Righty or Lefty?

Postby Hyro » Mon Jul 11, 2005 9:46 pm

I've heard that left-handed people tend to be better artists. Time to prove that rumor once and for all. Are you right or left handed?

I myself am right handed.

What? Where did you hear that wacky rumor? I'm right handed. I've only ever met one left-handed artist.

I've heard of artists that draw with their feet. They only say lefties are more artistic because lefties are said to use the creative side of their brain more (I forget which one it is). It really has nothing to do with which hand you can use, it's how well you can percieve your ideas down on paper (or any other material of your choosing, like a wall, for instance). Personally I can draw with either hand.

I believe the term for that is ambidextrous.

Which is pretty cool, I'd like to be able to draw and write with either hand.

I'm not able to write with my left hand, I might be able to do a couple of Japanese symbols because they're somewhat abstract in my mind, but I can't write with my left hand in engrish.

I am right-handed, and cannot draw to save the universe.

I am left handed. And I am more creative than a commune full of spikes. *that's a hot thought*

I'm right-handed, and my little brother's left-handed. He's trying to be artistic, too.XD It's actually kinda cute, since he draws little monster things for this guy who makes trading cards. I'm trying to teach him my meager doodling tricks.XD

The thing is, if you compare my art when I was his age to his art now, it looks...well...there's a definitely a difference. Then again, I had more time on my hands to practice, since I spent until 2nd grade in an apartment, thus I didn't go outside as much as he got to. I drew, he played soccer/capture the flag/manhunt.XD

In other words, it doesn't matter what hand you use, just how talented the person behind the hand is.

Bingo.

I'm right handed myself but I can write/draw semi-legibly with my left hand.

I'm right handed. I'm assuming that if I was left handed I'd rule the world by now.

Left handed. I suck at drawing though, I'm a story writer. But yeah, I agree with what Deena and Yoshi said.
