Dom/non dom 5 comparison

7/28/2010 04:40:00 PM Posted In , Edit This 8 Comments »
It was suggested that I do a drawing with my left hand (dominant) to compare it with the one done with my right hand (non-dom),  so today I took a bit of time to do just that.  My brush marker is almost out of ink, so I did minimal work on her hair.  As a result it looks like she has a new hair style.  Actually what happened is that the humidity got so high (90% here), that her hair fell.   I can relate, and she has my full sympathy.  I may do a few more pairs of drawings, just for the fun of it.    There are different things I think work with each of them.  I thought about using pencil, but to make a better comparison, using ink again seemed like the way to go.

I do love using pencil, as you know, so maybe with the next set I'll do that.  Although, that could very well make me  crazy  crazier what with all the erasing, shading, changing, fretting and fussing.

This is so cool! It's almost like left hand challenging right hand ^^ and there's no winner really because the winner is the artist herself =)
It's really a nice comparison, and great result for both.

I think she is lovely with both hands!

They are both very well done! Which do you think captured the likeness better?

Nancy: This is great...I can tell it's the same model, but wouldn't be able to tell you which was done with dominant hand. Great drawing in both instances.

Might be fun to keep a right/left journal of these sketches. I'm amazed at the dexterity you have. I'm going to try a non dom soon...eek!

What an interesting challenge you've set for yourself! You are definitely talented with both of your hands. I'm amazed at the detail of her hair, especially.

Great non-dominant hand work. I think that she looks good with both hands! I love all these challenges you come up with for yourself!

Gosh you've been busy working on the technicalities of your art, I'm too impatient - maybe I should focus a bit more?

Very interesting. Like the idea of challenging yourself by using your both hands to draw. Good luck.
