I was lucky enough to meet Skottie Young the other day when he came to visit SCAD. He mentioned his routine was to do a warm-up sketch, which he would upload online, and then get to work. When I heard this, I knew this was what I had to start doing, and I recommend it to others. This routine allows me to warm up before I get to work, practice quickening my pace, draw things I usually wouldn't and so do valuable research, and give myself an excuse to make use of my Tumblr account!
So now you can start following me on Tumblr! Or just go here if you want to see my sketch of ancient Thor:
My husband joined me in this Thor sketch challenge too! Hopefully I can convince him to post his as well. If so, I'll edit this post to link it.
