Pinned toot

Hey everyone, I'm Emily and I make an electric superteen webcomic called Blitz Phoenix!
I do mostly comic art, but occasionally post stand-alone illustrations.

I'm not doing Inktober this year, but I wanted to do at least one ink drawing this month. Drawing some orca whales seemed like a good way to break in my new pens!

oh i thought that background was darker

that's what i get

i've been feeling like i don't know how to draw lately so i decided to draw the thing i draw when i'm testing new media

I kind of like how the highlights look under these filters, though

another colored pencil drawing of Sarkas, since now I finally have my new turquoise pencil and can color him appropriately.

I wanted to try highlighting him with a yellow-green but I think that ruined it, haha

Eating rations bc your dumb ranger failed their roll to go find food for the group out in the wild

(It's me I'm the dumb ranger)

the piranha plant is my favorite but the Terry in the top left corner made me laugh when I found it, lol

also sticky notes are great for work drawings, super limited canvas stuff is fun now and then

these are old (and dusty bc I don't take care of my things) but I still like them

Can't totally tell from the pictures here but this is a fairly small mouse, so the boards in there themselves aren't all that big. I don't know what to do about the case yet, but I hope I can figure something out!

This is one of my old favorite mice, that I stopped using because the right click would let up on its own when I'd hold it down for too long. (I suspect that was a case issue, but dont know for sure!)

But this doesn't look unreasonable to remove? I need to look around and see if I can decide what I'd want to do, but I'd really love to customize this to fit my hand in a way where I can "wear" it, sort of like a glove, and use it on my lap.

So this might be my next project.

I wonder how difficult it would be to take a mouse apart and build my own, to fit my specific needs?

I do OWN a book on electronics that I've just never gotten around to reading.

I just want to go home and draw comics 😒

"Didn't you just say your arm hurts?"

Yeah but tbf that's not what's causing the pain this time so I can draw as long as I'm careful, stop looking at me like that

I took yesterday off because my arm hurts and, spoiler alert, I'm back at work today and it still hurts

I feel like I should say "take care of your body" here or something wise or helpful, but we all know you won't until it bites you back

Ugh, nevermind.

I looked through maybe 20 mice of a style that is pretty much what I've been working for, but they all:

* are cheaply made
* break after a few weeks/months
* have questionable placement of buttons
* are missing basic mouse features (scroll wheel is a big one)

And even if they check *enough* boxes that I could deal with it, then they turn out to be too big for my little hands. πŸ€·β€β™€

I MIGHT have found something that could work, like immediately after posting this, lol

Do they make ergonomic mice that are actually like

helpful

is that a thing

Need to color comics today but my arm is so tired. πŸ˜₯ We'll see how it goes, I guess.
