struggling with an injury - story and advice!

loish:

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.

happened to me when I was 21 - led to severe pains and depression. it is a harsh lesson to learn. I now stretch regularly, take 5-10 minutes of break every 1.5-2 hours and pray that it will does not get worse. most of the time I can’t even lift weights and open doors with my right hand. 

basically artists are prone to either wrist tendonitis, tennis elbow or carpal tunnel syndrome (for mouse users or sculptors). I am certainly not a pro at this, but most of those tricks come from experts and helped me immensely:

  • inclined surfaces (I’ve invested in a drawing table and it helped a lot to reduce strain, or my tablet is always at a 30° angle)
  • alternating between cold and warm towels + anti-inflammatory meds when there’s inflammation/pain, plus complete immobility of the wrist and fingers and tight straps right below the elbow - basically take some sport band and compress your tendons for a few minutes (but optimally you NEVER want to get there) stop working for at LEAST a week, do NOT work. NO WORK. DON’T YOU DARE
  • regular rest by putting your working hand completely flat on a hard surface.
  • lightly stretch before and after. here’s a nice video to stretch and strenghten: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJAx42aCtSQ
  • sleep with your hands and wrists straight and flat - you can strain them just by sleeping on them. I AM NOT FUCKING SHITTING YOU PAY ATTENTION this is a bitch to your tendons
  • try to restrain your hours of arting. 8 hours in 2-hours-bursts is what I’ve found work best when I work. if I want to add personnal work, I do it on the weekends. rest when you come back after your shift. eat and do chores before drawing again if you must.
  • try to use your off-hand more. it’s stupid but opening doors and vaccuuming with the other hand does marvel to rest you overworked main hand. and it takes maybe a couple of month until it’s an habit.
  • GET COMFORTABLE WORK TOOLS THAT FIT YOUR HAND - that can mean some macgyveringor or extra costs, but it is worth it.
  • go to a physiotherapist if you can, and ask them about exercises and treatments. sometimes universities can get you some time with a student so it’s cheaper. or you can live in Canada. YEAAAH
  • regular hand and arm massages - take care of yourself and your hands, take your time, use a lotion you like, make it a special moment for your brave hands to pamper them. rest.


did I say rest? REST. it’s easy to get lost in the moment and 10 hours fly by but really, it’s almost better physically and mentally to take breaks and think/rest.
do not take your body for granted. take care of it.

good luck and make art.

Calligraphy Username Giveaway Sort of
So here’s the deal everyone.  I’m SUPER bored, and I haven’t been able to write much recently so I want to do this as a gift for people.  The goal is to make a gif, like the one above, for everyone up to the first 10k reblogs (if I even get that high), of their username, or one other word that they want (just put what you want in the reblog, but keep it reasonable.  I don’t want to gif-write the entire declaration of independence.)
Likes are also appreciated, but to keep it easy on me try to stick to reblogs so I can keep count without going insane.  I will get to everyone in the first 10k and if I find that this doesn’t take too much of my time I’ll see about doing more.  But yeah.  Reblog away, and my ask is open for any questions.

Definitely would love to see my username done as this

I would really like my other username “ysucae”

Mass Effect 2: Suicide Mission performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra

reblogging again because reasons

a gentle reminder, once more, that this exists and will never be awful, ever, and this song has basically the most special place in my heart for any video score ever, tying with Leaving Earth, so thanks for that Bioware

why am I only hearing this now omg

Whenever I hear this, even now, I feel my little heart squeeze just a little, and my heart beat skip. And I swear dust always finds a way to get into the corner of my eye just when this song starts (thankfully no tears drop). This amazing score tied in with the momentum the entire game brings you to has placed the ME2’s Suicide Mission as my favorite, most heart wrenching “This is It”  moments in video gaming for me. It all leads to this.

no nonononononononononno (wtf so good)
I can’t play the games again I will be hurt

Happy Holidays friends and followers - although I am deep into contract work, I still draw reaaaaally quick fun things sometimes! I kinda always imagined Jack Frost as a sassy englishman-elf dude. Also, Matrix-style.

#personnal  #this is my life 

I recently got a good, nice paying job in the game industry that requires me to draw a lot.
I should be happy.
I should. I have the right to. I worked damn hard for this job.
But I am not. For some mysterious reasons my brain does not compute the good things that are happening. I run so late I have to work on every waking moments (which are few and far between) to barely cut it. The impact on my work is loud and clear; I fear this funk will cost me more than I can pay.
This is NOT THE TIME BRAIN

And my tumblr is so empty and sad. I’m so sorry.

I’m right there with you. When your work is tied so intricately into your being, and every soul aches and downs you get impact your work directly, it becomes some kind of Saw-esque game with you and your mind trying to get everything done, stay sane and not get fired.


It’s just a monster that keeps on feeding itself. You can’t starve it. Stopping completely, changing projects, nothing will work until the peace of mind returns, and it can take a while.

I find listening to good movies and podcasts while trying to get my damn work done helps by occupying parts of my brain that would hold me back.

I hope you’ll get there soon, please be well.
