Ok, over the days I have been furiously animating over and drinking copious amounts of coffee. I found a big side effect of doing lots of computer animation.
THIS is not a good thing, I was wondering around work with my eyes feeling like they had gone on a trip to mars and back.
What causes it is, not blinking enough while in front of the computer and other environmental factors like air conditioning to boot. It effectively does what it's name suggests dries out the surface on the eye, leaving you with very sore eyes.
Although there is a very easy cure. Eye drops:)! and trying to remember to take breaks every 5 minutes and blinking more often.
So if you are deciding to do lots of animating in a stint, be forewarned and follow the steps above. :P
