Art future plan

Journal Entry: Sat May 2, 2015, 10:19 PM
hello my dear friends on Deviantart.

some of you probably know that few month ago I experience the horor of having  CTS  symptoms, my drawing hand hurt so much I cannot draw for weeks.

after that, I go to massage therapy and fixing my hands slowly, well the diagnose said that my blood flow on my hand are blocked and the muscle on my hand also strained so much because I using same position that burdening my hand in a long period of time.

anyway, I feel grateful that I'm okay now,  but every time I draw for a long time my palm, hand and shoulder get hurt again, a constant pain that burns... ;_; so I cant draw to long or to tired.

but weirdly I'm okay if I draw using my sketchbook. drawing pad or any traditional media.. so its only hurt if I draw with my computer and pen tablet...

hmm so the problem is the position of me drawing right? I try to make the position of me drawing with tablet as comfortable as I can be, change the monitor position, table heights, even pillow supporter  for hand, and wrist guard... but the problems never go away.
this problem restrict me from release my full potential in drawing.

(imagine when inspiration come and your mood is super high, you draw and trying to finish it until you satisfied, but you need to stop because your hand start to ache, :cry: so you stop and rest , you will continue your drawing tomorrow, but tomorrow is different matter, your mood is gone, and your creative juice is lacking.. its really frustrating)

one of my friend even suggest me to stop drawing digitally and back to traditional art..
(noooooooo )

as much as I love drawing traditional, but drawing in digital have many efficiency, is faster and can give more option in editing..
so probably buying a monitor tablet will solve the problem?

they say drawing in monitor tablet (cintiq, surface pro, huion monitor tablet etc ) feels like drawing in paper. and its a lot more convenient than using pen tablet.

I always hesitate in buying one because the price feel to burdening for me, haha, so I never intent to buy one, a bamboo pen are more that enough for me..
until this problem with my hand arises ..
I also watch the wacom cintiq review on youtube and my desire to buy on getting stronger :drool:

some off you might be thinking.. aaa its just a gadget, is it that hard to buy one?


well yea, to me it is a big deal, and the price are indeed to much for me considering my income and my family economic situation also my art progres
(now Im slower in finishing my jobs, means slower incomes, but the bill keeps comic every month  haha )

but I've been saving since  few month ago and yeaay  its  60%  to go  ^^;  little by little step by step,
I think this as invest and a way to try saving my hand :lol:


 I also be able to save this much because of the help of my Patreon support, my clients who are very tolerate with my slowness, and all the people that helping me.
so thank you verymuch guys, I will try my best, :)

also Im planing to open a slot commission in few weeks so I can raise my cintiq fund faster ^^
I hope people still interested in commissioning me haha its  bloody long time ago since the last time I open a slot :)

anyway thank you for readings my rants, I'm so sorry if there is any words that feel offense, or if you feel that slowly I'm become a pathetic artist for being like this..
all I can say that I will always try my best.

fightoooo



regards,
Archie
