Doesn't matter which hand you use to draw. Sometimes the left does better than the right. Sorry to hear about your accident with your dog, you may be able to get back to drawing just fine, I don't think it will take that much to do it. Some people have no arms and still paint with their feet You can do it - I appreciate your drawings and paintings.
Thank you for your insight. I don't know if I could draw something like that again myself. [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by spapad from Monday, August 31, 2009 9:09:09 PM)
Not bad at all WAI! the studs are not so hard you just have to keep the light source in mind. You render like I do. I prefer to render. My philosophy is to make it as real to a photo as I can get it, and that's just my M.O. I really like this! Just watch the lips, work from the inside out and avoid the lines at the outer edges, something I did alot when I was young too.
I need to start drawing again. Problem is, I wonder how much what my dog Bella did to me in a fit of seizure is going to play into my style. My handwriting is ruined. She bit into my thumb while I was trying to put pills down her throat and she started seizing again. The sound was that of a dog biting into a chicken bone. I had to still use that thumb to write while it healed and since then, my thumb has the fexiblity but I've lost the natural way I would hold a writing instrument and shall have to retrain myself.
Sketches like Becks does is different but she does capture the emotion and expressions very well.(Quoting Message by Where AmI from Monday, August 31, 2009 8:58:03 PM)

Here is a picture I did a few years back from an old photocopy. I later found the original picture and the closed hand is wrong. The whole drawing is not completed: the metal studs and the chain are hard to make.
