so recently ive been struggling with my eye sight. & its really been hard trying to draw for that reason and today i just found this nice plump bump on my wrist 😬 and it hurts . and this really isn't my biggest concern in life right now but what is . is im suppose to be getting a job around the beginning of August and i was kinda planning on being able to use my good right hand for work so yeah.πŸ˜… and im probably gonna try to not use my hand as much as possible intel i can get the problem fixed. and i would be using my shoulder right now to draw with instead of my wrist but i have to finish my drafting table first. i might be doing some digital art but i might have a hard time doing that i just dont want all of my art skills going down the toilet πŸ˜‚ wall im trying to recover. i have so many projects to finish & not a lot of time to do so. im not lying when i say that i cant help but feel like a total disappointment. this is because i tend to finish EVERYTHING OCD lol . i have" to". so seeing all of these things just sitting there half done is just killing me. inside. idk how i should feel about all of these things. and in no way am i saying that im just gonna give up. and no i will not give up. im just stuck in between a rock and a hard place right now in life. and it just seems weird? i just never expected to be here you know. but anyway with all of that said here is the two latest things that i have done. one of them is from 100% my imagination and the other is for my brother its suppose to be Todd Howard. and here is a picture of my poor wrist πŸ˜…

Hi jdn. I’m so very sorry to read about your troubles. I noticed it been awhile since you wrote this so hopefully you might have gotten a bit better since then. I’ve read about some artist that learned to use their left hand then they could not use the right one any more. You might not be able to draw as well with the left but at least you might be able to draw something, better then nothing at least :) I have very dry eyes and use eye drops at times, maybe it might be helpful to you to depending on your specific eye problems. I like both of the pictures you’ve made! :D I didn’t know who Todd Howard was, but then I looked it up, I can see that you really captured his likeness! And the picture you did from your imagination looks great too, reminds me of surrealist art! I think you have a very interesting personal style and a creative mind! :D I really I hope you will get better and find a way to be creative in a way that doesn’t hurt you.

thank! you so much for the kind words and for all of the support that you and that the hole Proko community has given me through out this . you all have no idea how much this has helped me. like really' it truly has changed my entire life for the last three weeks its been very slow but i know for certain that its been only for the better im doing better now not only fiscally but also mentally and spiritually. this has been. the worst slash best part of my life so far and i know that its never gonna stay good forever but with my eyes being open once again i feel as if i will never find myself in the same place again so thank you πŸ˜‰πŸ‘Œ ok next. so yes i do as well have very dry eyes and i am gonna start to use more eye drops. and im reminding myself to blink more often also i always try to use my left hand when i can because i feel like any day. i could lose my right one lol πŸ˜‚πŸ’ͺ of course if that happened i would just make my self a real mean right hook AKA a really wicked sharp hook for my missing hand lol also i have been trying to paint a little bit here and there with my shoulder which help's a bit. its mainly when im doing lots of typing. and when fiscally drawing and lifting heavy stuff which is still every day but now that i have a wrist rap and that asper cream its not as painful so hopefully i will over the course of 3 months give or take lol ill be in way better shape thank god πŸ˜… and btw thanks so much about the comment's of my drawings it means a lot. πŸ’•πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ and i will make updates on my situation now and then. again thank you so much for everything and GOD BLESS! βœŒπŸ˜„

Dang... man you should rest for like 15 min for each 2-3 hrs of drawing!! I'm suffering eye problems as well so hope you can get over it by resting more. For the hand... Just don't be too tense, try drawing from your arm, you can get much relaxed wrist when you do so.

it mainly from not having a proper setup but hopefully soon im looking to change that. also the eye thing is from the last four years from staying up late and looking at a screen also from playing tense games that make it hard to blink. and now im putting limitations on how much and how long i play for. btw i think that its a bit to late for me to really reverse any real damage but i can say now that i am getting better and im not gonna let it get any worst :D✌ and thanks for all the love and support. this truly means a lot to me so again thanks βœŒπŸ˜‰

thanks a ton this means a lot to me. seriously i mean it thanks so much!. 😁 btw the condition that i have is called. a ganglion cyst its nothing dangerous but if it keeps getting bigger than i might have to get it removed. what caused idk but it mainly happens what you're wrist is under to much pressure so im gonna have it looked at hopefully soon 🀞😁

Hey man, you're not a disappointment. You might be disappointed with the situation, but YOU are not a disappointment. You're a human who is encountering obstacles on the path to mastery. Either accept that art isn't gonna work out for you or figure out a way to overcome those difficulties. In hard times I find it helpful to ask: "why is this problem awesome?" And if you really can't do art, you can still figure out a way to do something else creative and productive with your life. You got this man :) treat yourself with love and compassion-this isn't your fault. Just do your best and get 1% better every day

I had a problem with pain in my hand. (From playing guitar actually, it was my left wrist, so not so bad. Still was a problem when painting digitally for a longer period tho) What helped me was getting one of those compression gloves (not sure what they are actually called:P) from a pharmacy. I kept it on for some time and now I just put it on when I feel some pain. Had no problems with my wrist since. However I didn't get any bumps on my wrist. I'd say if it doesn't go away maybe see a doctor:P

thank you so much for the love and support. i really do appreciate that you took the time to respond to my post even though its not the most pleasant topic you still took the time do do such so thank you so very much . πŸ˜… and im glad that you mentioned that glove thing. because ive been thinking to my self for awhile now that i should get one i just keep forgetting about it lol . ps the condition that i have is called. a ganglion cyst. i just found this out yesterday. from what people are saying its not a huge issue but if it gets bigger and starts hurting a bunch then i will need to get it surgically removed. however i think that i am gonna end up going to see a doctor about it soon because there could be other things going on that i might not be able to see. so fingers crossed 🀞😁
