Animators and Neck Strain

Hi all.

This is an open question to all animators or artists out there.

In our line of work, we constantly hunch over to look at our work.

Then I realized that we don't. To be more specific, I'm referring to those of us who draw on sketchbook and manual 2D animators.

I'm also one of those who use a tablet PC to draw my animations or paintings.

After being folded up, a tablet PC becomes sort of like a digital sketchbook. I still have to hunch over the thing and draw.

After about 15 minutes, I sense a sort of pain at the back of my neck.

I'm certain sketchbook artists/2D also experience such pain.

"I'm not hearing a question, Mister Shadow."

Oh yes, of course. My question would be.

How do you guise solve this neck strain issue?

That is all. Thank you

I would say try using a laptop riser to prop the PC tablet at an angle to avoid some hunching over the tablet to draw. Take breaks and do some stretches to avoid neck strain.
