I never really gave it much though until I read a MFC blog regarding this:
"…Why do most figures look at their left side? I was wondering this the other day when I was browsing MFC, and then realized almost 90% of the figures in my collection are either facing left or looking left(which is the viewer's right-hand side).
But seriously, why? Is there a reason to make figures facing left?"
This made me take a look at my displayed figures and sure enough most of my stationary, non-poseable, figures look to their left. Not a mind blowing discussion but an interesting detail someone noticed.
