Through-out 2017 I'll be drawing using my non-dominant hand (my left) save for updates to my quest, HALL. Feel free to join along!


-Use non-dominant hand (Ambidextrous? Draw using your mouth or something crazy like that)

-No line tools, Brush stabilizers (Smoothing), or anything like that. Just you and the brush tool... and maybe a couple layers.

-Have fun!

Like to get a head-start, eh? Nice, let's see if you can keep up!

And now, it's begun. 2017 is here.

I dunno how much I'll stick to it and etc, but my plan is to maybe make my JiggyDino mascot go on some sort of adventure for this. Mostly cause it'll be easier to give me something to do for this.

But man! Right this instant, it feels like I'll never get better, lol. It's like impossible to tell my hand to make smooth strokes.

Also this time I cheated and used area selection and autofill (with my left hand and it was still hard) to color him cause my brain is dumb and only read the first half of the second rule, but I won't use it again! Still using layers though. =P

I suppose bucket usage and the like is fine, it's still hard to actually make your mark on those kinds of tools.

Fair warning, making comics this way is a pain in the butt.

Maybe an adventure where the little dino gets some lessons so that he can learn how to properly dance a little jig? That way he can live up to his name of JiggyDino! XD

I'm planning on just doing the quest update approach of having a panel with accompanying text. But I can always sometimes do a more comic style for some of them... and maybe some light animation. Not looking forward to those, haha.

Even with my left-hand my biggest weakness is still apparent. I can work on faces well enough, but I need to work on bodies more.

I suppose I should work on that during this year as well. Haha

Glad you enjoy Genesis' unending kitty face.
Always nice to see you contributing to this as well!

I've been a bit slow with this since we got two puppies (Brings us to six dogs total), so now most of my free time is taken up by making sure these puppies are raised properly.

Regardless, I'll still be chipping away at this. Though, it seems my left hand is starting to catch up a little faster than I expected... hmm.

Don't forget there are many layers to being skilled at drawing. Drawing with my left hand only means that I impair my hand-eye coordination by using my inexperienced hand. I still draw by what I learned or by using my usual drawing process.

You will "get gud", but only if you practice a lot. And in the process get better at many aspect of drawing, not just your ability to control your drawing hand.

No idea how Golde draws their lines this smooth with their non dominant hand though. All my left hand drawings look soggy. Background are easier for some reason though, haha. Probably cause there's less pressure to make it look consistent.

I use one layer to sketch out what I want, then from there I zoom in and take my time to draw the lines on another layer. It smoothes things out significantly. Though, the sketches look... interesting. It's the same thing I do with my right hand.

Also, there is quite a bit of erasing when it comes to faces (which happens to be the hardest part for me when using my left hand)
No. 32740 ID: ca0e20
Oh yeah, sketches. I've been trying to slowly rely less on them, even though part of that tactic is drawing simpler character. For this I have not used sketches.

Also polishing is something I normally do, but I've only started to do introduce it slowly to my left hand during these drawings. I think the first drawing had no polish at all though. Maybe the dance one also cause I wanted to move on to the next frame instead of taking too much time on each one. Other than that, I fixed a couple of things that bugged me extra, also/especially including face related ones, but I guess I like to leave some of the faults in for whatever reason.

I've neglected doing left hand drawings and I shouldn't cause man, I feel like I was starting to get the hang of it and today it was as tough as the first time I tried drawing with my left hand. Anyway.

I've taken too long to do anything on this for a while and managed to forget out to draw Genesis temporarily. Also, I found the materials in Medibang.

This one was done without any sketches.

I'll be honest, I forgot about the thing myself. Kind of embarrassing, actually.

I should probably get back to it.
