So said Tristan Elwell, a fantasy oil painter, and he was right! I love designing and painting stuff for video games and other illustration work as well. So much so that I had like 19 hour days for an extended period of time and my hand started hurting from wacoming off to much ;) So I've been doing what feels like skipping work for me for a couple of days; not getting up at 5:45am and working 2 hours before heading to the studio, and then working until like 11pm before crashing and repeating. Need to not destroy my hand :P
We all work so hard at doing what we do, but it feels like such a privilege do be doing this for a living as well, right? I love my job to bits, but everyone needs to have some downtime too. So if you guys are reading this; it's OK to take a little time off as well. Lot of long hours making games, and I'm not complaining one bit, but if you don't stop and experience other stuff, let your body recharge, you might be heading for a burnout.
It's OK to relax a little every now and then!
