Colourblind
Stupid colour. What a shame that the only non-colour-oriented art job I've had was animation, which finds numerous other ways to suck.

Today I'm feeling frustrated and inadequate because of the lack of rods (or is it cones?) in my retinas.

Lack of sleep may also have something to do with it.

My love, razzek, would know. She's the go-to lady for all information relevant to retinas, what with hers being mostly detached.

It's cones. As a fellow colorblind artist, I empathize. I recently did an assignment chiefly in the colors I am most blind to, and felt a deep sense of panic almost the entire time.

Allegedly, because most of the genes involved in color vision are tied to X chromosomes, men are more commonly colorblind than women.

But between you, me, and another artist I know (thundercake @ dA) that's three colorblind women, all artists, in just my own social networks.

Anyway, don't feel stupid. Remember that you overcome it nine times out of ten, where other people don't have to, so clearly you are better ways they can never be. You are a defiance.

It might be that only artists ever comment on their colorblindness, and the artist population seems to be skewed towards women.

*hugs* But you are awesome in other ways!

If it makes you feel any better, I had no idea you were colorblind until you told me, it really doesn't show in your art to me honestly. You have a better sense of color than a lot of people who are fully color-sighted.

At least you can stalk your enemies under the cover of darkness with the aid of your vastly superior night vision... or something?
