Every time I go to dA to look up some art, I nearly type what I meant to search for into the Status Update box. Every time. Some interesting statuses nearly happened.
Oh my god deviantart, why did you decide you want to be facebook AND tumblr at the same time instead of yourself?
No, this is not a journal about me taking a hiatus, not the kind you're thinking of anyway. xP

It's about my hand (again). As most of you know, I've been suffering from chronic pain caused by repeated motion injury in the tendons of my wrist and hand for... what has now been around two years. There's nothing to do about it but rest it, but it's hard to rest your dominant hand, so the recovery has been patchy, with bouts of pain after I've done something. Well, I've gotten really tired of that, and decided to do some HARDCORE RESTING.

For a month now I've not been:

-drawing
-painting
-doodling
-sewing
-sculpting
-filing
-cutting
-doing exercise than involve putting any weight on the hands (not even riding a bike)
-playing vidya for more than 30 mins
-cleaning more than strictly necessary
-carrying heavy things

Instead, I've been gently stretching every other day and rubbing in an ointment.

As you can imagine, it's been horribly dull. I feel like a zombie. x-x But it has helped - there's no pain at rest and very little when I'm doing something. I'm going to try and last as long as I can. But, I need your help-! I've been getting more into reading and watching things, as those activities don't require the use of both hands. So! I'm going to ask you for recommendations. Books, movies, blogs, shows (that don't have more than 5 seasons please). Can be both fiction and non-fiction, I'll give anything a try. :'D I have an itch for some good fantasy though!

Susan by Roqi
Susan
Susan Fitzlewis, investigative journalist. Ph.D. Three languages. One brother, one niece, one ex-fiancé, one miscarriage. Parents deceased. Albino. Poor eyesight, great hearing. Hobbies: reading and music. What do you mean by 'that doesn't describe you as a person'?

The process on this went something like this: I wanted to color it with light pencils, but I screwed up with the inking and made a few blots. So I scanned it, cleaned it in Photoshop, and thought I'd do just flats. But then flats were insufficient, so I thought I'd add some gradients. But then that wasn't good enough, so I started lightly shading.
And now my hand hurts xD;

But I do believe it's nice.

The violin sucks, I know. I added it mostly as an afterthought because the picture looked plain with nothing in her hands. I'm entertaining an idea of doing a few pics, my characters with the objects they love. But consistency is not a trait I possess, so achieving success in doing any sort of a series is a big question. :P

It just feels so good to be able to finally draw old ocs exactly the way you've imagined them all along.

Ink, dip pen, photoshop, I didn't keep track of the time.

Mrs. Wallace by Roqi
Mrs. Wallace
As my part of an art trade, Richard's original wife. The one he married as a human still. I don't know her name- I'm not even sure if he remembers. It was probably something like Mary or Anne or Dorothy or Elizabeth, because everybody had names chosen from a pool of around 30 in those days. Let her be just Mrs. Wallace.

I tried for a style similar of that in those small medallions. Like maybe if he had commissioned one, this is what it would look like (except painted and not drawn with pencils, maybe). Her hair definitely wasn't that red, but every lady wanted to be a redhead like the Queen, so in a portrait Mrs. Wallace would insist on being... enhanced.

She was a bit homely, yes, but Richard never married for looks.

I know the dress is a travesty, give me a break x'D I hate clothes so much.

Around... three hours, I think.

HELLO, THIS IS HAGGIS

*falls over* I replied to the herb garden roleplay, in case you wanted to know ;w;

*sobs* I'm sorry I'm such a horrible, not-alive roleplay partner. I'm trying to be more active. ;w;
