Hey everyone! In some previous blog posts, I mentioned that I’m struggling with an injury to my drawing arm. Although I hoped that the problem would have totally gone away after more than a month of rest, it actually hasn’t, and I’m still struggling with it at this very moment. It’s actually been harder emotionally than it has physically. I’ve decided to go ahead and write a blog entry about it, not only to keep my followers in the loop but also as a cautionary tale to any artists out there who have not yet sustained an injury. If I had been more aware of the risks, maybe this would never have happened to me, so the very least I can do is try to help those who aren’t aware of the risks.
I can totally relate to this ;_;
I’ve really had to monitor my hand and make sure I’m taking frequent breaks, and STOP whenever I feel discomfort. Also had to give up webcomics and other after-work drawing and computer activities, which is why I’m more involved in the custom doll hobby lately. Even too much 3DS use can aggravate my tendons. It’s hard to make a big lifestyle and drawing style change this late in life, but I’m working on it.
