Okay, Rin-mun is having a lot of issues lately. To the point that it’s getting scary. I’m really, really getting freaked out.
So, as some of you might know, I quit my job 9 months ago to pursue art full time from home. So far, doing okay! Except for right now.. my hand is royally pissed with me. I think I’ve over done it with pressure and drawing too long… soooo it’s angry.
Some quick highlights as to why I’m not seeing a doctor, and asking you guys:
1.) I have no insurance
2.) I have 150K in student loan debt (about 1500 a month alone in student loans)
3.) All though buisness is good, its still below how much I could be making
4.) I’m barely making ends meet.
The area between my index finger and thumb is really sore. Mostly around the joint of my thumb. I think it’s the tendons, and is a strain injury. Some days its fine and I can draw for a few hours, taking little breaks in between.. some days, I can hardly draw.
This is frustrating as HELL cause I NEED to get work done to survive.
What would you guys suggest I do? have you had this issue before?
Reason why I highlighted the above with my money issue, I can’t really afford to see a doctor or hand specialist. Even 100 dollars for a check up is a lot and hurts me pretty bad. (especially since I just dumped 200 dollars.. on my car.. AGAIN)
Things I have been doing:
1.) Trying to stretch it
2.) Taking breaks between art
3.) Sleeping with a thumb brace on
4.) Athletic tape over my hand while I draw and play games (even if it doesnt strain it, just about anything I’m worry about)
5.) ice and heat packs
I dunno if there’s much else I can do, or if you guys had the same issue and got something to help it. I need to try to still draw during this time, but I don’t want to make my hand worse….
Cutey Zac and Riven chibi doodle for Niel, and Vayne Doodle for Payton!
THANK YOU GUYS FOR SUPPORTING ME ON PATREON!!!!
Doodley doodle doodle dump! I got bombed by league people from a post on the league twitter Q3Q wuuaahhh….. so I was trying to doodle out requests. I made a Jinx too but she looked… well, bad, so I ditched it.
But yeah, stream asked for.. Dino Gnar doodle, and Urgot?! OKAY. So I doodled them as fast as I could!
Maybe I’ll make some prettier stuff soon.
|considering the presence of a tail and the extra large ears i guess rin's race would be a more direct descendant from gnar's D: or maybe they're even the same but those who live in warmer weathers don't need all the fur unlike those who live in frejlord! just wanted to share this little thought|
((OOC MOMENT: INDEED! Actually, I based Rin off of a desert fox (fenec fox) initially. Their ears are large to help keep them cool in the desert sun! It’s literally a built in cooling system for them. Their thick fur is to help with burning as well! So, if Gnar is fuzzier for the colder climate, then I think Rin could really be a descendant of this older race for sure! She just lost a lot of her fuzziness because A.) Her mother’s side, which most females are (commonly) less fuzzy (thought not always) and B.) They aren’t in prehistoric ages where she can’t keep herself warm, so her body isn’t technically needing of it. Nor is it too hot to protect from burning her feet. :D This whole Gnar release makes me happy with some old head cannons I had that I almost dropped in favor of chopping Rin’s tail off. Guess I don’t have to after all!))
Shoogy Shoogy SHOOOOGYYY
Everyone begged for it, so I had to do it |D Quick hour painting doodle for the new yordle champ.. ((MY TAIL IS SOMEWHAT JUSTIFIED NOW! SO I guess I don’t have to chop it off after all!))
