Just updating my journal for the sake of updating my journal.

In case some were wondering about the lack of uploads, I've recently began having pains in my drawing hand and wrist. Being a self-taught artist, the drawing method I grew up using has seen very little adjustment (until recently at least). Along my path to ultimate artist-dom, I was taught the "correct" way of drawing by a man named Yuri, but since that time in high school I've long since gone back to what felt easier for me. I've always depended solely on rigid wrist movements for drawing and now since I've recently began having pains in the nerves (I think that's how it works), I decided it was time to finally make a lasting adjustment.

So, I've begun incorporating more arm movement and loosening up my shoulders so that I can make larger sweeping motions in my art and sketch more loosely and with less pressure from my hand. At the moment, my art is a bit shaky, but since I've been doing a few exercises daily, I've begun to regain a bit of control. I have pages and pages in my sketchbook filled with ellipses, spirals, and geometrical shapes in perspective (no straight edge). My natural line drawing abilities are definitely better than they've ever been, but completing an entire drawing is still a chore.

This is all a welcome challenge, as I only see myself improving from this. Long story short, I'll be back.
