Show your workstation

Postby Palladium » Mon Jul 21, 2014 11:12 am

Hey guys, thought I would start a new thread for showing off your workstations since I hadn't seen one on here yet. Having just read an article about workstation ergonomics, I was curious to see how many of you have found solutions to the issues that many digital artists find themselves having, like tendonitis, back pain, headaches and many other aches associated with sitting in front of your computer screen too long lol. Here is the link to the article I read if anyone is interested:D Followed by pics of my workstation which is setup all wrong imo (maybe I'll get some ideas from all of yours :D). Anyways, feel free to post pics of your workstations or comment on others.

woah dude thats a lot of info there. Never knew about that stuff O_O to avoid health problems i usually take breaks after every hour (doing some exercises) and the other thing digital artists need to watch out is for eyes. Concentrating on screen reduces blinking rate which might cause dryness in the eye, with the less lubrication in eyeballs it isn't surprising if one gets spectacles. I recently visited an ophthalmologist, he advice me to wash face and take these rests after staring at screen once in an every hour or 2. Hope it helps C:
also im so jelly of that drafting table thing of yours

My desk is too messy and im too lazy to clean=_=)/

sachsapne- Yeah, I always get dry eyes while working digitally, I read somewhere else that it could be helpful to look away from the screen and at something some distance away. Maybe it's the focusing on the one distance ie (your computer screen), that is causing the issues. Just seems I get similar eye dryness, headaches while watching tv, reading etc etc. I don't think our eyes were made for staring at anything for an extended period of time lol. I have also visited my ophthalmologist, nothing wrong with mine but a slight astigmatism in my left eye. I like your setup btw, it's compact, I use a similar setup when I travel. As for my drafting table, I just cleaned it off, had a printer scanner, old sketches, and stacks of clothing on it lol. Hopefully I'll use it now.:)

haha, sachsapne! I see you have the pics of human body on the wall~! That's very cool! ^_^
Byy... the way... I can't show mine, because I am working in my bedroom, and it is very small and very messy and if any mistake the photos can be rude, I want to be a polite guy!

I hope one day I can have a big nice place to do! ^_^
