learning to write with my left hand: one week of progress (left side is last week, right side is today)
reason for those who haven’t read my earlier posts: my right arm is injured from excessive drawing and needs some rest. figured it was a good opportunity to train my other hand.

if you’re wondering why these look pretty wobbly, it’s because i drew them with my left hand. my right arm has officially given up for today and needs some serious rest! I’m thinking it would be wise to practice with my left hand every now and then, might prove useful somewhere down the line..
used ref for these.

applecorekevin said: I was wondering what you meant when you said… ‘As always, no color picking’ I like your work a lot.

thanks! i actually meant that i didn’t use the eyedropper tool to pick the colors off of the original reference image :) for all of my digital art, including the stuff i make with reference, i choose my colors manually by sliding around the little circle and the arrows in this dialog box:

i mixed up my words, because the above box is called ‘color picker’ which is actually exactly what i do ;) i just don’t literally pick the colors off of other images.
