What to do when your wrist and the point of your middle finger are hurting but you have a lot to draw?

Ice your hand, keep it straight, don't use it for a few days. After that, make sure to do your stretches before, during, after drawing sessions. Remember to draw from your elbow and shoulder, never your wrist.

Carpal Tunnel will fuck you up if you don't watch out.

You tell whoever you have to draw for that you can't, and then you relax the fuck out of that hand.

When old people say that young people (In this case, young is not just 15 year olds) think they're immortal, I'm increasingly coming to realize that they don't mean "You're doing stupid dangerous shit" all the time, but also that they frequently don't take care of themselves and end up with injuries. If you draw, don't give yourself Carpal Tunnel, because then you'll end up in far more trouble than skipping a few days of drawing you have to do.

Aside from what the others have said about resting, this might also be a good time to re-evaluate your grip. A lot of artists does some weird kind of death grip thing with their pencil and that promotes tension and down the road pain and injury.

I'll do that. Thanks.

I've been drawing for about 10 hours. I've seen artists draw for way more time than this without pain. I must be doing something wrong.

>>2369465
I notices that putting pressure on the pen not with the tip of the finger, but a little down, like when you have big nails, takes a lot of from the effort to do it

but now I have to figure out a way in which I don't bend my wrist upwards, since I like to rest my hand on the drawing surface and the new way of griping the pen makes me do so

Take estrogen because obviously you are not a man. I swear women and their arthritis and fat problems are shitting this board up.

Tell that to my Grandad and he will beat you to death with his crutch.

Tell that to my Grandad and he will beat you to death with his crutch. Arthiritis is serious business.
