I always thought this was a dumb joke and wanted to redeem it somehow. If the object in question is a set of arms, does that still make them Chekov’s guns?

Bright Goose took a 23-day hiatus while I finished my university degree. It turns out that when you start drawing again after a long time away you’re a couple of degrees worse than when you stopped: I’ve forgotten lots of the little muscle memory tricks that let me draw well. It’s like riding a bike, except that your right hand is doing all the pedalling, and crashes are hours-long.

I feel that before the break I was drawing to a standard that would be acceptable for print, and now I’m going to work my way back up to that.
