    Wacom - using two pens at the same time!

    This is a screenshot of my Wacom tablet and my two hands
    using a pen. Now it feels more like sculpting having both
    hands in action. Using the screen keyboard is faster as well
    and you really don't need to switch to the real keyboard,
    takes a while you get used to it. So far I really like that I use
    both hands. I can turn the left hand and it's an eraser right away
    so I erase with left now. The right hand get's a little rest and doesn't
    need to do everything.

    I remember this dude "Mike B." who asked us to draw with
    the non dominant hand. He challenged us to try it for a few
    hours after a few min I kinda felt this sensation in my body
    which I really liked.

    Anyway I really like this and recommend trying it out,
    I am curious if you tried it or know someone doing this
    as well! THANKS guys,.........

    With natural media, I almost always have an eraser situated in my right hand.

    I can draw with both too, so that makes it a practical matter, as well.

    I always thought that Wacom tablets calibrated to one hand or 'tother, though, as far as actual linework and angles go... is it not?

    Hey Pieces, thanks for posting and asking. I use flash not sure if the angles matter much
    even thou there is a button you can use but it seems not much difference using it.

    It's very different doing this because it feels like sculpting the drawing rather than just drawing!

    I prefer to have one hand on the keyboard, to switch between tools...

    My commentary is a gift to you.
