I will keep this journal short by saying that I have some physical problems due to RSI. I don't know how long I will stay inactive, but I let you know when I am better.
Here is a journal that discribes a similiar situation and what Tendons pains are exlamating RSI:
Tip for Artists: Tendon pain? FIND HELP!So, as some of you might have noticed I haven't been drawing all that much ever since the end of inktober, almost four months as of now. I lately realized I have completely forgotten to tell everyone what is going on, so, here we go.
RSI (repetitive stain injury) or tendinitis is what happens when one person repeats the same move over and over again untill the point of tendon damage. Which is what happened to me during inktober.
Of course quite some factors come into play with injuries like this. A wrong pose or workplace, working too long without pause or proper stretching, and stress. I had a very tough exam week during inktober. During this week I was often tired, but in the evening I would still push myself to make something for the inktober challenge. That was stupid, of course.
The problem with tendons is that there's very little blood vessels running though them. Very little living cells among the bands of elastic tissue. Thus, they heal very slowly.
