“Find your place on the planet. Dig in, and take responsibility from there.”

Here is a lovely piece of fanart (is that one word these days?) by Stevie Lewis, a visual development (“vis dev” to the cool kids) artist over at Dreamworks. Check out more of her great, charming work on her blog: chocosweete.blogspot.com
Click on the image above if you want to leave her a nice comment (because Fred and I couldn’t figure out how to link directly to the original post of hers on Blogspot, even though Fred is 8 years younger than me)!
I always feel a stupid amount of pride when someone I know’s art shows up on my dash with a lot of notes. <3 Yay Stevie! I always loved this piece.
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.
I first saw this video… I dunno, a couple of years ago? But after seeing this it instantly became part of my daily routine. Having your wrist crap out on you because you haven’t taken care of yourself while drawing is agonizing and not fun.
Get to stretching, artist buddies.
I usually don’t reblog stuff when a post demands it of me, but I found this video to be very helpful.
I’ll start trying these and see if they help!
Ok my wrist has been acting up a lot recently but one of these really stretched something out I could feel it pretty good and it def relieved some of the achey soreness pretty quickly actually so!!!
ohhhh I tried these and boy, they feel great. Definitely using these.
