Restart Update: The end of a painful period
IT'S TIME TO DRAW, AGAIN
As everyone will know, I have had a problem with my wrist, or at least I thought my wrist was the problem, but in fact my whole arm (from shoulder to wrist) was inflamed. This happened because I have been drawing and played video games too much this past year.
I use a mouse to draw pixel art, and the fact that my arm position wasn't changing at all from drawing to playing video games was the real problem. Let's add to it that I wasn't aware of how to stretch my arm, of how to strenght my arm up and that my overall body posture was bad. All those factores caused my arm to inflamed and to be really hard to cure, cause there were tons of factors involved.
Now I've learned how to stretch my arm so the tendons are more flexible and relaxed, I've learnt to take recurrent breaks while drawing and to strenght my arm up so it's more resistant. I've also added many postural stretchings to my daily routine and stopped playing pc video games.
After all that I've come trough, I really wanna ask you all to take care of your body if you have a sedentary job, cause I didn't and I had to spend a lot of money and time to patch it, when the problem was just my negligence and the thought of being almost unstoppable. I was too bound to the thought that the body was just a tool of my mind, now I have the awareness that it is an essential part of my being and I have to take care of it as I take care of my mind.
At my actual condition, I can draw a couple of hours without feeling any arm stress, so I restart the daily update mission, but with smaller updates for a while.
The daily updates will shift from a 7/7 to a 5/7 (Monday to Friday)
From the bottom of my heart,
thanks for sticking by, guys
This is an update I have been preparing for a while
- Completely reworked the single files folder: now every sprite has its own name and correct file size! You can now find any item by searching for its name in the folder!
- Fixed many sprites in the "Complete_Tileset" and reworked how the condo modular tiles work, so it's easier for you to build and personalize the buildings!
*Everyone who already bought the asset can get the new stuff for free
See you and happy game-making! :)

I'm glad to you see you are recovering. Welcome back! Take care of yourself. :)
happy for u
Thanks aba, I appreciate! :)
So happy to hear from you! Glad you're taking it easy and not overdoing yourself anymore. <3
Thanks Oasis, yee I have to chill a bit about drawing, the problem is that my job is also my favourite hobby ahahaha but I won't overdo for now, I miss being able to draw 8-10 hours x day :')
Welcome back! I’m happy to hear you’ve been feeling better, I’ve had to deal with similar issues and it’s definitely not fun. Work at your own pace and don’t strain yourself, as long as you’re in good health, the people who like your work will be happy, I’d say.
Thanks Jo, I totally agree with you, I won't push too much for now! <3
i hope you feel good now and good luck for the daily updates
Thanks sphixy, I'll do my best! :)
Welcome back! And glad you're looking after yourself.
Slower updates are no problem. It's just as exciting seeing things trickle in slowly. We know the end result is amazing, the pace we get there doesn't matter.
Thanks Timps, comments like yours really calm me down! I won't overdo for now!
You're so lucky! I'm glad you're doing so much better, I was very worried. It always amazes me how interconnected things are with the body, and also the body's connection to the mind. Taking care of yourself seems to be a lesson everyone has to learn the hard way, but I'm really glad you were able to learn that lesson at a point where you could still recover from it. I know too many people who weren't so lucky, needing surgeries or becoming disabled, or worse. No need to play catch up, you can take your time and only draw when you feel comfortable. Healing is way more important!
Indeed Sharm, I learnt the hard way, like many out there! I'm gonna listen to my body and draw only when I feel to, not gonna overdo again, never. Thanks for all your comments btw, they have been really useful! <3
I'm glad! I was a little worried I was being too intrusive, I have a habit of mothering everyone, but I figure it's better to annoy someone a little by saying too much than to keep silent when they could have really used the advice.
ahahah no no don't worry about being intrusive, I totally agree with your reasoning!
We love u, still taking care of yourself Lime
Its a very nice notice for us see you here again <3
Thanks for your immense love Kamus, I'll take care of my health more and more and I hope you all gonna do the same <3

Welcome back! I'm glad you're doing better. Don't over do it again.
Thanks prof., I'm so glad to be back!
Amazing to see you back. I guess I should go and stretch for a bit :x
ahahaha thanks Areinu, indeed have a daily nice stretch makes the difference!
"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger!" Welcome back, Lime! We missed you so much!
Thanks Aidas, that's so real, even if I'm still not 100% ok, I feel way more confident about my body cause I know how to read and take care of my body stress signals! <3
