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!

You are an inspiration! Your art is beautiful. I listened to an interview of yours on Chris Oatley's podcast and have been hooked ever since.

I love your work but it kinda made me sad when I saw that you've made things for Coca-Cola... I know it should be difficult not to accept these offers but... don't you think (since you are quite known on the Internet) that it would be a good idea to make some artwork that delivers an ecofriendly message? :3

You are such a great inspiration to me~ I wish i could pick your brain on how did you manage to get so magnificent :heart:
Adamantiel Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2015  New Deviant
Haha. Interesting comment. Pick brains yes. Like science and Leonardo DaVinci!
Madfairy7 Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
if there was a scientific method on how to become a good artist, or a way that you can instantly become good I WOULD BE SO ALL OVER IT
Adamantiel Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2015  New Deviant
Hahaha. Well, I just looked at your gallery and you do have some skill. Actually, some of your stuff is pretty nice. But you mean you want to be better?

Have you seen those Barnstone method art videos? You can download the torrents, and I have a link if you're interested. Those teach people a lot of things even, apparently, most art students don't know. Or at least, don't implement. It's really good stuff, even just for informative purposes at the very least.

First I want to say, omg, your works are amazing! I can't get enough of them. Second, is there a chance you'll be doing a few more tutorials? You're really good, and I'd love to learn one or two more tricks from you :)
loish Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2015
thanks so much! i'm planning on making a few tutorials although these will probably be published rather than posted to the web.

TheSume Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2015
Hey Loish I got to ask you something, how did you become good at art? Anything you would say was instrumental to your success?
loish Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2015
i have an FAQ ( with a lot of background info about where and how i learned to draw! if you have any questions after reading it, feel free to ask!!
