Post Signs you have been working on the computer too long.
1) Having trouble remembering that the 'undo' command is not nearly as effective as an eraser for fixing a pencil drawing.

2) It is not necessary to hit CTRL S when putting down the pencil and walking away to get something to eat or drink.

3) Power outages are not a cause for screaming "NOOOOOOOOOO!" Darth Vader like when drawing or painting with traditional media.

4) Remembering that the surface area of ones drawing space is quite a bit larger on paper than a computer screen.

5) Tablet pens don't need sharpening. Pencils do.

6) A similar concept to #5 goes for paintbrushes.

7) Remembering that paint and pencil is kinda messy, and things smudge a lot more.

8) Cats are just as unhelpful walking over your pictures as they are walking on your keyboard.

9) Drawing or painting traditionally is much more soothing than staring at a computer monitor all day.

10) Finally, its easier to sit the model on ones lap, and its much more fun than a lap top being there.

Heh. Reminder note to self, the 'zoom' feature in most software is not available in traditional media.
