Thanks a lot for your critique! I'd like to know where you take your inspiration for works like "Three butterflies" - for me, a wonderful "baroque art paper". I'we done two years ago a great female nude, and the background of it is a crude "anniversary wrapping paper" painted blue and red. Oh, since I saw "Three butterflies" I regret not to work harder in this part of the nude!!! And I'm requesting your permission to use the idea of your left-handed done "Bunny" into a china ink I'm just doing. I consider that work of yours simply great!
and Merry Christmas to you and your family!

The Left Handed Bunny I drew is actually a copy from a Walter Foster book. I think it is "How to Draw book 1", but he features this bunny in a few of his series books. Luckily, I work in an art/educational store and I get lots of chances to read all the great books that come in. On slow days I get a chance to sketch, which I think is the best job benefit ever! Haha.
Before having wrist surgery for torn cartilage, I started using my left hand a lot more, knowing that it would be my only way to draw. I found that while my right hand can draw straight lines, my left hand will draw a "squiggly" straight line. But when I try to copy contours or curvy shapes, my right hand would make a crisp line, but I could never get the curves right. With my left hand, the contours are perfect, but the line is wavy (like sound waves). Now that my hand is healing up, I enjoy using both hands. When I get stuck on an angle or curve, I just switch hands. I was rather shocked that I never knew I could do this before. It's been fun learning new ways to draw.
I hope your family has a great holiday season and that many yummy foods fill you up!
Happy New Year, too!
