Theres too much to say about my wrist in one go but basically its been weeks since i've drawn and im finally trying some again

It will be very short, couple of hours tops, and i may have to switch between my left and right hand at times to make things easier on my injury

dont worry i know what im doing. if i get just a tiny bit of pain i'll cut it short. please dont ask about my wrist. touchy subject


Wow I am laughing at how empty my dA page is without my premium membership. Feel like i'm existing as a ghost right now.

My wrist has been terrible these past months, but the good news is i'm finally on the mend (I think). Thanks to a new strict routine, i've been able to suppress the pain and even draw painlessly for a couple of hours each day, which is a huge improvement considering I spent so many weeks in constant pain. If this leads to a full recovery, I will post a more detailed journal explaining what I know about the problem and how you guys might be able to prevent it. I really wish I knew all this stuff I learned back when I first got it >< Apparently coffee irritates joint inflammation. I had to quit coffee. It was terrible. I cry. 

Anyway, being on hiatus has been very upsetting for me. A life without drawing is a sad one indeed. I cried many times. I actually have come to resent drawing because I now associate it with unbearable pain, but hoping to work on that and get my confidence back. 

I would just like to stress that being unable to work on the comic and my other projects has been awful for me, and I hope I havent angered anyone by suddenly stopping all updates. I'm still not fully healed, but as I'm drawing again, you might wonder why I havent yet jumped back onboard with RikDik or those contest characters I have to draw. The reason is that, while i'm still weak and not feeling up to a full day of work, I dont want to apply myself to a project that's very important to me. I want to make sure I am happy and healthy and ENJOY working on it (not because i feel the pressure of this hiatus hanging over me). Also, I'm being a little selfish and using what time I have to catch up on some personal doodles to feel a little better. 

I have spent my time marathoning anime, playing hours of pokemon and disgaea, icing my wrist for 2 hours each day, driving lessons, seeing family.. many doctors appointments. etc etc. Living on tumblr. 

Thanks so much to the lovely buddies who have drawn me gifts and given me support. I'm sure the poor people that know me on skype are sick to the teeth of me ranting and complaining all the time xD But without these fab things in my life I probably would have melted into my bed forever and never emerged. 

Well thats it.... Just thought i'd cover my ass again before people start wondering 
Rusty - Ref 2015 by shazy
Rusty - Ref 2015
Wrist stopped hurting long enough for me to finish my new Rusty ref finally. The old one is coming up for 4 years old -sweats- 


Rusty is a self-centred, independent and generally lazy trainer. He was born and raised in a small island community in south Hoenn, and currently travels the Hoenn mainland. His father owns a fossil research lab, so Rusty's team consists of pokemon he grew up with, and he considers them his family. Despite being called a trainer, he didnt do a lot of training at all, and finds battling troublesome. Because of this, he's often flat out broke and overly cautious with money. He can sleep for hours and hours, and enjoys drawing the most, but his weak wrist means he can't do it for very long. 

Maynard was a gift to his family and was given to Rusty as a chikorita, when Rusty was aged 6. They hated each other at first, but now are very close. Rusty gets severely pissed off if anyone calls Maynard ugly.

He's nervous in social situations, self concious about his fashion sense and sexuality. His ideal career would be working for a daycare, where he can spend all day looking after pokemon, and not having to be around people so much. He is terrible at smiling. 

He loves prehistoric life; its the only thing that will get him enthusiastic in any conversation. 

Lately he's been doing odd jobs as a Team Aqua grunt, to pay the bills. 


Ehhh I hate typing loads. Rusty is loosely based on me, he is meant to be my sona. His pokemon are the same that I use in my tournament team. I love them x3

Outfits and more on his team here -->…
Old ref -->…

thanks so much

wrist is having a good day. Hoping i'm finally on the right track with my recovery.

For now, i'm doing some small things here and there to try and stay positive.


I have Instagram

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 6, 2015, 6:08 AM

Finally decided to start using this thing. 

Since i cant do full paintings and i'm getting by doing small doodles maybe i'll update instagram instead?

sorry again for huge hiatus ehh. I hate going this long without posting any art. I have things i could upload but I just dont feel like it until the wrist is completely healed. 


I cry

thanks for all the support.
