injury - tennis elbow

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 30, 2014, 9:15 AM

i posted a poll last month about drawing injuries and the comments on that poll totally exploded! since i don't have the time to reply to each one individually, i just wanted to let you guys know that i read them and really appreciate the input. it was very comforting for me to know i'm not alone! i myself had tennis elbow last february and it has slowly improved, with what i would guess is a 95% recovery at the moment. my arm feels normal in my daily life and after short drawing sessions, but after a day of drawing, it flares up. i have to take on a new approach to drawing that requires lots of breaks, rest, stretching and a more relaxed approach, which is harder than it sounds! more about that here.

anyways, i just wanted to share those two links with you guys. they might be a comfort to anyone who is struggling with an injury, as well as a warning to anyone who is at risk of developing one! if you have the tendency to draw for hours on end, without breaks, and gets easily stressed or carried away with your work, then please take the time to learn about the risks now before it's too late!

Just wanted to say - your art is INCREDIBLE. There's so much variety in your body shapes and such beautiful color palettes and I just love it so much sorry
loish Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2015
don't be sorry ;_; thanks so much!!

You are SUCH an inspiration! I joined PencilKings just to watch your one tutorial, and it was definitely worth it (regardless of how shabby my version turned out to be!). I know I have a long way to go with art, but you are honestly SUCH an inspiration. I know you hear it a ton (I have read so many other people saying the same things), but it had to be said again.

Thank you so much for spreading your talent around!

do you usually use Autodesk Sketchbook for most of your works?
loish Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2015
i mostly use photoshop! i like to doodle with sketchbook when i'm using my cintiq companion - it's great for touchscreens.

Just a random question- will any more art on clothes be added to rage on? I'm completely in love with the shirts, tanks and sweaters offered<3 Will any of your older art be available on rage on?
specifically: "bubbles of color," "think pink," "smoking fish," and "octi-pack," ?
and will "Lumen" and "Glow in the dark" ever be offered there? :D forgive me for all the questions but I've been waiting for you to open your art on shirts for a long time :P <3
loish Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2015
so glad you like the shirts!! i will look into it - i was planning on adding a few more to the selection!
Questionablexfun Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2015  Student General Artist
