Most of us have a dominant hand and an off hand. I write and draw with my right hand, and you can see that through a lot of my shading as the lines move from the bottom left to the top right of the page. It’s something that I am constantly aware of, so I make an effort to adjust the page, move my angles and create a more natural blend.
This week, the challenge is to draw something with your non-dominant hand. If you have the time, try to commit 30 min to the drawing, even if it looks like a child has drawn it. So, for us that are right handed, use your left. For all you crazy southpaws out there, use your right. If you are fortunate to be ambidextrous and cannot see the difference on the page between your left and your right, I have no clue what to tell you. Use your feet?
And the most important part of all this: have fun!
All are welcome to join in on this adventure. Please follow these simple steps to send in your drawings and participate.
Yup… this is my left-handed drawing. And before someone says that it is crooked, it is. My regular drawings tilt the other way. I took my time as I worked on this drawing on and off while on a 12 hour shift at work. – STKerr
So I actually had a fun time with this one. It wasn’t completely under my control, so it just kind of happened organically. Need to do this more! -Morgan
