how does anyone work full time and then draw *anything* after

comic, i love you, but i am tired

I realized I'd been going to bed late like every night last week so I gave up and went to bed early, lol

I'm awake now for once BUT I'd still rather be in bed rn

CW for mentioning beer. 


I treat my comic drawing time as me-time, a way to recharge my batteries after a working day. Comfy clothes, music or audiobook in my ears, a nice beer. It probably helps that I do my paper drawing in the sofa. I try to have something ready to blueline, something to pencil and something to ink so that I can choose depending on my tiredness.

But sometimes, yes, even too tired for that. I'm only human. :)

@yncke yeah that's good!

I gave myself a neck/shoulder injury by over-drawing and not taking care of myself, so it's hard to "relax" with comics anymore, haha. not to say it's unpleasant but I have to make sure I'm positioned right or I'll be in pain for a week. but I do have some comfy pajamas now that I usually get out for comics 😊

I did realize last night my problem was I've been going to bed super late every night this week 😅 so I gave up and went to bed
