Pain in The Wrist
All of this is coinciding with my trying to figure out what I want to do with this in the future. I've been thinking about whether I should branch out into non-pug drawings like I did in the beginning, or keep trying to think of new ways to do pug drawings. I guess I'm just stuck in a rut lately. I haven't taken a long vacation for a while and I think I'm just having some mental burn out from everything.
Another big reason for the decrease in posts, especially in the past few weeks, is that I've developed tendonitis in my right wrist and so holding a pen for too long can make my wrist ache and after a while I get some weakness in my fingers. Even doing this simple drawing made my wrist ache and I had to put on a splint afterwards. My tendonitis is most likely tied to the long hours I've been spending at work recently, but I bet that another cause is lugging around my two fat pugs, as shown in this drawing! I kid, I kid! Sorta. It also doesn't help that my right wrist is Sunny's favorite chin rest.
This is the splint I've been wearing recently.
