you can always look up piictures onliine of hand-poses to get references , and iif you can't fiind any for that speciifiic pose, an easy thiing you can do iis look at your own hands / take a piicture of them !!

references help but there are a few different methods:

draw an awkward cup chape and add five lines, one being the thumb and the other four being the other fingers with their respective lengths and fill it in

you can make a circle and add "bear claws" (fingers) and add meat to those

you can look at others work and base your hands like that (or even trace), just make sure you give credit and don't steal artwork

or just make them as wonky and weird as you want

there aren't rules to hands and they're pretty hard

you've got this ^-^

use straight lines before curves. so like, draw straight lines coming to a point where the tip of your curve shape will be, and then connect the points to make the curve if that makes sense

don't shy away from using references!! use them as much as you're able to
