artist by the name of Burne Hogarth who has incredable studies done on hands, the head, and figure
these are in depth to the extreme! his site is unfortunatley under construction, but i think a quick search will bring up some of his work
hope this helps ...
