    Alright. (rolls up sleeves) I thought I ought to get the ball rolling right away. In my other forums that I frequent we've started doing somthing just to help ya'll get out of that 'artist' block we sometimes get.

    So. No rules really save for the avoid the vulgar and what not and if you do make a nude or somthing please post a link with a warning rather than the image! ^^

    So! Here we go. What I'll do is each month I'll post a challenge. You don't have to do it but if you want to it's good practice.

    Todays random challenge is...Practice with your mouse or stylus! This means drawing with your weak hand or doing somthing with your mouse or stylus that you haven't tried yet!

    There's no limit to what you can do. Anything goes just give it your best shot!

          Are you kidding? My left hand can't even grasp a mouse! It's just a place to hang my other fingers, basically. Damn thing.

            So why don't we do this? Draw a picture with your right and next to it, draw the same picture with your left. ^^ Worst case it's highly amusing! hee hee.

            And I'll post an example that I just drew up! 15 minutes in Corel Painter IX. Right hand on the left Left hand on the right. ^_^ My right hand twitched trying to grab the pen out of my left hand as I drew. I felt sooo frusterated when I drew with my left. I could almost feel my brain freaking out.

                        I've been moving heavy boxes around all day (and when not doing that, typing) so my wrist had a workout before even attempting...maybe I shall try again (next time with PSP??) on the weekend.

                          That would explain it

                            These are fantastic! I love em!

                            And interesting article about right and left brain usage for drawing can be found here! I found it quite interesting and good lessons to learn!

                            Clicky here!

                            My opinion on this is that when I draw with my dominant hand (Right) I tend to use my creative side of the brain but then I draw with my weak hand (Left) I want to draw more technically and perfect the image I'd just drawn with the right. Thus my Right hand wants to grab the stylus away from my left because it just dosen't know how to draw!!

                            Both of yours are far better than mine though. O_O Like they almost mimic the original perfectly! <----Jealous

                              I noticed with my left hand ( which I naturally was till a stupid grade school teacher switched me) I was doing straighter lines easier then I was with the one with the right it was weird.
