Hey there!

My name is Marley and I was born on the 19th of June 1993 in North Brabant, The Netherlands. I'm a shy, but very creative girl. Drawing grew from my hobby into a fanatic passion and so it'll be my dream job. Therefore you'll mostly notice me with pencil and paper or a sketchbook by my side. I also love sculpting, photography and writing novels or comic stories. Certainly I'll even start a course in animation and maybe someday you'll see some of such videos appear somewhere. I also play guitar and hope to be good one day. Speaking of instruments, I love Rock music. My favourite bands are The Rasmus, Within Temptation and Breaking Benjamin. Also I'm fond of piano and classic violin soundtracks, such as the music from Two Steps From Hell or calm music suitable for Yoga and meditation. Practicing Yoga is something I started not long ago. I find it very soothing as it calms down my spirit and gives peace to my heart. It's a curious and peaceful world. Beside art, yoga and music, I really love nature and animals, therefore I'm vegan. Nature is very beautiful and inspiring. I always walk barefoot at home, given the chance at places I visit or even in nature herself on sandy or grassy surfaces, just to feel closely connected with Earth. In that case, you could call me a true spiritual peace loving person. In fact it's indeed just who I am and it's something what makes and keeps me happy all the time. Just like drawing actually. Drawing something new on paper is like discovering your own new world. Each line you draw is taking you there. Right there between the creations of your mind, you found a place in your own world; it's called home.

Ahoy everyone! :wave:

A few weeks ago I've written a Journal Entry about my wrist. During the days it has
been hurting painfully and so I haven't been drawing or using my arm. But it's going
much better now. Yippee!

The pain is gone and if I do heavier things I barely feel the pain being around. I also
discovered why my wrist was hurting so much. It seems I'm dealing with an RSI
(Repetitive Strain Injury) issue. That means I impulsively and repetitively have been
using my arm too much. So each day I've drawn too long, without taking enough
breaks and without using a good straight posture while working. This way my wrist
didn't get the support it needed and became a painful matter. But with much rest,
supportive bandages and some small stretch exercises every day, I gave it the time
to heal and strengthen up. Most of all I couldn't use my hand and tried to handle
things with my left hand, which was quite difficult but it spared the other one.
So, I experienced an RSI issue for the first time. If I'll be careful, RSI is a quite
innocent matter and will heal overtime. But if I won't, the pain might become
chronic or shall keep interfering me while drawing. Here is an article about
experiencing RSI as an artist:…

So, I'm taking this issue very seriously and shall be careful when I'm at the drawing
table. I'll teach myself to use a good supportive posture and remind myself to take
breaks more often as well. If I keep holding on to this way, I'll be just fine and
working at art will be as fun as ever again! ^^

With this being said, I'll slowly pick up the pencil and carefully try to create some
sketches and small drawings again. The first days or weeks I might only do some
sketches or line art. I don't yet start a full colour drawing as it might yet take a
little too much pressure for my forearm. First I'll have to get a bit more used to the
idea of using the good posture. If that will go well I might add a little colour or grey
tones to my art again. Also I'm not quite sure about uploading new art yet. Maybe I
can share some simple doodles though, but the bigger artworks like the full colour
drawings and comic pages have to wait a while.

Anyways, luckily it's going a lot better. I truly missed holding the pencil.
But I'm glad I can carefully pick it up again and do what I love to do. Yay!
