Ever notice that certain artists draw all their characters facing in one direction?

All my drawings mostly consists of crappy anatomy of dogs or something like that.
And, for some goddamn reason, I always / usually draw them facing LEFT. :facepalmextreme:

If you find yourself doing this a lot, get in the habit of using the cross method to draw faces. You'll have more flexibility to draw faces in different angles.

(Below is Andrew Loomis' art, not mine.)

This is pretty normal. Just a Habit. As same as some ppl draw more on the left half of the paper and some on the right half. Just few artist draw strictly on the middle area. It's the same with characters facing in one and the same direction.

This is so me. Everything I draw always has to face left!

Maybe my ancestors were Ancient Egyptians? ^_^

It's all about what hand a person draws with. A person who is left-handed is more likely to draw something facing right, while right-handed people draw something facing left.

What's weird is how everyone is commenting how their drawings face left because they're right-handed... I just went to my gallery and realized that if it's not facing forward, it's facing right, and I'm right-handed XD

But yes. Simply saying that has definitely revealed that I do this. It's repetitive and stale, and I'll try to do better in the future ^^ Thanks for the reminder, stamp~

This is me all the fucking time. I draw with my left hand, and my characters always face my hand. XD You won't find a character facing the left or even facing the front.

Happens to me all the time. My characters are always facing one direction as if they're fixated on it. Unless I plan to draw them facing a different way, then yeah this happens.
