SnobbyOo: Thanks, it is reaaaaally hard to be precise with the other hand.
Coz_K: Ha! You paint with your left better than I do with my right! Thanks a lot for kind words, man. Means a lot coming from you.
Call0ps: Hey bud, whatup? Yeah, it is really depressing not to be able to draw for a while and then to draw with the left. Thanks God, I can paint with the right again.
MatejaPetkovic: It's Repetitive Strain Injury. Meaning, constantly doing something that is not good for your body causes your nerves to inflame. It's a bitch! And yeah, I guess all the others who got it have been drawing too much as well.
Cam Sykes: Hey dude, you know what, your assumption turned out to be the cause of my problem at the end. E.g. neck nerve inflammation spread over the whole arm. And you gave me the best tip: to try to relax and work loosely with my left hand. That's how I worked these last two weeks at work. Thank you!
Hideyoshi: Hey brother! Yes, hence the crappy drawing. Felt like being on some strange drug, really..
Darkside: Thanks a lot, I cannot believe that this does appeal to people. That's a big motivator.
Huey Yeng: Hey there! Yeah, that's the plan and I will stick to it this time.
Cacodaemonia: Glad you do! Really, that was such a horrible moment of desperation, I thought, fuck it, I'm gonna draw with my left whatever comes out! Thank you very much.
DHTenshi: Hello and welcome to my shabby little barn of doodles Tea and cookies?
Nicky S: Yeah, I do have to make money out of drawing. But that is such an incredible privilege, I don't mind doing all I can not to loose that great job. I was really scared they are gonna fire me or something but luckily, my studio director had the same problem and is giving me the full support. Thanks for dropping by, mate!
Spaggen: Hello there, glad you like it. How's your stuff coming along?
MattGamer: Hello! Yeah, I have to say, it was a really good experience for gaining some extra skills. I plan to work more and more with my left in the future, so I never get caught in the same situation again. Thanks for compliments!
algenpfleger: Hey buddy, thanks a lot. Doing physiotherapy now but will proly have to see the specialist
huhucg: Yeap, the health comes first, I realize it now. Thanks!
MeTaL-Mike: Thanks Mike, that means a lot!
llex_paul: Ahh, man.. That is a real push into the land of the feel-good-zone
elihanselman: Thank you kindly!
Dr poPcoRN: Hehe, yeah I like him too now. Especially when I think of the fact that it is in "The Transient Man". Thanks!
Koto: Nothing special about it. Really! Give it a try, somehow the hand will find the right stroke.
purb36: Hey! Welcome, mate! Thanks a lot.
[Q]: Haha thanks, but you haven't seen anything yet. Just browse some of the threads here in this section.. Wow...
Axel.s: Much appreciated, thanks for dropping by!
Smarty: Hey matey, what's up? Hope you're well and fine.
huhucg: Yes, I am working but veeeeery slowly and careful. I am still hurt and have pain. Thanks!
B-Man: Yeah, I know.. I really have to! Thanks for dropping by, mate.
Jorge Gecov: Hey Jorge! Yeah, just started a therapy, I'll see how it goes. How's life, mate?
The last few weeks were really bad. I got depressed and scared. It's so strange how a simple thing like the right posture can damage you and your whole career. 10 years of boxing didn't do as much damage to my body as couple of weeks of intensive drawing! But I am back on my right hand and being really slow and careful.
Here is an old sketch that was lying around for ages. I decided to put couple of more hours in it and I think it's much better now. Still, so many things need to be improved but I cannot stress myself now.
I just hope you like it, fellows.
Glad to hear you are doing better now and are back to painting with your right hand. I heard about your injury during the gnomon master classes and mid way through last week my pinky started to feel numb and my arm got really sore. I too feel that it is a pinched nerve and was wondering what treatment you got to unlock the neck from pinching your nerve? I've been drawing all today with my left hand just to get my right to rest a little.
Anyways, I'm happy you are recuperating and doing well.
Realy impressive work! I must admit^^
But seeing as I always try to come with a crit ill do my best...
In the last pic i think the colors might be a bit to saturated in some aerias, like the sky in some places.
that's really really great!!!!
I love looking at your images. Very fun and inspirational ^_^
My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

MatejaPetkovic: Thanks bro! Nemoj da cekas i dugo razmisljaj o onoj ponudi, drugar. Kriza je i tesko se dobijaju poslovi, zgrabi sta ti daju
NickyBeats: Haha, thanks for such nice words! No way I deserve it..
Cacodaemonia: Yeap, you're absolutely right. But I'm a Bosnian dickhead and it takes a long time for my brain to figure it out
Coz_K: Thanks Coz! Nah, they aren't really.. I guess it's just a matter of time and patience.. How are you doing man, what's going on?
huhucg: I guess, machinery in a scenery is affected by light like anything else. There are always two aspects of it: the design part and the painting part. If the machinery is well designed, the scene will work better. But if it doesn't obey the laws of light, it will still be bad. So I guess, it should be treated just as any tree, rock or figure in the landscape. I hope this helps, my friend.
facosta: Fernando, what you have to do now is to STOP!! Seriously, it will get worse whatever you do, but it's up to you to decide how bad it will get.
I got a very painful physiotherapy and that seems to help a bit. But the only cure seems to be in resting your arm. So please, don't be like me; STOP!!!!!
DStraX: Thanks a lot, you are always welcome to give crits, mate! And that is a very good one, btw.
sansan: You rock, San!
Krato: Haha, thanks mate.
NateShaw: Yeah, guess I gotta see that. Thank you kindly.
My57: I am so happy you say this, really. I always blush when I read something like that.
Just a lunch quicky. Red Riding Hood. Don't know where to take it from here. Don't know if I should. Any suggestions, fellows?
Love that composition! It's a super quick, efficient read. I'm not sure where to go, though, or if you should do more with it... Maybe treat it as a texture exercise or something?
Thanks for your advice, I have stopped using my right arm for the most part. It's tough cause you are used to doing so many things with it (eating, writing, painting,etc) and I will be going to the doctor this week as well.So I hope that this will help.
Glad to see you are feeling much better and I really like that red riding hood piece! Thanks for sharing
Thanks for your suggestion!I think that I started knowing ordering what.
The recent beginning involves the amount the color the practice.Please ask, should how line the practice method that it is effectively?
( hope sometimes a practice for can seeing I drawing, and say the weakness that suggest with the some?) thanks.
Hey, had a look through your sketchbook, and have to say, regardless of which hand you're using, its still fucking golden work man =) And sorry for sounding really immature on the sketchgroup meeting- I was thinking it over and I sound like some arrogant newcomer sometimes ><
Apologies for forcing ya to draw for us that night, hope that you RSI hand improves- I've taken you advice in mind on sharpening tones, technique, subject matter and enviro practice, and will show improvement next sketchmeet
thanks for sharing as well your recent work- now I really see how good design and concepts really push forwards the piece more than any amount of pretension or souless technique!
Hey, I'm glad you're back and I hope everything is good with your arm.
For answering your question about my progress: I think it's coming along pretty good thank you. Not great, but still decent. But I really need to draw more (4-5 hours/day isn't enough!).
Okay, to your stuff. I really like the mech piece. Really nice light. And the Red Riding Hood is looking great too. I don't think you should work more on that one. It looks fine.
Keep 'em coming man!
Call0ps: Hey Jonny, thanks for dropping by, man!
Cacodaemonia: Cheers, I think I'll just leave it. I hate it now
enthombed: Thank you so much, but this is all quick stuff for fun. The concepts I do at work are much more solid and thought through, hopefully I'll post some up soon.
facosta: Hey Fernando, good that you'll see a doctor. Try to get a therapy ASAP.
huhucg: For the lines, I think that life drawing is the best thing. Drawing everything around you all the time WILL make you more precise. Cheers!
Aberzheim: Hey there! Arrogant newcomer? No way, man! You're fantastic and humble, I really enjoyed your company. Looking forward to seeing you soon again, mate!
jpedro: Merci viel mal, Jan!
Spaggen: Thanks for dropping by, mate!
I was so sick and tired of always getting in troubles with hands, I decided to do some practice.
Draw 100 hands: DONE!
