    Which hand do you draw with?

    I dunno why, I just figured it might be an interesting question... I heard a lot of the old masters were lefties and was wondering if that was true of some who wander these forums...

    Oh... I'm right handed but I know if something were to happen, like say a large sharp blade takes out my right hand, I'd have to pull a Frazetta and learn how to draw left handed...

I can draw with both, but i write, and have easier to put out the lines with right hand.

    i often alternate between both hands, though after all these years i still can't get my left hand to use chopsticks, or hold a toothbrush well. and my left hand has terrible handwriting.

    i can draw with my left hand, but i use my right hand to add in details and the more finer touches. i often use my left hand mainly to capture structure, or just make random shapes.

    what's southpawed?

    I draw with my right, and it really pissed me off because my old art teacher favored another student because he drew with his left like him, it was complete bullshit.

    Good grief I said it before, it doesn't matter which dismembered hand I use to draw. It has more to do with the blood spatter.

    Left handed. I draw small sketches and studies from right side of paper to the left left. This way there is less graphite smudges .
