Thread: You're Doing It Wrong... Handed.

    Default You're Doing It Wrong... Handed.

    I was going to make this a contest, but decided that since it's just for fun and we likely won't be posting to galleries I would just make this an open WIP thread anyone can join and post to.

    The basic concept is to have a little fun painting minis with our wrong hands. We are all so good at it normally how hard could it be to do it with our wrong hands? :P

    I am going to start with a spacemarine because I think it will be easier to paint something familiar to me with my wrong hand. I prepped this guy normally because I almost cut myself 4 times in 5 minutes trying to prep him with my wrong hand o_O From this point on I will switch to my wrong hand for priming with the AB and all the painting!

    So if you need a break or just want to have some fun or a laugh drop in and see some "off-ul" work here. Even better, join in a post a mini you are/have painted with your wrong hand!

    Happy new year all!!!

    Sounds like fun, but I feel like I have an advantage since I'm left handed...I don't paint with the 'right hand' anyway

    To be fair, I think we should post side by side shots of the 'roughly' same mini with our good hamd
    If you can name your paint colors blindfolded....you might be a brushlicker

    I'm a lefty too. Hmm, I wonder how many of us are lefties vs righties?

    As the old quote goes: 'we are all born right handed; only the greatest of us overcome it.'

    This is a fantastic idea I could do with a break for a quick project.

    Wow its a real eye opener painting with my left hand, ive ended up holding the brush still and moving the mini in my right hand lol

    Right-handed and proud!

    I'll be joining in for a laugh once I settle on an appropriate victim.

    And ten ball - I'm starting to believe Zab's robot witch conspiracy theory.... But good fun.

    10-Ball, you really are a sumbitch. Since I'm busting my ass trying to paint ok with my strong hand, I'm going to watch this thread and periodically make mean remarks about people with more talent than I.

    Alright chums, here we go. I would say prepare to laugh but I don't see a difference from my normal painting abilities yet so...
    I chose a ganger from House Goliath in Necromunda, and since a lot of the fun in that game was creating your gangers and giving them names I shall call him Sloppy Joe.

    Well Diggs, if you think it's not a fair challenge for your skill level you could always sculpt something with your wrong hand. That goes for all you talented sculptors out there who want in on this Where's the emoticon for epic mic drop...

    Doh lol. You cheeky muppet. I'm not saying it's easy, I'm just saying I have spent years painting sloppy just for this challenge.

    I am tempted to make a video of my attempt, but only of the expression on my face as I try to paint o_O

    Finished! real fun project, really boosts your painting mojo with a quick no pressure paint. I recommend to anyone who is low on insperation (with either hand lol)
    Good call Zab on a great idea

    Glad you had fun! That came out really well too I started on mine yesterday. Got the lenses done and and made a botch attempt at gold nnm (which i can barely do with my regular hand) on the chest eagle

    I'll be throwing up another just for fun thread later in the year... This one will be a three color challenge where you grab 3 paints (plus back and white to control hue) at random - blindfolded or whatever - from your pile and use them to paint a figure.
