Arthritis - Carpal Tunnel

Is anybody else afraid of what drawing is going to be like when your body starts hating you?

Does anybody out there do exercises before drawing?

When? Too late.

I do wrist stretches throughout the day and wear an orthopedic brace when necessary. Drawing doesn’t bother me nearly as much as just general long term computer usage does, but when sketching I try to take breaks every few minutes (especially if drawing on the Cintiq which is a wrist BBQ) and stretch my arm out. After a few hours I’m usually wasted for the day…after that drawing a straight line is painful.

Of course I’m also painfully out of shape which does not help.
