Hi.
A (personal) blog about good food, cute things (mostly yaoi), epic movies and games and other things I stumble upon. Just take a look at the Tagged Stuff section. 。◕ω◕。

May the cuteness be ever in your favor.

This is an occasionally NSFW blog, mostly concentrated in
the #yyh tag.
okolnir whispered : HEY HELLO i read your cintiq woes and I'm sorry to hear the trouble ;-; if you dont mind me intruding, I personally prop it up at 75-80*, and a little further into the desk so I can rest my elbow on the desk, the pinkie end of my knuckle against the cintiq, and maneuver the pen using my first 3 fingers only, with the knuckle as my pivot. or for longer lines, my elbow as pivot. I feel like this would be a relaxed stance since very few muscles are actually involved in maintaining grip. good luck!

thank you so much Shilin! I actually haven’t tried this yet but it seems like an excellent idea (Ive had mine right on the edge of my desk so I’m sure that’s contributing to the soreness I’ve been getting in my forearm area) 
I’ll probably let my arms rest up for a little while and give that a try before I give up on the cintiq all together, because I really do love it and wish with all my heart that I could use it without ruining my arms! I’m also publishing it so that anyone else that’s dealt with similar problems might try it this way!

I’m going to reblog this here too since it’s posted, I hope it might be helpful for anyone who is fighting a downhill battle with their cintiqs or are looking for ideas on how to deal with such a big chunk of metal on their regular size desk! I’ve also changed my setup earlier this year since I took down my gargantuan desk and I want to share my current setup: (please ignore my tetris keyboard)

I feel that putting the cintiq up this way, rather than flat on the desk or at a lower (<45*) incline, saves space and prevents the user from hunching over the cintiq to induce neck/back/shoulder strain, as well as minimize your contact with the cintiq screen (for heat complaints), all the while still allowing you to rest the weight of your arms on multiple points, just as you normally would be able to if you were drawing on paper. when I need to draw pages on paper, I still have enough drawing room by shoving the keyboard in.

when u think yr drawing looks great but then u flip the canvas

feminist speeches

i’ve heard in the longest time, and the result? the result from these men who claim that they would be all for feminism if it weren’t for all “the man hating”?

do not be fooled for one fucking second

you can be as kind, calm, attractive and male inclusive as they demand for our voices to matter and the result is the same.

these people do not hate feminism because it “hates men”, these people have historically and to this day hated feminism because it’s purpose will result in the taking away of their power.
