I’m reblogging to my main because guys! Go support Sparkler! I’m not just saying that because I want to work for them some day (though, in full disclosure, I REALLY REALLY DO) but because what they put out is great! For the price of one really fancy Starbucks drink, you get a month of KILLER MEDIA CONTENT for the female gaze, and get to support people who really and truly want to contribute to the industry. So go! Go do it!
I’m That Person who thinks up kids for my character couples + OTPs. Oops. This one looks a lot like his daddy!! GOSH I WONDER WHO IT IS.
Every artist who sees this post should do the following:
- Watch the video.
- Follow the instructions
I can’t stress you enough about how important these exercises are for your drawing hand. You don’t wanna get CTS of Tendonitis and similar stuff that will prevent you from making art or even hold a pencil.
Okay, this guy is my HERO. I just did these exercises as I watched the video, and already my arms and hands feel better. I have a degenerative tendon disease that prevents my muscles, tendons and ligaments from retaining their elasticity, and so anything that maintains the health of my bendy parts is important.
I URGE YOU. Even if you don’t draw, do these several times a day. Even just sitting at a computer can do serious damage. My dad, who was a rugby player, a carpenter, and now a handyman, suffered from severe carpal tunnel syndrome, simply as a result of sitting at the computer at the end of the day to play a little solitaire. Don’t let it happen to you!
((Guys, I will reblog this like, 5 times a day just so you all will see this. This is REALLY helpful, and it’s quick and easy.))
Wow, these are REALLY helpful. And yes, this is not just good but IMPORTANT for more than artists — if you type a lot, play a lot of video games, do anything that requires lots of repetitive movements of your hands, wrists, and arms (gardening, sewing, factory work), these can help. Even if you don’t yet get pain these are a great preventative measure, because the damage builds up over time. Youth is no protection.
And like he says, you should feel a stretch, but don’t push it too far!
Signal boosting. Guys, I just did this and holy cow do I feel incredibly light and limber in my arms. Again, even if you don’t have any sort of disease, do this as a preventative measure.
DEAR LORD THIS FELT WONDERFUL THANK YOU SO MUCH TO omfg-am-i-hallucinating-again FOR SENDING THIS TO ME
holy fuck that was relaxing
Because of my hand and wrist pains, I do these quite regularly, and boy do they help! Anyone drawing or doing anything strenuous with their hands for long periods of time should consider trying these out.
I feel so great guys.
Reblogging to the main because this is SUPER USEFUL and I have been looking for this video for AGES
Also, some watercolor sketches.
A meeting in the stars!
This was just something quick I was trying to noodle around with. The gold looks better in person, of course. As usual!
