There’s no particular tips I could give you on the top of my head.

However, what exactly do you have trouble with? I can help you with tips for that!

For hands, if it's closed like a fist, draw a rectangle for the back of the hand, and four semi-circles for the knuckles. If it's an open hand, draw a rectangle for the palm, and three rectangles per finger (depending on how they are resting)(only 2 slightly wider rectangles for the thumb). For side view, I wasn' the best when starting side view either, but I would try looking at different anime pictures of side view to get a good idea of how to draw it, or working around the face slowly, try a 3/4 view maybe. Hope this helps!

And for hands, this might help a little,

Okay. Here we go:


For hands sometimes I use a square and draw the fingers, and round out the fingers once I have their basic shape. Then afterwards I edit them. For sideways hands do the same with the square only extend the fingers out the side, making the square thinner, though. Then make sure some fingers are hidden for a lifelike look.
