>>2386865 I believe Sycra once said something about artistic progression. It was along the lines of, sometimes you'll be good, sometimes bad, sometimes REALLY bad, and in my experience, occasionally I'll come back from a break better than before. It's a rollercoaster. But yes, taking a break is goodd, you want to keep your passion hot, stoke its fire, don't let it burn out, etc.
It helps to do little things to stay 'up to speed', though, like contour dawing, shape, observational sketches from around the house, like you would in lieu of exercises. That is, stretches, yoga, light cardio, or whatever.
TL;DR Take a break. When you get fatigued mentally, your art suffers, then you do.
I'm not sure. Not comparable to lifting I think. If you are burned out though, it can be beneficial but in my experience was that it's mostly beneficial in the sense of refreshing your passion and creativity. It won't magically boost your technical skill level.
When I feel burnt out by what I'm doing, then I whip out sketchbooks and indulge in random stuff. Occasionally you will stumble into something worthy of incorporating into a later work. My current storyline started as a demon head,then a character design of a grown up offspring of two major players. Then it became a scene,then I did a few more scenes,and a story grew. You.never know what you will come up with.
