the home of left-handed artists on deviantART
We indeed made it back, my members! And with a shiny new set of rules.
It actually shines lots, but is quite short, so please be sure to read them before submitting. (:
The rules for GALLERY submissions are these:
We don't accept WIPs. Only finished works, please, no half-coloured pictures.
We don't accept excessively mature or explicit deviations, we want our Group to be age-friendly and not everyone knows what a Mature Content filter is, nor cares about turning it on.
When submitting a story/comic divided into chapters, please be sure to submit the first chapter (or prologue) into the gallery folder „Prologues“. Any other chapters should be submitted to the folder „Excerpts“.
The submission limit will be set to one (1) per week (given that we are one thousand lefties in here already!), so choose your works wisely.
We only accept works you have done YOURSELF! Please be aware that submitting art that is not yours is not allowed on DA in general (there may be some exceptions though, you can read it all in the DA rules)!
Your work respects all of the above-mentioned rules? It then is perfect for submitting.
Also, important! Submissions to the "Featured" folder are forbidden, we will use it for future projects. Please submit to the correct Folder or your submission will be declined.
And for FAVOURITES suggestions, the rules are:
You can't suggest your own work for inclusion in this Folder. Sorry, we just feel this is very unfair.
We want to showcase the best of the best lefty awesomeness, here! Keep that in mind, high quality work goes in here.
Submissions will now be re-opened, and hopefully the admin team will be able to sort through them without too many problems.
Please be patient with them the first while until they all figure everything out, they're lovely.
Thank you for your time, and I'm very glad we make it back on track. Little by little, all the rest will come too.

Time-Travel: Left-Handers at school
This short video came to our attention and it is really a pain in the a*** to watch this. https://www.facebook.com/bbctwo/videos/vb.413132078795966/2715874531972063/?type=2&theater It is cruel to see that - and realize, that not long ago, this was NORMAL for many left-handers at school. There are even countries where left-handedness is seen as a connection to the devil or is stigmatized as "bad" or "evil"... What do you think about this? Are you experiencing some prejudice against left-handedness still today? We hope you are a lucky left-hander who is allowed to use his/her left hand. - Arahiriel (https://www.deviantart.com/arahiriel) and the LeftHandedArtists (https://www.deviantart.com/lefthandedartists) admi
Have a wonderful Left-Handers-Day!
Woohoo!!! It is our Day today! 13th of August is International Left-Handers Day!! :party: We wish you all a wonderful day, be proud of your Lefty life! And we hope that prejudice against Lefties will be gone as soon as possible all over the world. We all can help to end prejudice against any kind of „differences“ - we just need to be open-hearted for any kind of „differentness“. Let not hate or fear (others make you belief) rule your life and how you treat others, or any kind of minorities. Wish you all the best! - Arahiriel (https://www.deviantart.com/arahiriel) and the LeftHandedArtists (https://www.deviantart.com/lefthandedartists) admin team.
Why are you left-handed - another investigation
Scientists think they have found out why some people are left-handed - and it has nothing to do with the brain We have been made aware of an interesting article about left-handedness again. Many thanks to E-Ocasio (https://www.deviantart.com/e-ocasio) for sending us the link! Here you go: https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/wellness/scientists-think-they-have-found-the-reason-some-people-are-left-handed-%E2%80%94-and-it-has-nothing-to-do-with-the-brain/ar-AAyd3fx?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=U147CDHP Interesting research is that left-handedness may not come from the brain but the spinal chord! We are interested if scientists will ever find out 100% why some people are left- and others a
We missed it ... Left-Handers Day!
We missed our special day - Left-Handers Day ... Oh no, we are sooo sorry. We missed our own special day this year: LEFT-HANDERS DAY! Which was yesterday, 13th August ... :fear: There is no excuse for this. Really. I just can tell you all in hindsight: ALL THE BEST FOR LEFT-HANDERS DAY! - Arahiriel (https://www.deviantart.com/arahiriel), the guilty and to be shamed leader of LeftHandedArtists (https://www.deviantart.com/lefthandedartists) admin team.
This is something we are right now discussion (and it seems we will change the „only one chapter“ rule soon).
Until now we only had it for written submissions.
If it is ok for you it would be the best that you are waiting around one week until we officially bring up the rule changes.
(You will be able to submit more entries than – at least the discussion is going into this direction. )
If you have any further questions please contact me!
This is actually something we're revising and discussing at the moment; it is likely that the rules regarding this will be clarified. For now, however, it would be preferred for you to submit just the first page of either type of medium, but it may likely be possible for you to submit more pages in the near future.
