oedipism:

I’ve been wanting to write something like this for a little while now.

Basically I wanted to let people who are illustrators know that if they have a condition that makes it more difficult to draw, that they can overcome it.

I’ve had fairly bad essential tremor (shaky hands) all my life, and while it’s getting worse with age, it’s not impossible to overcome it. Here are my left and right hands on a fairly average day~

And generally, I draw by steadying my dominant hand at the wrist with the other

But, what I want to address is the fact that it’s totally fine to get frustrated.

Whether it’s a mental or physical condition stopping you, you will inevitably get fed up, because it seriously sucks when you want to draw and just simply can’t do what you know you’d be perfectly capable otherwise.

Just be sure when this happens, to step away from the drawing, take a break for 10 minutes, then get back to it, otherwise you’re just going to make the situation worse. Don’t get into the mindset that you won’t be able to finish it if you don’t do it right now, because that’s not true, you can.

And most importantly, remember that your progress is going to be slower, depending on the severity of your condition. Don’t let that faze you, just work to the best of your abilities and practice as much as you can to catch up to everyone else.

Use your condition as a reason to practice more, not as an excuse to give up!
