Ambidexterity Training – A Drawing/Quick Update

By on July 12, 2014

Behold! I did this drawing entirely with my left hand! This was a much more fun way of training for ambidexterity than writing out passages and creates a little less of the old ‘brain ache’.

I made this drawing on the Surface Pro using Sketchbook Pro. I found that although I was drawing with my left hand, I still made the typical mistake of moving from right to left thus meaning I was pushing rather than dragging and that I was covering up half of what I was doing. I’m working on that! I used a ‘loose’ style on purpose to hide the lack of control.

The drawing by the way is of the Bioneer (Me!) getting himself maintained by a bunch of transhuman equipment in the Biolab. Yes I have an overactive imagination…

For the basis of comparison, you can see another drawing I did with the Sketchbook/Surface Pro combination below but using my right hand. You can see the lines are a lot steadier (and it took half the time), but I definitely think the training has put me above the average Joe in terms of left hand control. I’ll keep you updated!
