I paint at a much larger scale so I use totally different muscles than I would for fine detail drawing on a 16" tablet. If I had to do fine detail drawing on my canvas at my easel my arm would get tired real fast.
I want to see how commercial artists and illustrators who are putting in 8-hour days all week have their setup to minimize strain and fatigue and stay productive.
There are zillions of pictures and videos on the web showing setups but they never seem to show the actual ARTIST in them so you see their arm and wrist and shoulder and head tilt and other things that affect ergonomics. And I can't find any videos, websites, books, etc, on this.
