Being blind from one eye Jul. 6th, 2012 @ 03:21 AM Reply

I'm blind from one eye and I was wondering if that is a disadvantage when it comes to drawing? I showed my friends my drawings and they were really surprissed that I learned to draw good so quickly and being blind from one eye.

No. All it alters is depth perception, which you don't need on a flat surface.

I read that the Illustrator from Fist of the Northstar became blind from one eye, and that he needed his assistants to help him because of the perspective.

My mom had to give birth at 8 months I think because I stopped breathing,So my right eye didn't get enough oxygen(at least that's what my mom told me) I have cataracts in it and a lazy eye.

Your depth perception will be bad, but that shouldn't cause to many problems. A lot of people lack depth perception but are still able to drive etc. so you shouldn't have much to worry about.

If your used to it then there is nothing to worry about in the least,
some of the smartest or most brilliant or ground breaking people in human history had impairments that they had to over come and we will forever be better as a species because they did,

Maybe... your calling is 3d art... who knows

Well if you can already draw pretty good obviously it isn't.

People are already scared of me because I wear a leather jacket and have long hair, but I always wanted to.

Being blind out of one eye only affects your depth perception, which can make it a bit difficult to play sports. It also prevents you from watching 3D movies ever again.

When I first read that, I misread "drawing" as "driving".
