If you used your bad hand while you drew it, I can't wait to see your dominant hand draw!
thanks; you can check out my regular stuff via my profile

wow dude, you may be ambidextrous. Those look really good for never using your left hand to draw! Very interesting!
lol, not by far, these are really awkward and uncomfortable to do

I love that you're keeping up with art even though you busted your thumb.
This is some really good practice, since you are stepping out of a physical comfort zone as oppose to a stylistic one.
Even though your left hand is weaker, you still show good control over your poses and figures.

Lolshit, those look like my right-handed posemaniac attempts. Keep it up, I'm interested to see how you develop.
lol, posemaniac gesture drawings are really rewarding cause you tend to get a lot of improvement pretty quick if you keep doing em; that said; my right-hand ones aren't much better than this.

Awesome that you give it a try. Or though I was saying it in a kidding manor I did mean what I wrote. Drawing with your non dominant hand is a great way of tricking your brain into venturing into new directions. But yeah, try to loosen up a bit and not force it :)
will do, and thanks for the suggestion!

try drawing from the inside out and not the other way around, this way you can feel the poses and it's less about getting the details(which it never is with gestures) and about the feel of what the pose is. Try doing some 30 second poses and relaxing your arm and make your brain shut off while doing so
there isn't as much detail but you can FEEL exactly what that person is feeling when they're doing the pose, where the tension lies in which bones and it ends up much fluid. Also it's a much more natural base for any polishing up you as opposed to starting out stiff and finishing stiffer
Thanks for the pointers; I tried to loosen up a bit today, and did 60 seconds instead of 90. Controlling the pencil and motions of my left hand is still really uncomfortable, but I can only assume that that will pass eventually.
