Hey Holly, I really enjoy your art and youtube videos, and I'm really impressed with how fast you draw and how many hours you draw every day. Are there any stretches, exorcises, or methods that you use to prevent pain/damage to your hand?
Well I still have hand/wrist damage and all artists eventually run into it, mostly carpal tunnel. I actually had to buy one of these recently
which is a support brace so alleviate wrist strain. Because I ink comics there’s a lot of tedious repetitive motions that cause pain and damage, so when I’m not drawing I wear this.
I also use this
which is a laptop stand that elevates the drawing surface so I’m more likely to draw in larger strokes with my arm rather than my wrist.
Most people use drafting tables but I have too much shit for that and I find this works pretty well for my cintiq.
