I've been working hard on some other drawings and my hand is really starting to hurt. It's almost a nostalgic feeling though as it brings back my days in college when I was classically animating and life drawing 3 hours a day. Since my daily warm up consists of drawing at least 6 pages of cafe sketches I was a little worried about how my hand would hold up. After the second page today I was really starting to feel it but I didn't really want to stop after only 2 pages. I remembered something my college life drawing teacher had told us. He had once fallen off a ladder and hurt his right hand badly enough that he couldn't draw with it for some time. Therefore he decided to just learn to draw with his left hand. So I decided to do a few pages of drawings left handed, and it turned out to be a lot of fun! I found I was capturing different aspects of people differently. The overall pose became a lot stronger. Sure it is a simpler drawing, but I think it is just as affective. I think from this day on I will do 3 pages right handed and 3 pages left handed. It will reduce the strain on my right hand but also improve my communication with my left. WIN WIN!
