Here's a frustration sketch I scratched out this afternoon between trying to start a painting for a Patreon supporter (couldn't manage to draw the left eye in that one, either! >_<) and drawing today's A* page:


I was trying to get myself to draw with proper drawing form, because I've found that I've devolved into a limp-wristed, palm-downward style that can end up being painful after you've been putting weight on your drawing hand with the wrist bent back for a while. Don't do that, silly me! Got to keep the palm up, with the blade of the hand braced against the drawing table; I went and watched Jack Kirby's iron wrist in action for a while (that thing could draw 6+ pages a day, every day!) to remind myself how to do things properly! (I think that's the only video of Kirby drawing that I've been able to find on YouTube. Anyone know of any others?)

So if you see me slacking with the wrist on my Twitch live stream, please use the chat box there tell me to straighten up and draw right! ^_^ (I think part of what's contributed to it is that I draw and paint on the same image, and those activities use different grips (and actually different grips among the different size brushes, too, really), and I might be getting those confused. : P)
