The pain in my arm is getting slightly worse and I am terribly angry at myself to have worked so much and, most of all, so fast.
In my despair, I fired Photoshop yesterday and tried to paint something with my left hand.
What do you guys think?
Please, let me know,
I've got a similar problem with my shoulder so I've been using my left to sketch recently aswell, tho I'm in no way as skillful in using it as you are. I love it man, that's a beautiful painting!
Props to your dedication Kan, always a pleasure bro.
What is going on with you arm man, you are third or forth artist complain about that. I saw your thread at lounge, rsi?? what does it mean?
I am worried because i have bad habit not to take care of my self, and now i have more and more work, don't wanna burned, yet!!!
Still looks great man. The joy of painting/drawing with the opposite hand is to keep loose and end up with marks that vary from the other hand. SO I guess don't get to hard on yourself about trying to tighten up details and things. Just play around keep it pretty loose and maybe do a bunch of loose quick stuff rather than get to caught up on a single piece for now.
I have had problems too. One thing that has helped is where I position the wacom. It helps to not have the wacom to the centre of you but to put it to the side so that your arm has a better arch of movement and is in a more natural position.
Also while sitting at the desk our front muscles tense up especially when drawing. So it really helps to stetch the front muscles and those around the collarbone. Raise your chin up as far as goes and hold for 20 secs, then to the side and at diagonals. There's a bundle f nerves there that when the muscles tense up put pressure on these nerves. All these nerves branch out to your back, shoulder and arm, so any problem with them will cause problems all down the line.
Also consider morning excercise if you don't do it already. BEfore you sit down at the desk go for a light jog or walk and really warm up, shake out your arms and body and do like air swimming to warm up the arms. Then when your warmed up do alot of stretches. Because you can do damage to stretch before you're warmed up. The extra bloodflow can help heal ailments to because the blood can transport more things like collagen that repair tendons. I knwo sometimes excercise can seem like it cuts into productivity time but it really makes your more productive in the end when your body is working optimumly.
Anyway I hope this helps.
left hand? is nich wahr!
Looking great for left hand. I second Cam Sykes about exercising. I've encountered a few times where my right arm aching due to my already awkward position of my computer position.
Just some light stretch and some weight lifting do wonders if you plan to work on something for a long period of time.
Gonna suscribe now hmm, dunno why i haven't done it before! i've seen your art many times, here and on cghub, but i wanna keep track of your work... gonna watch it all little by little thou... 52 pages is a lot!
that painting you did with your left hand looks really good, i really like how you paint skin, flesh, it really seems lively =)
I think it's still looking good, but you need to let your hands heal, it's probably for the best, but if you're depending on your drawing ability to keep money coming in... Damn man, take some breaks every now and then, and the advice Cam Sykes gave sounds pretty good.
And I'm glad to hear you love your wife so much
Feel free to visit my sketchbook
Sorry about your arm man, I hope you get better soon.
The last update is really good. And the fact that you painted it with the wrong hand is just amazing. Great skin and overall mood.
Keep 'em coming!
awesome left hand study! i should try stuff with my right. you're so used to using a certain side of your brain, but when it comes to using the other side for art... your brain has to start over. really good work you've done!!! maybe if you do more left hand studies, you'll come back to your right and it'll be easy!
Hey, friends, you are looks like guilty of an occupational disease, we recommend you to yourself to be a massage therapy on a regular basis. Makes you feel very comfortable. ....
Although the work is more important, but it is also important that health, oh ..
Great Works, was just admiring your works at CG Hub today!
That's incredible, left hand?! DUAL GOD HANDS CONFIRMED.

Humn it reminds me the F.Frazetta story. And its a proof all command is in our mind and you just have to be training another muscles to do the work hehehe.
Hey, are you doing some kind of physiotherapy to recover your arm?
Thanks for the kind words buddy!
